Merideth: Hey, guys. So today we're checking out the Injen Evolution Cold Air Intake with the Dry Filter, fitting all 2020 and newer 3.6-liter Gladiator JTs. Now, if you've been noticing your truck has been a bit more sluggish after putting on larger wheels and tires or you're just not getting the efficiency that you want to out of your factory intake, a cold air intake will be a great solution to gain a little bit of horsepower torque in even miles per gallon. Now, this option by Injen will do just that by opening up airflow to your engine, giving you a Dino tested, 11 horsepower, and 11 pound-feet of torque increase giving you some better performance out of your JT while also improving the sound of your engine. Now, as Jeep owners, we don't really spend a lot of time in the higher RPM range where you would usually see those horsepower and torque gains, but you definitely will feel it in your throttle response, especially when you're getting on the highway.Now, this will feature a closed box or air box designed to keep your filter protected, which is something that I definitely recommend for the Jeep owner who lives in a wetter climate. Now, what I mean by saying that is that if off-roading to you looks like water fording or mudding, then this will be a better choice than a heat shield option. Not to mention, this is just gonna look a lot better than your standard air box with the Injen branding and the black textured design.Now, getting into the construction, the body of the intake will be similar to the stock one when it comes to the airbox design. But this is going to, again, open up a lot more airflow. The intake tube is not gonna have a resonator like the factory one, it's gonna be very straight through and it's going to be a little bit larger, which will increase that airflow that goes to your engine. Now, this will be made of a resilient rotomolded polyphyllin construction which will make sure that it's not absorbing any heat and, of course, that textured black material is going to make it look a lot better than your factory intake.Now, this will also incorporate Injen's super nano web dry conical filter, which will have very small nanofibers in the filter with small interfiber spaces. Now, just to break that down, this basically just means that you're getting a lot more filtration with less restriction in comparison to your factory filter material. Now, the filter will also be a dry filter, so this will require a little less maintenance when it comes to cleaning it, making sure that you can just clean it and pop it back in, in comparison to an oil filter that will require a little bit more. And this will be again, cleanable. So, it'll last the lifetime of the intake. Not to mention, this will require no tune in order to put this on your JT and will come with everything that you need, including stainless steel clamps, the silicone coupler, and you'll get a bracket in order to install it.Now, when it comes to pricing, you'll be looking at roughly $400, which is pretty average when it comes to a more premium intake. Now, other choices on the page that are a little bit less expensive than this option will usually be for those choices that have a heat shield that will be a little bit less protective than this option. Not to mention, some other choices may come with an oiled filter over a dry filter, which may not be your cup of tea because of the extra maintenance required, making this a better choice for you. Now, it does come down to your personal preference and your application for your Gladiator. But I personally think if you're looking for a high flow but protective intake that's gonna give you some solid Dino numbers and, of course, a good look under your hood, then this is gonna be a great choice.Now, when it comes to install, this will be straightforward at a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about an hour to get the job done with some pretty basic hand tools. Now, the tools that you'll need will include an eight and 10-millimeter socket and wrench, a ratchet, a set of Allen keys, and a flathead and Phillips head screwdriver. Now, one of our customers here has installed this on their Gladiator and is going to walk you through the process step by step. So, that's gonna wrap it up from my review. Let's go ahead and get into the install.Man: So, the first thing we're gonna do is disconnect the temperature sensor, pull back the harness from the intake tube, which is right here. So the intake sensor just pops out. It's got the sensor right there. There are these two clips that go into here. You can just easily take a screwdriver and pop those out. I've already done that, but I took a screwdriver and just popped those out. All right. The next step, you need to loosen these two bolts right here and get to pull them out. They come out really easily. And you won't be using them for the rest, so you just put those aside. You won't need these.All right. Now we're gonna take this screw out that's on the airbox. It's the only screw holding the airbox in. All right. Pull it out. And there's a grommet here. You wanna keep this grommet. You're gonna end up needing to use that for the install of the new one. Using an eight-millimeter drive, you can loosen this. That's gonna loosen the strap that's holding on the throttle body in and just pull it back and it'll come off. That's it right there. All right. So, the next step is disconnect the crankcase line from the intake tube. All you do is you press on this button right here and pull it straight off. It's very easy. All right. So, the next step now that everything is free, you're gonna remove the entire system out here and just work it up and the whole thing will come out. All right. Notice these little grommets. These were holding it down in these little holes down here. You can see these holes right here? Okay. You'll need to know those because that's where the new one slides into. It's important.All right. So, the next step you install this hump hose to the throttle body, nothing to it. Just make sure your clamp is right here. Slide this on. It slides on really easy. And then just tighten this up. You tighten it up with an eight-millimeter socket that worked out good. And she's good to go. All right. So, in the next step, we're gonna take this grommet that we pulled out from the airbox and we're gonna reuse it on this piece over here. So, the first thing I wanna show you is there's a metal insert. You can just pull that out and it'll make it a little easier to install. So, you pull that off of there. And now the next step is go ahead and put this now that you got the metal insert out, you can shove this in there a whole lot easier. And in theory, you have to get a little something to push it down in there and good to go. Now, see it's in there. Take this and you can drive it up through here and you're ready for the rest of the install on this piece. Now we're gonna install this onto this new airbox and it goes that way. These are M6 screws and they go in the machine pretty well. Doesn't take a lot of effort to get them in, just use the M6 Allen wrench to tighten them up. Tighten over here. Okay. Just tighten this up.Okay. The next thing to do is install the lock filter. It's pretty simple. Just drop it in there and turn it by a quarter turn and it'll lock. Boom. There it is. Locked in. All right. So, these little grommets are on the bottom side of the original airbox right there. These aren't mentioned in the instructions, but I found this to be a really nice extra piece because the way the grommets are made, they actually lock into the little hole in there where the grommets go and it keeps it from bouncing around. Now we go ahead and put the airbox into its position. Remember, you got two holes down there where these grommets go and they will. Once you get centered on them, you can push me in and they'll lock into place.And then you've got this screw here will push into place here. One of the things I figured out is it's a difficult...I got that turn good. So, that's a 10-millimeter, and just secure it. All right. They give you a rubber grommet, this just goes right in here. Just push it in there. I just finished this, so it was really easy. Just push just straight in. All right. So now we're gonna put the Injen tube in. This is very self-explanatory. Okay. You're gonna have two rings, one here, one here, let's stick that over. Stick it into that one. You'll be able to secure this with the eight-millimeter driver. And we'll tighten it all the way in till we get the other end in. And this other end's gonna have another eight-millimeter driver and this will fit onto the box and it goes right in there. Just like that. Take this all the way out to the edge. Use your eight-millimeter driver and tighten it down. And that's secure, and now secure this edge. Good to go. Good and tight.Okay. All right. So, we're gonna hook the hose back up to the crankcase fin tube. It literally just pops on the box. And this is the air temp sensor. Now, with this grommet that we inserted in here, all you do is give it a little bit of juice and it sits. And a little twist and back and forth and you get a good seal. And that's it. All right. And last thing, just make sure that all the nuts are secure. The two eight-millimeter is here and the10 mill there and we're good to go. And we're finished.Merideth: So, that is going to wrap it up for my review and the install of the Injen Evolution Cold Air Intake with the Dry Filter, fitting all 2020 and newer 3.6-liter Gladiator JTs.
