Since the forum law states I am not allowed to promote my company or products, I will keep it personal. (I) am designing a CAI for the 3.7L commander. It has 3" polished aluminum tubing, washable filter and a powder coated intake box to seperate the filter compartment from the engine bay. I'm expecting this to look and perform better than the K&N, and cost less!
Does anyone have any other input or suggestions? I will post some pictures as it all comes together. :)

I'm interested as well......Are you going to do dyno runs to show any increases this set-up will give?

Dyno

There will only be a dyno run if there happens to be a large demand for this item. I will post milage increases, and air inlet temperature data compared to engine compartment temperature. Next week I should have some pictures.
Thanks!

good luck on any decent gains...

I haven't seen the V6 in a while if its anything like the V8 as far as the MAF and Throttle body placement be concerned in avoiding the protruding ac bolts and other things in the way from running a smooth tube...(see my pics for what I mean). But Good Luck!

...You could wrap the intake tube in insulation to keep the aluminum from transferring heat.

tricky

On the OEM intake, there is a temp sensor and its not a standard round hole. The sensor requires a special hole to mount inside shaped like the milky way galaxy. Of course they couldn't use a standard hole. This is my first obsticle.

supplies

I found all the supplies I will need. The other manufactures use a seal on the box that seals the hood when you close it. I found this seal is probably made by Trim Lok and its more expensive than I thought. Hopefully after this weekend I will have some pictures of the progress.
