Where is the cool air coming from? I don't see any cutouts in the hood for this to draw on. It seems like it would still take hot, under the hood heat in.
The unit he is showing draws from the top, so I see no advantage except warm air. If you install a snorkel and connect to the CAI, now I may see some improvement.Well it's not really getting any cooler air than the stock intake--
The shape and purpose of the stock intake "LIPS", is to draw air from the gap between the hood/fender--the exact same as the JK jeeps--very dangerous/inefficient-
So that's ONE place the new JL has let us down !
I wish that VARARAM would research the 3.6L V6/Wrangler--
In my experience heat soak killed any benefit other than the kewl factor and maybe a better sound. This time around I think I'll just go with a K&N drop-in filter.
