Cold air or other air box solution

I am wondering if there are any good cold air induction setups for the Jeeps. What was done by the PO doesn’t seem like a good setup.

It looks like he just to the stock air box off and just slapped a filter on there. It doesn’t make sense to me to put it there where’s it sucking in all that hot air from the engine bay When cooler air is more desirable. It’s a ‘97 wrangler sport with the 4.0L. Any and all positive input would be greatly appreciated.

The stock air box works best.

I like the windstar cowl induction setup but you have to cut a 3" hole in the firewall.

note, it was done to free up space for highline fenders and gained zero performance.

I did a similar setup when I had the 4.0 to gain space where the stock airbox was. I used an AEM filter. No performance gains received or expected though. In warm weather environments I would not recommend it.

Is that a air horn where the stock air box goes?

If you read enough, many say there is no gain from cold air, or any other intake other than stock.

daveysjeeps.com is a good source for used parts. Below is an example.

Stay with the OE factory air intake system. There's no benefit to a CAI and a big drawback.... they let more damaging fine dirt/dust/particulates in the engine.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

After reading the input from others I plan on finding an oem air box to replace the diy unit that the PO made.
