Today on CJ Off-Road we're gonna show you how to increase the performance of your Jeep Wrangler.

If you wanna increase the horsepower of your JK and make it perform better all around, then today we're looking at this Airaid MXP cold air intake, with the Synthaflow filter, fitting a 2012 to 2018 Jeep Wrangler. This MXP series cold air intake features a direct fit upgrade for all 12 through 18 JK Wranglers with a 3.6 liter Pentastar engine. It's a quick and easy install with standard tools, and it's gonna replace your stock air box, filter, and the intake too. Now this is gonna increase your horsepower and torque, to give you added performance both on a trail and on a highway. It features the premium quality Synthaflow air filter, to give you a long lasting air quality in the engine of your JK.

Now today we're gonna get it installed in our 2014 Jeep Wrangler.

Tools need for this installation: a quarter inch ratchet; 5/16" socket; 3/8" ratchet; 10MM socket; 11MM deep socket; 5/32" Allen key socket; 7/32" Allen key socket; a short extension; long extension; 11MM box wrench; 11/16" box wrench; a drill; a 3/16" drill bit; a hacksaw; file; pair of pliers; a marker; and a tape measure.

The first step of this install is to remove the engine cover. You simply pull it up and then pull it right towards you, and it'll pull right out. The next step is going to be to remove this factory intake tube. First get this band clamp off and then we're gonna remove some of these bolts that hold the intake tube to this factory radiator out here. Move this other band clamp and it should be good to go.

Make sure you hang on to this hardware, you'll be using it later. With all those removed, we can now remove the clips on the air box here, get the whole intake and the air box off. There's two up front here, just pull them towards you. There's one back here on this side of the air box, and then there's one way tucked under here, that'll have to come off. And like that you should be able to pull the top of your air box off.

Make sure when you pull the intake tube off you disconnect the temperature sensor, and just set that aside, you'll be using it later. Before you can remove the air box lid, the crankcase breather hose has to be pulled off. To get that lower part of the air box out there's two little grommets that go in. Simply pull the air box up and it'll pop out. And make sure you hold onto your factory air box, we're gonna need to drill this out a little bit so we can make it work with our new Airaid kit.

We've got the factory air box out here and set it on the table. We're gonna drill these two rivets that hold on the inlay tube, that way we can reuse it on the Airaid kit. Once the rivets are drilled out, pull it right up towards you and you can keep this piece, we're gonna modify this here in a second. You can set this aside. With the factory inlet tube pulled out we're gonna measure back three inches and make a mark, and that's where we need to cut it in order to make it fit on the new Airaid box.

With our lines marked we can go ahead and cut it. We have the factory inlet tube up here on a vice and we're gonna use a hacksaw to get these three inches off.

Once you have this cut it's very important to get all these little debris and the plastic scraps left over out. You don't want that sucking up into your air box and into your engine. If you go along with your finger you can get most of it off, or use a file and get it really cleaned up.

You're gonna grab this bracket here, which is gonna allow you to use your factory inlet tube with the Airaid box. We're getting it in such a manner as this, and then we're gonna set it right on there like that and use the number eight small Allen key head bolts and put them through like such. We're gonna put a washer on the back and a nut. Just snug them up with your fingers, then we'll get them tightened down.

We're gonna get this factory inlet tube on the new bracket installed to the Airaid box here. Gonna use the provided hardware and go through each of the holes here. Just push it through lightly, and we'll put a washer and a nut on the back side. We're gonna get these tightened up using an 11MM socket and an 11MM box wrench.

Once you get that all tightened down we're ready for the next step. To get the air box mounted up you first have to remove these factory three grommets and we're gonna replace them with threaded grommets. With the factory grommets out, install your new threaded grommets. You're gonna put the lip up towards you, and they simply slide into the factory three location.

Now you're ready to install your new air box. Go ahead and grab your new air box and put this hole towards the driver's side of the vehicle, and your inlet tube towards you and set it into location.

