The kit includes the intake tube, filter, and mounting hardware. Installation takes one hour and requires basic tools to complete the process.
On the other hand, it could be argued that the small air intake of the stock system limits the motor's ability to breath freely, which could limit performance, perhaps...so we will assess the performance element of this upgrade later in this review.
Upside Down in the Dark Installation
The end result is this pretty silver pipe and exposed air filter in your engine bay. Your friends will all be amazed.
In regards to power, the Mopar Cold Air Intake website states "they [Cold Air Intake] provide noticeable horsepower and torque gains", which I have to disagree with. Even if this system provides an additional 5 horsepower, increasing stock engine power from 285 to 290 horsepower, that is a 1.75% increase, which is insignificant.
If you are looking an easy engine upgrade that will provide an audible performance improvement at 4,000 RPMs and you have extra cash to burn, this is the product for you.
If you are concerned about hydro lock, then maybe this is not for you. So, I will keep my original equipment air box on the garage shelf in case of an anticipated flood in Southern California.
