Hey. It's your jeep. And what everyone else says is only advice. Do what you want. Everyone always asks me when I'm putting my bumpers back on.

92 xj on 235/75/15's. $2000 into a $400 dollar jeep.

I dont like that things like this are called "cold air intakes". They should be instead called "taking a little bit of hot air fromundathehood, to its now takingalottahotairfromundathehood" intake system

Ever seen the DIY cowl intake that puts the filter in the wiper tray and runs a pipe back to the TB?

Do you consider that a Cold Air Intake?

I agree that throwing a cone filter under the hood should be called a "Hot Air Intake".

Yes, I do consider that a true cold air intake. I have the DIY cowl intake on my TJ. The undergoes temp of my jeep runs anywhere from 140-160 deg so the air going into the factory air box was the same as that. With the cowl air intake, the air going in is now 59-65deg. Even on an 85deg day, the air going in is averaging 60deg.
Did it add HP? Doubtful. But it did create a more efficient engine that seems to run a few deg cooler. My mpg DID increase on average 1mpg.

I also moved my IAT sensor from the top of the intake manifold to the cold air tube. This tricks the computer into increasing the fuel/air mixture since it thinks its getting more air with the cooler air.
The jeep accelerates much better at WOT.

So you also have an air cooler built in to your cowl intake? It seems to me that the coolest air you could possibly suck in would be the same as the ambient air temp.

Edit: having recently installed my cowl intake and actually measuring my intake temperatures with a scan tool, I can tell you that the lowest intake temperatures you will see are 20-30* ABOVE the ambient air temperature.

How did you arrive at 60*?

Fast!!!

The best and easiest way to improve any vehicles power and MPG is to buy a K&N Air filter, Open the box, take out the instructions, find the sticker, peel the back off, stick in on your windshield, and throw the filter away.

Adding the sticker automatically adds 100 HP and instantly gives you 100 MPG!! Its facebook official...so it MUST be true.

I thought you were going to actually suggest using the K&N filter.

Can't believe I actually read this thread from beginning to end. I just wasted at least an hour of my life.
