Installed Dub Air CAI
Installation was straightforward (a 20-30 minute job tops) and the components in the kit are of high quality. Aside from me snapping the male end of the IAT sensor in half--fwiw, you can't order them from NAPA or AA only from a Jeep/Chrysler dealer--it was a piece of cake.
As others have already stated there is definitely a louder and deeper induction sound than with the rubber OEM inlet, the tone is now quite raspy when you're at anything over 1/3 throttle.
Two things I'm considering doing are having the SS pipe ceramic coated, and switching to a bigmouth filter. The former would be more for the hell of it since it won't cost me anything, though the SS portion does get quite hot after extended idling. The later because there's only so much room for a filter to fit in the stock air box, or one like the DUB CAI that follows its design. However the filter shouldn't be smaller than what you would find in a Ford 4.6L CAI kit--UPR or JLT for instance. Anyway, I think I can cram in a slightly longer filter with even more surface area gained from the open end.
When I hit 3000 miles I'll do a same session, back to back comparison on my local AWD dyno to see what if any tangible gains I just bought.
A quick favor to ask someone. Please look at your IAT sensor, there will be two sets of numbers, one on each "long" side of the plastic. Which number is facing the filter, and which is facing the driver's side of the plug?
