      Video Review & Installation

      I'm Ryan from, and this is my review and installation of the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake, fitting all 2012 and up JKs with the 3.6 liter engine. There are two different versions of this kit available, one with the Synthamax Air Filter in either red or blue, and one with Airaid's Premium Air Filter. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this cold air intake, which I'm gonna give a two out of three wrenches because there is some cutting of the factory air box involved to get this installed. We're also gonna talk through the construction and a few of the features of this system.Any time you help your engine to breathe easier, either in or out, you are theoretically going to see some horsepower and torque gains. However, with a Jeep, most of those gains are going to be at the very top of the RPM range where we don't spend a ton of our time. So what I would expect from a cold air intake like this is a little better throttle response, some more noise from underneath the hood, and possibly a few miles per gallon increase. You may feel a little bit of a power increase, but again, that is going to be more at the top of the RPM range. I do like this system because it has a completely enclosed air box, and what that is designed to do is get the coldest, freshest air possible for an air box that's still going to be under the hood, where it's generally warmer than outside of the Jeep. This also does come with a couple of different choices for air filters, so, again, the Synthamax filter that has a little less cotton gauze in it and is designed to be a better filter, filtering out more particulate, or the slightly less expensive Premium Air Filter that does have a little bit of the cotton gauze in it.As far as pricing goes, for an enclosed air box cold air intake, this is right where I would expect it to be, and it's in line with some of the other brands that we have available. As you can see, this cold air intake comes in a couple of different pieces, and like I said, one of those is the fully-enclosed air box. And what an air box like this is designed to do, is draw the coldest possible air into the engine for a box that is still in the engine bay. And I say that because you're still going to be drawing air that's underneath the hood that has been warmed up from the engine giving off heat. The only way to get truly cold, fresh air into the engine would be a snorkel or something like a ram air setup that is available on the site. However, this is going to do a nice job of drawing colder air and getting more air into the engine than that factory system would. Aside from the enclosed box, you, of course, have your cold air intake tubing and filter.And as I mentioned before, there are a couple of filter choices available. The Synthamax filter from Airaid is a little more expensive than their Premium filter, and it has less cotton gauze in it, and it is designed to filter out even smaller particulate. But if you wanna save a little bit of money, or you're not as concerned about the filtration qualities, you can go with the Premium filter, still a great filter, just has a little bit more of the cotton gauze inside of it. This system is designed to be mostly bolt-in. You don't have to cut the Jeep, but you do have to cut up your factory air box, you're going to remove the factory air scoop and put it onto this air box. And part of the reason that you have to do that is because this is a 50-state legal system, so it can be used in California. So there are a couple more restrictions that need to be taken into account. As I said before, I am going to call this a two out of three wrench installation. Generally, a cold air intake, especially one that is not an enclosed air box like this one is, is a very, very simple install. This is going to be a little bit more difficult, and we're calling it a two outta three wrenches because of the cutting you have to do on your factory air box to remove that factory a

      Enhanced Performance. The AIRAID MXP Cold Air Intake System replaces the standard air filter and the entire air path to the Jeep Wrangler JK's engine to improve the air flow and thereby the horsepower of the engine. With a molded airbox that isolates the air filter from the engine heat and strategically placed air inlets that allow cool air into the box, it ensures better combustion, fuel efficiency, lower exhaust gas temperature, and engine output.

      Superior Filtration. Each Airaid Cold Air Intake provides superior air filtration, since it includes a 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.

      Unique Air Box Design. This Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake features a specially designed one-piece roto-molded intake box that draws cooler outside air from the factory cold air duct while the unique shape improves airflow around the entire filter.

      CARB Certified. Best of all, this Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-609-19.

      Application. The Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for the 2012-2018 Wrangler JKs with the 3.6L Engine.
