Just finished putting the aem brute force intake and throtle spacer in! Pretty easy to install took about 45 min. It definatly made a difference, throtle response is better, and a nice sucking sound in the higher rpms. :lol:

Jim, my Jeep was borrowed by AEM as the R&D vehical for the Brute Force in a 4.0L YJ.

My impression....well, lets just say I sold it while it was new in an unopened box. I did see the configuration they used while I picked it up at AEM & saw the printout dyno numbers.

One thing I would do whenever a cotton gauze air filter like a K&N is installed, and if you wheel in dusty conditions, is to install a prefilter over the top of that kind of filter. K&N air filters are really bad about letting dust through, even if they are scrupulously maintained and oiled.

I finally dumped my K&N because of how poorly it stopped dust from my desert wheelings but before I did so, I got it filtering a bit better by installing two prefilters on top of it. First installed was a K&N Outerwears prefilter. When the Outerwears didn't fit tightly enough to keep dust from entering from the side, I slipped a foam Unifilter on top. Between the K&N, Outerwears, and the foam Unifilter, it was finally filtering nearly as well as the factory paper filter.

Since I can't go back to the factory filter due to an OBA compressor being in the way, I am now running a Trueflow air filter which filters quite a bit better than the K&N. Dang, I wish I could just go back to the stock air box and paper filter. :biggrin1:

JerryBransford,
That might be good out by you but in the swamp we have wet wet white mud black mud and the K&N works best with out the prefilter.

Jerry,

I agree, I've experienced the same even in Dirt, Mud and Dusty. I do have a prefilter that I use when when it is really dusty. Even our local stone trails that are crushed rock creates a lot of Dust. I have a Turbo City tube with their filter that it's like a K&N or the AEM, it does well but in my opinion not well enough when the elements start kicking in. I've had this for a while.

Everything I've heard from True Flow and guys that I personally know that have use it seems to be the way to go for guys that can not go back to the stock box. I have a connection with a distributor and I think I'm going to order one. This is the one I'll be ordering to fit my tube.
