#1 of 3 Intake system for 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Mar 07, 2008 (6:01 pm)
I am trying to find an performance intake tube for the 4.0L engine. It seems that they only have it for the 4.7L. I looked at full CAI systems like the K&N FIPK but am woried about hydrolock (I do a lot of offroading). Any suggestions?

Rusty's Off-Road (www.rustysoffroad.com) has an intake tube available for the 4.0 WJ. Last time I looked, you got the air tube for somewhere around $80-$90, and then you purchased the filter of your choice. I know that he offers at least 2 different sizes of K&N cone filters, but I recommend the Tru-Flow foam filter. It flows better AND filters better. I was going to purchase one from them, but I had a neighbor trying to sale a BBK Motorsports cold air induction system for the '99-up Mustang GT that I bought for $50 (filter with stainless plumbing). After a couple of modifications it became a '00 Grand Cherokee cold air induction system. I've had no problems whatsoever and can definitely feel the difference! It also adds a nice throaty growl to it when you really get on it. Anyway, give Rusty's a look and see what you think. If I remember correctly, the 90-degree elbow that fits over the throttle body is a silicone coupler which is much better than rubber.

It's a great price, but are you sure it wouldn't cause hydrolock? All that I am really looking for is something that connects to the stock air box and replaces the stock breather hose which has the restrictive resonator on it. I'll think about it though.
By the way, great website
