Chris..... One thing on the CAI. Since we are talking Jeeps, please make sure your engineers are aware that some of actually use them as such and therefore, make sure that the CAI does not wind up in a place that will allow it to suck in water or reduce the Jeep's water fording capability. My truck will end up on the Mojave Road, if not next month, later in the fall and as I understand it, the first water crossing at Afton Canyon is currently close to 18" deep. Thanx

The other reason to use the quote and multi quote buttons is that can notifiy the other person that their post was replied to. Not sure if you know that or not.


We won't knock you too hard for the misspelling

Robert;

Lucky for me the guy doing the intake design is a die hard Jeeper. Our CAI will go in the same spot as the stock one. We our tooling one for the gasser Grands and it pulls cold air from the wheel well from an inlet at the top of the box. Unless your hood is underwater then I think you will be good. However, if your hood is underwater you may have some bigger issues or you are just having an S Ton of fun and you need to send some pics!!

The exhuast on the Grand looks awesome and the turbo response is amazingly better especially in gears 1-5. I mean you barley touch the throttle and bam that torque just comes alive. I am going to put the old man (that's what I call Gale) in it for a few days and see if he is ok with everything. If all goes well there will be a production ready exhuast on Diverb's jeep next week.

Now to finally get to your question and I apologize for the aside I am just really excited about this whole project. Next week the Jeep will head over to our race/engineering shop where the guys will digitize the engine bay. Once that is done they will design the CAI in CAD and have several design reviews etc. When everyone is happy including GB we will freeze the design and make a rapid prototype for fitment and flow bench testing. The stock one will get tested during this time as well. We will then run the protype on Diverb's and check it for sound, performace, codes etc. After everyone is happy with all of this and any changes/additions are made it will go to get tooled. Next come first articles, and if all goes well no changes to the tooling and we can start production. I am planning to do the same thing I did with the exhuast and send lots of photos to Diverb and he can post them for everyone. Along the way if anyone has questions I am always willing to do my best to answer them and if I can't I will get the question to someone that can.

Sorry for the long answer to the simple question but hopefully it was helpful.

Regards,
Chris
Hi Chris,

Is it possible to do before and after dyno runs so we can see what if any Power/Torque increases there are on each mod.

I know there will be increases but whether or not its worth the extra money.

I am watching this thread with great interest as we have sweet FA in the way of mods.

Cheers

I too am very interested in the things that are being tested. I have an overland diesel that I would like to mod anything I can that doesn't void warranty until it's up then maybe a tuner. Would love to spank a hemi with our 'slow' ecodiesel.

Thanks for the info Chris. I'll buy the intake the day it's available. Just do me a favor and don't let them put any effort into making the intake quiet.

Any plans on working a full exhaust? Not just dpf back? I know that will require some tuning and deleting, but would be great to see something in the long term. Stupid emissions!

Have been away from the forum for a few days, looks like there is steady progress and planning going on. The new y-pipe looks like a winner.

Sounds pretty cool how you go about designing the CAI.

I don't know about the feasibility of before and after dyno runs for every modification, sounds like a lot of dyno time, but I would also like to see numbers, particularly for any more serious mods, like turbo modifications, just to be sure there is some benefit.

Sounds like you have a great job Chris - I'm sure you see some amazing projects there.

Gale Banks improvements

Bump!

Will any of the mods void our warranty or is GB working with Chrysler/Jeep on them?

Removed mufflers today and did straight pipe and new tips.

Sounds the same and not sure on performance.

Maybe better or harder driving?

Hey Chris from Banks, do you guys have plans for PCV oil catch can for our Diesel Grand? This is sorely needed.

I was thinking of adapting an existing kit (either Hemi or Pentastar). However I rethought that, as I would think it is more complicated with forced induction and might need some sort if check valve because of positive pressure from the intake side?

Thanks- Eric

Admitting ignorance on this subject, can you please explain the issue, why it's sorely needed? I'm not getting any leaks I can see, but maybe it's an internal thing? You make it sound like an important issue, just want to understand. Thanks!
