Ok, someone please sort me out once and for all on cold air intakes PLEEEEAASE. Sorry for the pun, but is it all a bunch of hot air?..i mean, if the intake is in the engine bay, and open, unlike the exisitng filter in my Overland which is at least in a plastic box, how can it be a cold air intake? take these examples...advertised as a cold air intakes:
Mopar - Performance - Trail - Cold Air Intake Systems
Jeep Grand Cherokee K&N 57 Generation II Cold Air Intake - 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee - K&N K335715131
surely, they are HOTAIR INTAKES...I mean, theres no cold air under the hood of my Overland !!!..at least this one, doesnt use the term "cold air"....but is called a "performance intake":
57-1513-1 - K&N 57 Series FIPK, Performance Intake Kit
Arent they the same product?
So, is it all hot air? I've seen v8 jeep drivers on the internet listing cold air as one of their mods.......and if it is as i suspect all hot air, does the performance intake actually improve performance?
