Aftermarket Air Intakes

Post  Ryan McKee on 6/15/2012, 5:52 pm

What are you guys running?

I don't want to spend a fortune. Even a cheapo kit from AutoZone would be alright. Just needs to ditch the stock box.

Suggestions?

Can't really say much about it, since it was on when I bought the Jeep, but mines got a AEM Bruteforce. Can't complain.

filter

Post  Mark on 6/16/2012, 8:27 am

I have a em also . , and i installed a aem water/dust cover on it also. No need to oil like most others.
Mine came with a spacer that i do not use as i installed a 99 intake on my 97 and ported the head at same time. One of the best filters you can get. They also have a really good shield that isolates it from engine compartment.
I have had both types of filters, if need be you can clean an aem in a stream in the woods and be on your way in 5 minutes, you can't do that with a oil type as they pollute.
I would not recommend a filter that you have to oil. They clog up fast in dusty conditions and some of the oil reaches air temp sensor and somewhat fouls it .
Oil type do not filter as well.
There is one of the companies that makes a knockoff aem that you can get on e bay for about one hundred less than a aem.
Aem also guarantees their filter against defects for life i believe.

I think I decided I'll be doing a Buick airbox, in order to keep the intake protected from water and the elements.
These photos are from the JeepForum write-up on the matter.

You could also use a ranger or f150 set up., but that looks good too.
The stock box is plenty good and has more flow capacity than you will ever need .
The set up you are going to use will not let it flow cool air.
You will be using under hood air that is hot /defeating cold air benefits, you want cold air !!! .
You are not going to drive UNDER WATER. And i'll bet you haven't had a problem yet, with stock box.
Just remove snorkel from stock box and buy a non oil type panel filter.
The stock box is a bit forward of fan shroud , thus sucking cooler air..
Been there done that.
I only have a aem because i got deal on it.
Other wise i would do as i said and have done.
Just something for thought .

Didn't want to soak a paper filter with mud or water when wheeling, and this box will do fine and still leave me with the option to put a cowl vent in later.

Quick update, I was able to get the intake box for cheap at Holland's in Billerica with a buddy today. Also grabbed an adaptor from Home Depot to adjoin the stock tubing to the Buick box.
