Cold Air Intake

Any suggestions on the best cold air intakes out there? Pics and sites would be great.

Guaranteed........ leave stock.......add a flat K&N and modify the front snorkel. This weekend we found the DUB actually LOST 10hp......and that was back to back dyno runs for each one.

I will guarantee you you will run lower IAT #'s with the stock system.......like 40-50 degrees difference!

40-50 degrees... my IAT is normally only about 1-4 degrees warmer than the air out side when im moving, even if im only going 15-20mph

I have the gs CAI. im not a big fan of there quality, but i do like the k&n filter it came with, and it sounds great...

Re: Cold Air Intake

Just installed the Volant last night. Great quality. Not as blingy as others I have seen. Huge filter, sounds great, and the Butt Dyno said there was a very little gain.

Hmmm - I am not liking the sound of this. Can you give more info on how it is possible to lose hp by adding the DUB? I am not keen on going slower.

I think you would be very happy with a Volant.

I have 1 Volant left in stock. The price is $295 shipped in the 48 continental United States.

Volant Cool-Air Intake: 2006-07 JEEP Grand Cherokee SRT-8

Thanks!

I would imagine because of the chrome tube and box. I'm guessing it retains a lot of heat over the stock plastic housing and rubber tube.
