cold air intake

I am in the market for a cold air intake for my GC ltd. Just looking for some input from board members on what one's work better than others. I have a 2000 GC with 4.7L. I also have a Magnaflow cat back exhaust installed.

I have the 5.2, but I recently put on a AEM brute force, with a heat sheild and it added a noticable amount of power, and the sound is very addicting. I think as long as you get a nice one with a good heat sheild you will notice a big difference over just sticking a cone filter in there.

I bought a K&N setup from Kolak. It has better throttle response, but I don’t feel any power difference. It also sounds bad ***! My MPG when down after I put it on, but that’s sauce I kept putting my foot into it to hear it . There is one thing im really worried about. I took my filter off a few days ago changing out my sparkplugs and I noticed that there was dust in the tube!!! I followed the K&N instructions to the letter but I still got dust in there. So I’m going to look for a thicker filter or something else.

That's strange, Max. I just have a cheap Ebay cone filter that works the same as the K&N, oil on cotton gauze, and it works fine. I haven't had issues with dust in the tube. I know that Amsoil has a dry filter that might work for your application. It's like $80 though.
Yes, it snows in Texas.

I have a K&N for 2 years now and love it. I have a 99 WJ with the 4.7 and it works really well. I think it gave it a deeper throat. I've been waiting to buy a Magnaflow exhaust but have yet to do so.
