      Video Review & Installation

      Merideth: If you're in search of some better performance for your 3.6-liter, this K&N Series 77 High Flow Performance Cold Air Intake will be a great addition to your 2018 or newer JL Wrangler. Now, this intake will do a great job at getting rid of the restriction that your factory airbox offered replacing it with a high flow setup that will help your engine breathe a lot better. Now by increasing the airflow, you'll be getting better horsepower and torque and even some better efficiency. Now, when it comes to the horsepower increase, you will see those gains in the higher RPM ranges where we don't spend a whole lot of time but you definitely will feel a little bit of extra throttle response, especially when you're hitting the gas like getting on the highway. Not to mention, this is going to add just a very sporty look underneath the hood for whenever you access your engine bay.This kit will come with a high-quality oil filter that will trap all of the contaminants before getting it into the intake system and will be reusable for the lifetime of your Wrangler. Now, this specific kit will also have a heatshield application to prevent any hot and humid air from getting into the filter, but if you do offroad in a wetter climate where you're doing a little bit of mudding or come into contact with any open water often, I would just keep in mind that this is not going to be as protected as a factory airbox or closed box system. And nonetheless, this will do a great job at creating some better performance and also giving a pretty sporty look underneath the hood with the polished intake tube. Now, this will be made of an aluminum material and it's going to have a factory-like fit. This kit will also come with everything that you need in order to install it on your JL including all of the seals, clams, and hardware and it doesn't require a tune in order to be installed making it very straightforward.Getting into price. This will come in at roughly $500 for the kit, putting this at a pretty average price point for a high-quality intake system. Now other options on the page may come in different configurations as well as a different style when it comes to the components that will change up the performance or looks slightly. Now, for example, some other options may have a dry filter instead of an oiled filter, and not to mention, there's also just other options that'll come without the heatshield, with an airbox design, or will have a different colored intake tube in comparison to this polished one. Now, in my opinion, I think if you're looking for a premium choice for a very high flow cold air intake that's going to look good while also performing well, then this is going to be a great kit.Like I mentioned before, this install will be pretty straightforward, add a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter taking you about an hour or so to get the job done with some pretty basic hand tools. Now one of our customers here is going to walk you through that process step by step. So that is going to wrap it up for my review. Let's go ahead and get into the install.Man: For this install, tools used. It's a three-eighths ratchet, a medium extender, a 10-millimeter socket, 13-millimeter socket. I also used a quarter-inch ratchet, an 8-millimeter socket, and a small extension. I did use an extendable magnet because I dropped a bolt. A couple of different prybars. These are nylon prybars. They're not gonna hurt the body if you happen to slip with them. Flat-bladed screwdriver. You need the crescent wrench because it's easy. Four-millimeter Allen wrench. Needle nose pliers and standard pliers. Some of the tools used were a preference. But those are what I used to install it. Good luck with your installation and happy jeeping.I do install the intake, cold air intake for the K&N, cold air intake on a 2022 Jeep Wrangler. What you wanna do is you wanna disconnect this wire from the stock air cleaner. There's a clip here. Push them together. You can use pliers if need be. And pull it straight out, get it out of your way. The second thing you wanna do is remove these clips that anchor these wires and this overflow hose to the air cleaner. Get your prybar. You can push up from the bottom of the clamp or the clip to get you a little bit extra room. Pull. Second one. Same as before. Hook underneath your finger, pull it up. Pops out. Get it out of the way. The other one's on the back side here. Same process. Underneath. And then pull it out, move it out of the way. It's disconnected.Here's where we wanna disconnect the air cleaner from the throttle body. You can use a slotted screwdriver or you can use an eight-millimeter socket. I'm going to use a screwdriver. And twist till you're almost out. You can move it to give yourself some room. And you're free. That's all you gotta do for now.Right there, you wanna take these bolts off that keep the air cleaner to the cowl. I've got a 10-millimeter socket. Just take them