  • air intake off ebay

    Has anyone every brought a air intake off of ebay?

    any bad or good advice?

    because i just purchased one and plan on getin a k&n to put on it, so pretty much it'll be like a k&n intake, alot cheaper,,,,,and if yall are wondering, it's because i have a storeage box on the passager side fender

    and needed it to come on the drivers side, and couldn't find another, or able to fab one up for cheaper,,,just $29,,,what yall think?

    Well well well....what about making your own for under $10? I would think it would work as long as you buy a filter that has the same size adapter plate as on the intake.

          I did the same thing bought one off ebay and replaced the filter with a GREEN. I use the cheap filter for when I play in the mud and the GREEN for all my usual driving. It works great.

            bamjp1, thanks

            i'm goin to use the cheap filter till it gets dirty, then swap for a k&n and get a bag thingy that goes over it, to protect it.

            but by the way did u feel any increases in power ??????

                I hate to say this but I did not feel a power increase but it went on about the same time my 31's did. GREEN is just a name brand my buddy sells, very comparible to K&N or any reusable filter. I got it at cost so I bought it.

                        I bought one the ebay intakes a few weeks back. It was nice, cheap, and relatively easy to install. I think the YJ model would have been easier to install..but for my TJ, i had to build some extra brackets out of sheet metal to keep it from wobbling around. I actually felt a lil bit more power, not to mention the nice sound. I did combine it with the poweraid throttle body spacer though, and i really notice more power, plus my MPG went up a lot! well...like 2..but i feel like that's a lot for jeeps. Just be ready if you have to mess around with it during the install.

                            Yeah, it says for off-road use only. I have a year or so until i have to get my car inspected, so we'll see if i pass then. Until that time, i just hold onto my stock parts just in case new jersey laws say i can't pass.
