So the question is how often do you guys reoil or recharge your after market intake? I've had mine for a few months and already have lost most of the color from when it was brand new. It's not drity at all, but i was wondering if I should go ahead and recharge it?????????

I`m pretty sure if it takes the K&N type red spray oil, the filter needs to remain red. no red = no oil.

Yea I am curious what others think about the different brands too. I have been leaning towards a Banks intake.

I have the AirAid intake system on my 4 banger TJ. Love the sound and clean look it has under the hood. I didnt notice much improvement as far as power, but i did add the throttle spacer. My wife has the 6 banger and you really notice the power and response when we put the AirAid on hers. Havent had to recharge it yet.

i have the air raid CAI on mine and have been really happy with the extra power and i has a great sound when you get on the gas but isn't too loud that you notice during normal driving.

PostSubject: any mpg improvement?   Sun 26 Dec 2010, 7:21 pm

Anyone notice any improvement in MPG with one of these? Drove to Dallas on Christmas pulling my light 600lb kayak trailer into the 20 mph headwind and got about 13 MPG (ouch!). With gas prices creeping up again, curious as to how these intakes (or other mods) might improve my stock-so-far JK.

thanks

per the dash computer i have noticed an mpg increase on the freeway but not so much in town. if its not too windy the computer reads as high as 21, just not sure how exact that is but the most it ever read before was just shy of 19 which the sticker said.
