My only negative is that you can smell the plastic getting warm for the first few days and my entire engine compartment seems to be warmer, but not reading hot on the gauges, than with the stock intake.
This intake is top quality very nice product. The install was very straight forward and simple. It isnt really loud but gives a nice sound when you get into it. You can definatly feel the increase in power and after a week or so of enjoying the extra power I noticed almost 4-5 mpg gains. I also installed a airaid 1" throttle body space at the same time. The problem was with the spacer on the hood would not shut. I had to cut 1/2"-5/8" off the intake tube where it met the TB and buy a new bigger hose clamp to fit but thats the only problem. It wasnt a hard fix it just would have been nice to have that in the product description. Thanks to Banks for a great product and 4 wheel drive hardware for great service, got the parts in 3 days after orderin. Jeremy 99 TJ
