what i did here seein as i own an older RENIX 4.0L (no one makes **** for these engines so ya gotta do it your self)

any way i took a piece of 3" stainless exhaust pipe in a 12" length cut the needed holes for the hses from the airbox i brazzed on the needed fittings and went out and got the biggest K&N filter they had(6X9K&N w/3" mouth) slapped it all together and tossed that crappy old restrictive airbox and havent had a regret

Pros: More power I think, and my jeep is a little louder
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Cold air intakes are expensive and this is a third of the price. I hated the blow by in the stock intake and now I never have to deal with that again. Also I never need to buy a new filter because you can wash it. The iceing on the cake was how easy and quick it is.

Pros: sounds good, easy install, looks good
Cons: could probably use a better filter
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got my air intake from ebay it was cheap and gives the Jeep a good sound; it may not be a K&N but it still does its job. Would recommend changing the air filter with a quality one.

Price: $80.00
Pros: ORIGINAL POST: Inexpensive modification that increased mileage and hp. UPDATE: Only increased mileage at high RPM; lowered mileage around town.
Cons: ORIGINAL POST: Won't see full potential without an exhaust modification. UPDATE: bad filtration, found fine silt inside cone/stainless
Recommended? No

Comments: ORIGINAL POST: Polished stainless, open ended dry cone filter, water resistant dust cover. Found most of the parts on eBay. Half of the cost was the pre-filter

UPDATE: Gained (recovered) nearly 3mpg around town, lost 1mpg at 65mph since going back to the stock airbox with AC Delco air filter installed.

Pros: more power and better gas mileage
Cons: isn's the best looking
Recommended? Yes

Comments: You can get it at any local shop and it is very affordable! 50$ bucks will cover the cost and a lil time.
The way I have mine mounted is a lil tacky, but hell! It works.
The performance gain is noticable enough to have fun with too. Bore out your throttle body for best results.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: Finished my cold air intake with heat shield and installed it. The difference..... WOW!!!! It has a lot more throttle response over the whole power band. It will now break the tires loose from a dead stop. The exhaust note is deeper and more aggressive sounding. Oh and there is a nice whir sound every time I give it some gas! Also I gained about 3.5 mpg by doing this. My average before was 16.7 and on the same trip with the same weight and amount of fuel and cruising at the same speed I was averaging 20.2 mpg. Not bad for a v8 with the np249.
