Hasn't died yet, been driving it since the install. Seems fairly responsive.

(It's a little louder than I'd like but in the end I think it was a nice mod. Just cleaned and oiled it about 3 weeks ago.
I will snap a pic of it this weekend and post on Tuesday when I get back to work...yes, work is the only place i surf JeepForum [/QUOTE]

I wrapped my wife's '98 5.9 with the "heat resistant" insulation around the tube
& used zipp locks to hold it in place, worked pretty good on cutting down the throttle
noise ! I tried using neopreme on my 5.7 Hemi, was still too loud so I removed
the tube & just used the K&N box & cone filter ! Blacklab

Just add some Borla XR Racing exhaust and you will eliminate the FIPK being too loud!

No problems at all.

Just did a weekend trip to Las Vegas and the HEMI is running smooth as ever. My gas mileage is terrible, probably since we cruise around 80 mph here in Southern CA.

If you do any thing under 80 MPH your getting run over in Cali. I've been doing 85 in a 65 and been passed, like a little old lady driving to church. Good thing for me though, I like driving a little fast. Only time I ever had any problems with the fuzz was when I was headed over Mt. Shasta doing 120MPH in my Dadís Camaro. No ticket (THANK GOD), it was just a warning and told me to slow it down.

In my Jeep I go 75 just becuase it is lifted big and I don't want to go faster. Michigan freeways are very fast as well. When I am in my mom's 05 outback I go 85-95...

You think that's bad, try GA 400 on your way into Atlanta from the 'burbs. They don't call it the GA 400 speedway for nothin'. I've been doing 85+ on that road and have been passed like I'm standing still. That, of course, is if it isn't rush hour! I have the 4.7, I can get 16 MPG at 1800 RPM, but that is a little too leisurely for down here. I usually get 12 MPG.

Any pics of the K&N in a 4.7 commander. I could use the extra umph when I tow our travel trailer. I have also heard that when installing the K&N it is prudent to install a new exhaust to handle the increased air-flow so you don't get any back pressure.

There's some pictures floating out there of the 4.7 K&N.

I had my gibson exhaust installed first, so I wasn't able to experience the stock vehicle with K&N alone added. But it's a good idea to balance intake and exhaust, like you mentioned, and also for more performance and efficiency.

Feels much stronger. I don't have accurate MPG, since I couldn't get the exact tire size calibration. Probably better anyway, I really don't need to see the true numbers...

I drive it. Put in gas... Drive it some more. repeat.
