    Intake. Made from mandrel formed plastic, the Airaid Cold Air Dam intake tube is designed to flow considerably more air than a stock intake tube. And it's been powder coated inside and out, to ensure smooth, turbulent-free airflow.

    Superior Filtration. This Cold Air Intake provides superior air filtration, since it includes an Airaid Premium Filter with SynthaFlow® technology. SynthaFlow® is a cotton gauze and non-woven synthetic nano-fiber material that traps the smallest dirt particles that ordinary cotton-gauze "performance" filters just can't capture. Airaid Premium Filters, with SynthaFlow® can capture particulates down to 2 microns in size. This filter is re-usable, which means there is no need to buy a filter every time its dirty. Simply wash and re-oil the filter and you're back in business.

    CARB Certified. Best of all, the Airaid Intake is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO # D-609-18.

    Additional Features. The Airaid Cold Air Dam combines the latest in high-volume air delivery, with the proven, hassle-free factory air ducting system. A high-flow cotton gauze filter element is located directly over the air passages, which feeds a steady flow of cold air to the engine. This filter placement also keeps out excess dirt and moisture. Plus, the heat shield keeps out engine heat, and seals to the underside of your hood for maximum protection.

    Application. This Airaid Cold Air Dam Intake with a SynthaFlow Oiled Filter is specifically designed to fit on all 1997 - 2002 Wrangler TJs with the 2.5L engine.

            Great Intake

            This intake is really a nice piece. The fit and finish are top-notch and you can tell you are getting a quality piece. As far as performance gain you will mostly notice the noise of the intake (which sounds great) and the throttle response is much better. The only issue I had was with connecting the rubber seal around the intake pipe and the filter. It was an extremely tight fit and took a bit of work to get on. If you run into this issue I Recommend a hairdryer or heat gun to loosen it up a little and some water to help slide it over. It also came with very detailed instructions in case installing an intake is new to you.

            Best purchase!

            Wasn’t sure how well this was going to work but this honestly gave my noticeable horsepower! I tried adding spacer and an exhaust for additional hp but nothing worked as well as this CAI.

            Great product

            First off some of the hardware I got didn't fit so I had to make modifications to install it and for it to fit. It was a super tight fit on My 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ 4 cylinder 2.5L. but I installed a rough country throttle body spacer along with the Airaid and my jeep runs more better then before and has alil bit more horsepower then before. Would recommend this product.

            Easy to install - adds some zip

            Took under an hour to install - fits great - added some needed HP and acceleration for the little four-banger. Also gives a much deeper sound during acceleration

            Huge difference in power

            First of all, it does not fit at all with MetalCloak fenders. If you own some you will definitely have to do some cutting and drilling. But, when I put this bad boy under the hood along with a throttle body spacer... man oh man I felt like I was driving a whole new Jeep. It gave my little 4-banger so much more torque and horsepower. I use to only be able to peel out on wet surfaces and get 0-60 in about 30 seconds, now I can peel out beautifully on dry pavements (with mud tires) and get 0-60 in 14 seconds. It also sounds AMAZING at higher RPMs!

            Cold air

            It was for the most part easy to instal. It was a tight fit. Sounds great! Gave me about .5 mpg better but atleast it sounds good!

            a little performance for us 4 cylinders

            Bought the cold air intake to try to make any kind of performance mods I can. I can tell a difference. Breathes better and more power on the highways and not a bad price plus sounds good. Next is putting a 4.0 throttle body in my 2.5 along with a spacer to have even better air flow and more power. Definitely recommend if you need any more gains in your jeep

            Great Upgrade

            This intake is the best thing I have done to my jeep yet. It has definitely increased the power and torque. It sounds amazing at high RPM. It should decrease fuel consumption, but it is hard to keep your foot off the pedal with this on. It had a little bit of a tight fit, but it wasn't to hard to put on. I definitely recommend this product.

            Power gain

            I definitely noticed a power increase when I added the cold air intake to my 4cyl tj. Installation wasn't to hard but it is a very tight fit. The air intake sounds great to when accelerating.
