Sorry it took so long to get these up. I've been lazy. Not all of the pictures I took during the install came out very well. I'm not very good with a camera. So, these are the good ones that came out ok. Not sure why they don't show up instead of links. It worked ok when I used the test section of the forum. Maybe Gramps can format it correctly.


Stock / OEM




Stock Airbox Removed




Fully Installed Pictures










...and just because...

Good pictures. I think you left out one clamp -across the metal cradle. I reminded pilzny of the same thing when I saw his pictures. Look at installation instruction sheet pictures #30 and 31. Probably not vitally important, but hey...
Cheers

Sure do like the Hemi Orange engine cover (looks that color in the first pic). I think I want some louvers on the driver side of the hood too.

Thanks After I did the brake calipers I had some leftover and thought the engine cover would be the ideal way to set off the engine bay. Definetly looks like hemi orange to me. I didn't expect it to look that way when I bought the paint, but thats how it came out.

Going to go back and reread the instructions noted above as well. Thanks for letting me know about it.

This looks like it would be worth looking into. I am really not mechanically inclined and I am worried about messing up my sensor. Is this install pretty much fool proof?

I would like to know how much taller the K&N unit stands compared to the original air box. I am currently awaiting an OEM Strut Tower Brace and wonder if there will be interference between the two upgrades. From the pictures, which are stunning with the painted engine cover and calipers, the heat shield looks like it might be an issue. Hard to tell.

Could someone make an estimate for me please?

I emailed K&N and asked them if the Compass cold air intake was legal in Texas. This was their reply:

"Dear K&N Valued Customer,

Thank you for your interest in K&N products. We only test for and get certification for California emissions. You will need to check with your local smog station, state office, or department of vehicles to see if the kit is street legal or not.



Thank you for choosing K&N,

wow no more update on if this will fit the patriot!! well I'm pretty sure the AEM one for the caliber fits the Patriot, but i think it puts the filter in a different location.

Pretty much the only way to go. One without the other does not make sense to me. I have installed the performance exhaust systems (both Magnaflow and Flowmaster) with the K&N cold air intakes on many different vehicles over the years and it does work. You will see increased performance and better fuel economy but some folks may not think it's worh the extra money spent.

Ex: 06 Mustang 4.0L V6, installed Magnaflow dual stainless steel exhaust system, K&N cold air intake and micro tuned with Superchips hand held programmer. Total spent was $1600.00 for an increase of 1.8 mpg and a ton of HP. I programmed it for 93 octane fuel and loved it. The 5 speed manual transmission didn't hurt anything either. lol

I will be doing this again with my 08 Liberty as soon as the goodies are made available for this model.

It just seems pretty costly if you can get an improvement with the filter-only change..
The slip in air filter (K&N) is not the same thing at all as the cold air intake system. But with either you still need the performance exhaust in order to make a difference.

It is 100% street legal in Texas. I went through all of that many years ago and to date nothing has changed. Remeber that you are not eliminating any emissions equipment at all.

This was a good post to find - I'm getting my new MK Rallye tomorrow night and I will be looking at adding this to the vehicle in the near future.
