Unleash more of the engine's hidden horsepower with Airaid performance intake systems. Airaid's unique inlet track and filter combination is substantially less restrictive than the OE configuration.
Installed this in minutes. Very easy to do. Could see a great improvement in performance on the first drive. Highly recommend this.
Took a while to install due to the rust on the Jeep already but once I got past that very simple! Also i definitely noticed a difference in power which is much needed for the 2.4L. And it made it sound a lot better than the screeching of the 4 cyl engine! I would most certainly recommend this item!
The air raid synthamax cool air intake made a big difference, even from the k n n stock replacement filter. Very satisfied. Haven't been on the highway yet.
helped with throttle response
I just installed this Airaid intake on my 2010 four-door JK and was very pleased overall. The cold air intake included absolutely everything I needed for installation, right down to every nut and bolt partitioned in the hardware bag according to each step, which I thought was a nice touch. The provided metal panels replace the stock intake box and do a good job keeping the filter isolated from the hot engine compartment while having plenty of openings to let cold air from the outside in to the filter. Now as for the filter, I was torn between doing their oiled "SynthaFlow" or their non-oiled "SynthaMax." In the end I chose the dry filter because I mostly drive around town and didn't want the hassle of oiling the filter. It seems to be great so far. Overall I'm really impressed with the more aggressive sound and there's a noticeable increase in power down low, which is where these engines desperately need help! I've had several other brands of cold air intakes in the past, but this is my first Airaid system. It won't be my last!
There are lots of cold air intake systems for Jeep Wranglers out there, but after doing the research it seemed like this intake kit from Airaid was the best bang for the buck. It did not disappoint! Everything needed for installation was included and the instructions were very detailed. As a result, installation took me less than an hour and I'm not all that mechanically inclined. The cold air dam panels seem to do a good job keeping the filter away from hot underhood air while having plenty of spots for the filter to take in cool outside air. The new intake tube is also way better than the factory corrugated piece. I felt an improvement right away; a little better down low but really a big improvement from the midrange to about 4,000 rpm. I love the new growl under the hood as well. I was concerned that I might need a tune with this kit, but all the factory literature says it works with a stock tune, and no check engines lights so far after over three months. Oh, I went with the oiled SynthFlow version of their filter, and it works great. It definitely helped restore the power I lost when I installed 33s on the Jeep. This is a great addition or any TJ owner.
Great product, I used it in conjuction with the aFe throttle spacer. Nice growl above 1800-2000 rpm. More throttle response and torque. IMPORTANT: I almost busted the temperature sensor while removing it from the factory hose, even though I was very careful and followed directions. So I did this: Before you attempt to remove it, first remove the air intake hose from the throttle body. Pull the hose toward you a little bit,(it's rubber it will bend easily) without straining the wires too much,look inside where the sensor protrudes into the hose,and spray a very small bit of either WD-40 or white lithium grease where the plastic flange on the sensor touches the rubber grommett. This will make it very easy to pull out while twisting
While I only saw a 1 mpg bump, I saw a definite increase in pedal response. Plus it sounds tough under full acceleration! Still quiet under regular throttle though. I dig it!
Super easy to install even for a female. The screws however are a little on the wimpy side. Snapped one in half and didn't even have it tightened down all the way. Recommend either getting your own screws or be prepared to call the factory. Gives a nice little rumble when you step on it. All in all, very satisfied.
