I have had the K&N intake on my Jeep for the last 3+ years and love it. I clean it about every 2 oil changes with the K&N cleaning kit. Love the sound it gave the Jeep.

Don't want to hijack the thread but anyone know anything about that jeep with the muscle car exhaust? That sounded really good.

I agree it sounded GREAT...but that's not at all the sound I would expect from a WJ, or really any SUV or Jeep. Maybe a Cayenne Turbo S or an SRT-8..... but the WJ is just too pedestrian for that kind of exhaust, IMO.

As far as the K&N...do you notice any power increase or change in the sound of your Jeep? I want to do the intake as well when I do the exhaust.

YouTube - Kolak Exhaust Idle/Rev

YouTube - Kolak Exhaust on a WJ: Flowmaster 70 Series vs Super 40
Thanks for the heads up, I will check that out that kit. As for the K&N, yes I do notice a big difference in sound ONLY when I really floor it. It sounds the same it always did untill i really press the gas then the noise changes big time. The first time I heard it I was like DAAAAAM with a huge smile on my face. Sounds like a real American V8!!!!

amsoil prefilter AMSOIL - EaPF Pre-Filters

and the EaPF21 should work for you

K&N filter you have is:

Base Outside Diameter: 5.5 in (140 mm)
Flange Inside Diameter: 3.5 in (89 mm)
Flange Length: 1.25 in (32 mm)
Height: 8 in (203 mm)
Top Outside Diameter: 4 in (102 mm)


hope it helps, soon i am going to pick up that per filter and the bigger amsoil filter to replace my K&N one since i wont have to deal with a oiled filter .

hope it helps and nice jeep
That looks exactly like what I need, thank you very much!

And you have never had a problem with water or dirt? Off road yours much?
And no worries about Hi-jacking, that muscle car sound was awesome. I would consider it just be a bit different. So any info on that would be appreciated too.

The research was done a few months ago when that video first made it's way to the jeepforum. The guy had to lose the front drive shaft to make room for the TRUE dual exhaust, where he has 2 powersticks. Classic Chambered Exhaust Inc. - Products

Need HELP again. I am in he middle of doing the blend door fix. I got the first blend door out but i cant get the second one out (the one farthest away i think its the passenger side one) That door works any ways but id like to change it since i got 2 new ones ready to pop in. Do I just need to tug it out of there? Maybe its not coming out because that one isn't broken?

It should come out pretty easily. You may need to cut the 2nd panel (the divider panel) just a little bit more so that it comes out off of its axle/drive connector better.

No, never had problem with dirt or water. It's been great. I do my fair share. It's still a DD but when I find a road that looks fun, I try and take it.

Thanks for the info. The divider panel seems to be cut well enough but that second door still wont come out! Does it matter if the door is in the up or down position when you try to remove it? Since that door works, it can be up or down depending on the temperature setting and weather the car is on or off. I put the glove box back, will try again tomorrow. So i just pull on the thing right?

you have to cut the center wall out and make sure you get part of the grove that holds the doors in. and should pop right out
