Volant
If the Volant comes with the PowerCore filter, I would go that route. The PowerCore filter is more efficient than the stock filter, lower differential pressure drop across the filter and uses nanofiber technology on the surface that minimizes depth loading of your filter. The filter itself also offers more area than the stocker. If you wheel it offroad alot, I would stay away from any of the K&N style systems as they are just not efficient enough.

BWAAHAMMWMAHAHHAAA ....oh dear, I think I wet myself.

Did he really say the K&N isn't efficient enough!?!?! Spoken like a true marketing pro - nano-shmano molecular BLAH BLAH BLAH!! You can do everything short of pumping air into the throttle body and you might get enough HP to pull a greasy string from a hog's @ss.

ALL AIR INTAKES ARE A WASTE ON JK'S !!!!

A simple search would probably yield a thousand threads to this extent.

I desert raced dirt bikes for 15 years and am on my 2nd jeep and second ATV and I have always used K&N in all of my cars,trucks and toys. More power (maybe 5 but you can't tell the difference but it sounds great when you punch it)) better milage 1/2 MPG.

The reason that I am writing this thread is to let people know that my K&N's have never let debri in the intakes of any my veichles ever and they have been thrashed in powder and sand and never have let me down.

I started using them because of there off road protection and I got tired of constantly changeing paper filters. Dirt bikes come with foam filters that restrict air and K&N is the first mod we make out here.

No, I do not work for K&N

im buying a volant powercore filter and fabing a custom cold air kit for my 97 cherokee. volant sells the powercore intake for 95-00 wrangler 4.0L but not xj 4.0. I have come to the conclusion that the powercore filters by volant are right now the best on the market.

op, i would go volant between the two you have listed, imho cai do not yield the results, more power and better mpg. the electronic controls are designed to compensate and keep close to or at stock settings. and the small gains you "may" get, will be at the top end, not off road or regular driving. some enjoy the sound, but it is still a 3.8.. there are better mods you will enjoy more than the cai. have you looked into regearing?
