CAI questions

Just purchased a 2007 Commander Overland. I would like to install a CAI system, however, I have a few questions;

1. K&N, Mopar, AEM or AirAid?
2. Pro's and Con's of these systems - quality, performance, ease of install, etc.
3. Best place to purchase from = lowest price, customer service

4. has anyone out there done a "real" comparision of the various systems?

Welcome to the forum, Type in "Cold air intake" in the search field and you will find all the info you could imagine.

I went wiht the AEM Brute Force and love it. I put it on as soon as I purchased the XK so I cannot compare to what the performace was before.

The sound when you get on it is amazing and well orth the money alone.

It took less then 30 minutes to install and they all will install in about the same style and time frame.

Lots of venders, check out the venders fourm for a list of the most popular ones, I think I purchased from autoanything.com

I have an Airaid system in my commander, It's VERY easy to install, works great, but I have not compared it to ather systems. I bought mine on E-Bay and found Airaid's customer support very helpful. They even sent me a new part, when I overtighend a hose clamp, with no questions asked.

IF you have time, call each customer service department and let them tell you why you should buy there product!

I have Mopar and have isolated the intake from engine temperature. doing this made it perform much better under high Texas temperatures. If I would get another one I would go for the AFE because it isolates the air intake filter from engine hot air.

It looks like the K&N is isolated from the engine compartment equally well ... just a different shield configuration.

This is mine...