off. We've got clips on the bottom that they tighten into so that we can keep [inaudible 00:05:38] on the bottom [inaudible 00:05:40] need to worry about. All the way out. Keep them close. Over to the other one, same size [inaudible 00:06:03]Pull them out. Set them aside. After you get the bolts out of the front, you wanna remove the crankcase vent tube. So, you wanna push in on this little clamp right here on the inside and push it in. Give yourself some room. And just grab it, pull, off it comes, and then just move it out of your way. Okay. So, after your hose is disconnected, your bolts off the front, you wanna remove the last anchor here on the passenger side. It's another 10-millimeter. And turn it till it comes out.Take it and set it aside. So, you're [inaudible 00:06:57] your bolts out here and here and against the fender. This whole air cleaner should come out. Pull it off your throttle body. Give yourself some room. And pull the box out here. It's attached with grommets so it might be harder to pull up. And you wanna make sure that you can get it out. Move around till it starts to pull, and then pull it out. The grommets came with it, so we will have to pull those off and put them back in before we can install the new one.So, after getting everything out, you wanna take off this air temperature sensor. There's a little latch right here. You pull up, turn counterclockwise, and then pull it out. And then set this aside because you're gonna have to put this back into the new cold air intake. And so we wanna start putting together the airbox. You'll need heat shield spacer, and this little piece of hose for this part. We're looking at 08186. There are two threaded holes here, and then there are two holes on top of the box. You get them as lined up as close as possible and make your adjustments later. Put this through with the big end inside the box. Put your hose on. Everything on. You put your hose clamp on till you're lined up close. That's it. Eight-millimeter or flathead screwdriver. Tighten it snug. It's plastic on the inside so you don't wanna overtighten it. Get it nice and snug because you'll want to move it around later.And it's in there. Gonna make some adjustments later, but now we'll start putting it together. So if you get your hose clamp on snug. We're gonna put the two screws in to hold it. Screws are supplied. They go screw, split washer, and then flat washer. Line up your holes. Start it. Each one on each side. Second one. Line up your holes.Start it. I'm using a number four Allen wrench. All the way down. Snug. Go over and get snug. You can hold it from the back and then tighten flush. I'm gonna with just little torque. The airbox is done. Up next is this trim piece. You're gonna put the trim piece around the edge of your airbox. Keep it from rubbing the body. Keep you from getting cut on it. Get a much better seal for the air. It's straightforward, fairly simple, but a time-consuming process of getting it around this right here. There's a groove. And you can start wherever and just start pushing it in there. You will feel it seat down onto the box. And you just work your way around.As you can see, it starts seating down in there. Back. Give yourself some room to get started. A little closer to the bottom. Start it. Work your way around. You're gonna feel it pushing down in there, kind of locking into place. And you just want to follow the pattern all the way around till you get to completely cover the corners. A little tricky. Might take you a couple of times in the same process to make your corner. It rolls around the edges fairly easy. There's hard 90-degree corners. It'll give you a better fit. This is honestly the most difficult part of the process. And it's mostly more time-consuming than actually difficult.Everything's in. Let's go back and work on this corner a little bit. For the most part, the box is ready to go. Next up we need to put the grommets, supports onto the bottom of the box. There they are. They fit into the car down into the frame of the Jeep. So, you want to go get your bolt, your lock, flat, and then grommet mount. They go right here. Push that through. [inaudible 00:13:33] you want split washer, flat washer from the bolt down. And then your grommet connector, and it just screws in. The second one. Bolt, split washer or lock washer, flat washer, and a bracket. Grommet connector. Screw it in. And you want to tighten these down. [inaudible 00:14:10] you want to take a 13-millimeter socket, and I've got a crescent wrench. You can use any kinda pliers or any tool to hold onto here. I believe the crescent's set to about 23 millimeters. I'll do the inside first. Get your crescent. There's two flat edges. Get your crescent, tighten.That's tight. Repeat on the other side. Just tighten up. And airbox is now complete. So, after everything's out, your bolt's out from the fender, you're gonna start putting the new air cooler in. You wanna start here at the throttle body. And I'll put this coupling, 