Finally, Hemi with Snorkel installed

Well almost. I have the snorkel coming next week but I got the AEV Hemi
snorkel kit installed. Like their Hemi swap kit the snorkel kit is awesome.
Everything fits and looks like it came that way from the factory.
For the 5.7 the snorkel box kit comes with the brackets for the stock bottom
part of the air box. You need to reuse the rubber grommets from the stock
battery / airbox tray that the post on the bottom of the airbox go into,
so don’t pitch those if your doing a hemi swap.
The kit also comes with a permanent K&N air filter that fits into the stock airbox.
The last and most important part, The new airbox lid designed for the AEV hemi kit.
With the 5.7 Hemi you also have to purchase a ERG block off kit that is pretty much
self explanatory.
One of the nice things about this snorkel kit is it makes access to the Alternator and
the lower radiator hose very easy. Pop the box out and everything is wide open now.

I Love AEV's build quality.. it all looks factory.


Is the AEV Hemi snorkel the same as the standard one? and just uses a different top to the air box?

no jeep here...

Finished the install right before I had to leave for work so have not really been able to beat on it too much but so far the only difference seems to be a little less noise from up front. I'm happy with it.

Why does the alternator pully look like it sits back a little further than the rest causing that belt to run a lil cock eyed??

Must be a optical illusion because its running true

What if you just left it like that?

Doug,

I know that you are finishing this off with the snorkel, but I am interested in the setup as you have it now to essentially create a cold air intake. Do you have the AEV hood? If you were to close the hood, would the intake chute on that new box snug up to the little grill on the AEV hood?

I am trying to get my air intake temps down, and don't feel the current setup creates much isolation between the engine compartment and the intake air box....I am trying to figure out a way to suck air from the outside, and your setup as it sits now looks like it might be the ticket????

thats in interesting concept... any of the guys with the heat reduction hood could shed some light on that since the lower end of the airbox in the original peice. just on what i saw, it looks like it would help some. i wonder though, if there is an air pressure or "scavenging" (vacuum) from that area at road speed... if you follow my meaning...

Good deal, probably just the angle of the camera. Nice rig.

Yes everything else is the same.

I think even if I was not going to add the snorkel I would still want to run the stock box like it is now. I think it provides a little more water protection than the open K&N cone filter that I was running and does not seem to hurt performance at all.

The intake does not snug up to the grill on the hood but I'm sure the AEV hood allows more cooling under the hood. My wife always complained about how hot it was around her feet when we were driving then one day not long after I put the AEV hood on she said "hey you fixed what ever was putting out all that heat down by my feet". When I told her it was due to the new hood she said "well its worth it then". My insurance co. picked up most of the tab on the hood after I smoked a deer on the way to work one morning

Looks great. I like the filter top rather than the "Ram Air" top.

I'm about to do the same to my Jeep. Did the kit from AEV come with everything you need, or did you have to buy anything seperately? Since AEV did the Hemi swap for me, they will replace that now missing stock lower airbox (for $40!)

BTW, while I may eventually use the fording capability, the real reason I'm doing the snorkle is to lower intake air temp when its baking outside and the sand is well beyond tolerable to sare feet.

I pretty much did it for the same reason. Not planning on playing submariner, but I will feel better in those "oh shit, that's deeper than I thought" moments.
I've got too much time and money invested to take the chance on hydro locking, or telling my wife its time to start walking out of the boonies.
Also the pre-filter does work great. I'm surprised how much crap has been caught in the bowl rather than the air filter so far.
I still had my lower box so I did not need to buy anything else that was needed but not in the kit. I really like the AEV kit. Its a very clean looking easy install. No cutting into the body or having to relocate anything. I would talk to them again about the extra $40. That does not seem right.

You get what you pay for. AEV stuff is not cheap, quality usually is not.

That is exactly what I have been doing for almost 2 years. While I was in Germany on a business trip I saw the diesel version....picture below. I bought about 10 of the foam pieces in that picture and brought them back to the states. It mounted up perfectly to my stock airbox and now the foam causes the engine to draw the air from the cut-out in the AEV hood. ........... no issues after 2 years of use.

Found the part number.... part number is 153034131AB
