Cold Air Intakes

I have put one of these on every vehicle I have ever owned and liked them quite a bit. Who is running what brand on their TJ, Mine is the '05 and so far I think Airaid is the one for me. The '05 has an intake temp sensor in the intake tube and not all the manufacturers are including this on their products. Is a snorkel a viable option because I know I have covered the stock intake box with mud already?
Thanks

You won't see a performance gain.

I had the Airaid and it made no noticable differance in performance. It did make my engine run richer and caused increased carbon buildup on my exaust pipe. I am glad I switched back to the stock set-up.

I have heard that the aftermarket filters stand up to mud better and dont get clogged, but no performance gain and you gotta oil em. Anyone confirm the mud thing?

I have got the K&N FIPK and the power gains are minimal, the only thing noticeble throttle is a little more sensitive, highway driving is a little easier MAYBE

Can we let him read the posts that Superman posted? Let 's not start the fight again. He's just asking who has what installed.

I have the AEM. If I were doing it again, I would look for the one that gave me the most amount of gained space from removing the stock airbox.

Get the drop-in K&N and remove the air horn from the stock air box. You will gain the most by doing this. Nothing else hi dollar seems to work. Spend $40 on the K&N drop in and spend the rest of the $$$ on something you will actually enjoy and use.

Caution: Rock and a hard place just ahead.

According to most that will not help you either since the stock airbox provides more than enough air flow. It also makes you more vulnarable to taking water into your engine if do water crossings.
