Double Ditto...

On another note, works well and sounds badass on my 4.7L though!

Well I have a True Flow, seems to work well and give a good sound when you hit the loud pedal hard.

AKA... in your mind. I use to think my car felt faster after an oil change and a car wash.

Ditto again…. Also I have heard if you go into deep water the intake is a bad idea. I am thinking of replacing mine with a snorkel in the future. I don’t have much to worry about though, I live in a dry parched arid place called phoenix.

You mean it doesn't go faster? I swear mine does

I also have an Airaid intake and it definitely improves throttle response, and most probably picks up the performance a little. With a Magnaflow muffler, I really can't hear the intake, but the vehicle is pretty loud when you stand on the gas I've been asked a couple of times if there's a Hemi in it

I've ran through 42" of water without an issue, (well, apart from flooding the interior and trunk). I do run an Outerwears cover just to be on the safe side though. It won't help with total submersion, but will help prevent the stray splash or two.

Has anyone ever run the S&B intake? I was looking at either that or the AEM if I decide to go with a dry filter.

FWIW My intake air temp runs about 20°F hotter than the ambient air temp when on the freeway with the Airaid intake. Anything from 40-70°F hotter when around town.

Just installed the AEM kit. Based on MY butt dyno, there is a small difference. Running it in conjuction with a magnaflow exhaust (Cooltech kit) and it sounds and runs better than stock. Big differnce...NO! but enough to make me Definitely like exhaust a whole lot better than when I had the stock intake.

This would make a great justification for an AEV hood Now if I can just find someone to ship one to me for decent price to Hawaii

Before you order one check out A&A auto. I got mine there and it was cheaper than I could find online.

the reason I went with an airaid was the free throttle spacer they were giving away at the time.
another HP gimmick that doesn't work or makes such a small difference its pretty much nonexistent, but most of the intakes are pretty much the same design and same price so I went with the one that came with the $100 freebie.

i ended up with a AFE. 4wd was having a sale at the york jeep show and that was the only one they had there so i got it, its def loud and seems to give me a bit more power around the 2000-2500 rpm range so far, i think it helps i have a non-stock exhaust

Anyone running one of the aFe Sealed Air Intakes? The only reason I am considering it is that it uses the same intake as the stock box, so the filter is not exposed, and the filter does not use oil. Basically the benefit of a bigger filter that does not run with oil. Will it make any kind of difference? Will the extra air coming in mess with the sensor? I am a little hesitant to spend close to 300 bones if it is not going to be beneficial. BTW, my Jeep has a Flowmaster Delta 40 muffler.

I have the AEM works good. Knock it clean then blow it out with the compresser. I have the Magnaflow and can't hear the intake. Power gains are modest. Sounds good.

Although Ive not done an aftmkt intake on my JK yet, I have used some different ones in the past on a couple of TJs and on a Toyota Tacoma....K&N, AFE, and another one...cant remember the brand...They all made a "whistling" kinda noise, however that is normal. If you simply remove the factory filter and leave the cover off of the stock box... you can hear a similar "whistling" noise as well. Not suggesting that someone should actually drive a vehicle like that...but for kicks, w/ the vehicle at idle in the driveway, you can do that, and hear the additional air flow. *Repeat- DONT DRIVE IT LIKE THAT*...And if you do temporarily remove the lid and the filter, make sure that the intake tube isnt going to suck in any dirt or leaves (found in the bottom of the box).