08690, on the throttle body. Make sure it's that particular number because you get multiple sizes. So just slip it on. Then you put your hose clamp on. I prefer this side. Preference. For simplicity, moving forward, I would say make sure that your locking screw is at a good place to get pulled off. I like to put it on the right side and facing up so I can get to it. Once you're lined up, you can start tightening down your bracket. This is the eight-millimeter socket. You can use a flat-bladed screwdriver. Whatever. Just start tightening it up.I like to leave them a little loose until everything's boarded up, in case I need to do some adjustments. So, we'll come back and make sure everything's tight, but for right now, it's snug and ready to go. On the Jeep, they came off my air cleaner. They may stay, they may come off. If they come off, they're easy to put back in. One goes here. The other one goes here. Just line them up. Pinch them a little bit until you feel them seat down in there. So, I got one. The grommets are back in. And moving on.After you get your grommets back in or the air cleaner out, whatever step you're on, you wanna take this inner bolt out to give you some clearance. That's a 10-millimeter again.The backing nut is welded to the fender. It comes out quite easy. Get it out and remove. And set it to the side. Everything installed, trim, grommet adapters, everything ready to go. You want to put this back in the car. You wanna line up these with the factory grommet plugs as they were before. Take your plugs and just drop them down in there like they were. Line it up. [inaudible 00:17:30] move till they're in. And then you're gonna need a screw, and then you want them mounted here. So, after you get it pushed down in there, you take your bolt and anchor it. One goes through here. The washer. The spacer goes between the fender and airbox. And you can get started. Start it. Ten-millimeter.There we go. If you get the air temperature sensor out, you need to install it into the new cannon tube. Take the grommet. It comes with K&N parts pack. Get it inside this tube. It seats. You can see a little bit here. And smooth against the inside. You take the air sensor. Push it down in there. You want to put it in there. You can twist it a little bit. Move it around. You need to be careful because the sensor is quite fragile. You wanna push it in till it seats in there flush. There's a little lip on the sensor flush with the grommet. And then you're in.You wanna install your aluminum tube in. So you put your hose clamp on the hose. [inaudible 00:19:29] works the same side, so they all line-up. So [inaudible 00:19:35] in. Make sure it's seated. And you may want to just get this ready. Just push it down in there. Then you wanna start tightening this up. This is your eight-millimeter or your flathead screwdriver. So, once you've attached to the throttle body, you can take your hose clamp and you wanna put it on here. You wanna line up your aluminum tube to the hose. And spin it around. You want there easy. You can take a prybar or a screwdriver, work your hose around.And now it's around. Push it down till it seats. That's tight. Move your clamp up. [inaudible 00:20:36] loosen it a little bit. Flathead screwdriver, same as all the other clamps we used.[inaudible 00:20:55] slide it until you feel it over the tube. A couple of millimeters back from the edge. Tighten it up. Eight-millimeter or a flathead screwdriver. Tighten it up snug. And that's it. Tube's on. You wanna take your crankcase ventilation tube, slide it over the end. Till you feel it click. Be in place. Give it a tug. It ain't going anywhere. You wanna come over here. Find your sensor probe. Reattach that as before. It should be roughly lined up the way it was. You can move it around [inaudible 00:21:41] you hear it click. And you're connected. And now the filter.K&N filter. It'll go over the inlet on the airbox. This slips on here. Make sure you've got your air hose clamp on. Just put it on there. There's a groove for the hose clamp to fit into. Eight-millimeter as everything else. Pack it up. Slotted screwdriver. Preference. Hold it up on there until you get it nice and tight. Snug on there. And tighten it up. And once you're all done and together, what we were talking about, just go back and get everything and [inaudible 00:23:10] all together. And we don't need to move it. Okay. And then we come over here to the throttle body. These two.Tight. Get some tight in there. K&N supply stickers. These are mostly to tell you or mechanics that you've got K&N air cleaner on it. Don't replace it. Clean it. You can install these if you like to. If not, it's up to you. Just good to remember. I'd at least recommend installing that one possibly here, on the box, and this one here on the box. Wherever you would like.Merideth: So that is going to wrap it up for my review and the install of the K&N Series 77 High Flow Performance Cold Air Intake fitting all 2018 and newer 3.6-liter JL Wranglers.
