Dabitz I believe you sent that PM to me. I also have a V6 and am looking to install a CAI as well. I live mostly around a populated area so I spend more time in the city than on back country roads and the highway. I gotta tell ya I would like just a little more hp from the ol' Commander. But honestly it wasn't until after I test drove it and started looking on this forum that I got the idea in my head that the V6 was underpowered. I mean I will be using it mostly to haul a canoe, kayak, or drums around + friends. But really the last vehicle I had was a Jeep Cherokee (God I loved that car), but it was time for change and more dependability. Although I will say that the commander is not as peppy as the cherokee, it makes up for it in spaciousness, smoother ride and niceties that the cherokee lacked. Also, I got it slightly used and saved about 10-12K on price and it was fully loaded, so the fact that it was a V6 did not cross my mind completely. Maybe I was being stupid. But I find most of the ones i see tend to be V6's and God knows i could care less to have a Hemi. If I wanted to haul something or be in race I would get a diesel truck or buy a sports car. The Jeep boxiness just stands out to me and that another reason I got it because it reminded me of an upgraded version of my cherokee, But I must say that if they still made the cherokee with the I-6 i would have gotten another. I would like to know how many others have V6's too.
I am hoping to make the CAI mod in a few months, and you know I almost thought about trading the commander back in towards another jeep, but I think I am going to give it some time and try to get used to the difference. Also, if the CAI mod does what so many on this forum claim that it does, then I know it will be worth it for a little better acceleration.
Sorry this is so long guys......
So AKFossil? Which one is better when it comes to acceleration the 77 or the aircharger 63 kit? I don't care as much for top end as I do lower end improvements. Any more suggestions?
