Air Box

I took the snorkel off the box and the drain from the bottom to increase the airflow.

1) start here


2) unclip and unhook the hoses


3) remove intake


4) Remove coolant overflow


5) you have to tqake the screw out here...

9) Here it is removed


Now put it all back together for a minimal increase!

What is the "cup" for? Some sort of rain protection for the engine?

Great instructions and photos.

Do you think that $30 is a good price for a drycharger for an intake kit? http://www.amazon.com/K-N-RF-1048DK-...2271415&sr=8-1

This is a drain for any water that comes in. But if you are going to open the air intake, need to be sure any water that comes in can get out, quickly.

That is why I want to buy this prefilter/drycharger. K&N claims that the drycharger will keep most water out of their CAI.

The configuration of the CAI that are on some Jeeps seem to be pretty protective against water entering into them. Most import car's CAI suck air by the bumpers. That is why K&N gives them a prefilter.

I heard that you will only need a prefilter if you are going off road or in a dusty environment. I do not plan on going off road, but I just want to be safe against water coming into my engine.

I do not have one, so I can not answer. but the price seems right.
Search the forum on the filters, I am sure there is more info.

That will be one of my future purchases........

So I took the plunge and delt with snorkle. I took the flap off and left the extension behind the grill on. Just used a dremel and buzzed off the plastic rivets. My only line of thought there was that it might direct a little more air sort of like "ram air" (don't worry I have no delusions that this is ram air). My only concern is water getting in from rain, but it seems most others who have done similar havn't had any problems.