Once you have the air box in, go ahead and grab your hardware here - it's gonna be the large Allen key bolts - and get them started. I find it helpful to get a really large extension, then you can put it in and get them started by hand. Once you have them snugged up, go ahead and ratchet them down.

Using the factory intake tube we're going to remove this temperature sensor here. Simply grab a hold of it, lean it towards the left, and then twist it out a little bit. Once it's broken free you pull it out towards you. Be very careful with these, as they're pretty delicate on the inside. We're gonna push this over into our new intake tube. With the Airaid intake tube on the table there's gonna be two holes. This one with the threaded end here, you're gonna put the temperature sensor into. Make sure that the locking pin right here is facing towards this little cut out. Grab a number eight button bolt with a fender washer and go ahead and just get that started.

Once that's snugged up we're gonna turn that over here and work on our crankcase breather hose. Grab this threaded end here and it goes right underneath and simply threads in like such. Use an 11/16" box wrench, simply slide it over and get it snugged up. It's a lot easier to do this on the table than it is on the Jeep so make sure you don't skip these steps. Just get that snugged up, should be good to go.

Before we take the intake tube off the table we're gonna install the couplers. Now this one that reduces it goes actually into the throttle body, so it'll go up towards this end. Make sure it's on nice and tight. And then this end here with the two little humps is gonna go on this side.

There are three different sizes of hose clamp that comes with this kit. Now these two larger ones are gonna go on the end that goes into your air filter. This somewhat larger one is gonna go into this reducer here, and then the narrowest one is going to go into your throttle body. Make sure you do that right or else you'll be putting hose clamps at the wrong spot.

We're gonna get that slid over, and then tighten it down.

Once you have those two tightened up you're all good to go with the intake tube. Let's start working on the rest of the Jeep. Before we our intake tube mounted we're gonna mount up the bell mount here onto the actual air box, and simply goes in behind and uses the Allen key button bolts to tighten it to the front.

Get those snugged up, then you're ready to put the intake tube on. Before you put the intake tube on, we're gonna reconnect this electrical temperature sensor here. And then we're also gonna put the crankcase hose right onto the back. Simply slide one of these clamps right over top of the factory crankcase hose. Put it on the back of the inward, and then just apply pressure to both sides of the clamp and it'll get tighter. Now you're ready to slide the intake tube right onto your throttle body, and onto your new air box.

With the intake tube tightened down you can now put the filter inside your box. Grab your new Airaid Synthaflow filter, make sure the clamp is on it and slide it in. We'll put it right over the fitting and we'll get this clamp tightened down.

Now you're ready to put the cover on. We're going to install the new aluminum filter cover here. Put the gasket on it first and make sure that this lines up properly before we put it on the vehicle. Make sure the Airaid is upside down and this is the side that's going to go flush on the air box. Go ahead and pull back the backing on this.

Press firmly around the edges to makes sure you got a good fit. Now we're ready to get it installed in the air box. Grab the aluminum cover and set it up with the Airaid logo facing you, and we'll get one of the Allen key bolts started. Once all the bolts are snugged up we're gonna go round and tighten them up thoroughly to make sure that this gasket makes a good seal on top of the air box.

We're going to get our coolant overflow hose tucked up out of the way with the included brackets. Simply slide it over like such, clamp them down a little bit with your hand and then we're gonna use the included 6MM bolts to get them into the factory location. Grab another clamp and do the same for the other side.

Grab your factory engine cover, flip it upside down, and then use these attached spacers to go in the mounting holes. These are gonna keep the engine cover up and out of the way, that way it won't interfere with your new intake.

With the engine cover installed, that completes your installation.

That concludes the installation of our Airaid cold air intake on our JK, and it looks really great, plus it's gonna add a ton of power to our Jeep. The install time is about two hours, and you only need a few basic tools to get it done. Now you can find this air intake as well as many other great parts for your JK right here at
