JLT Intake

Hey everybody, I just got a JLT cai from AM last week. I only have one concern about it though and that thats that the pipe seems to rest on the coolant tube underneath it, obviously it makes the tube itself super hot. I tried to twist the whole thing up some but when I check to see clearance with the hood it was clear that the hood would end up hitting. Thanks for any feed back!

That's a weird one... can you post a pic of it so we can get a better idea what were looking at? Your positive the install was perfect and you didn't break anything?

Ya didn't break anything on it, I know that for sure. I'll run down and try and take a picture.

Ok well after about a hundred times but I can't get the pictures to load on here. I'll keep trying, if anyone has suggestions let me know.

the coolant isn't making the incoming air so hot that you need to be concerned

Mine rests on the coolant tube as well. I haven't had any issues as of yet, but doesn't look like there is a solution either.

The pipe on mine rests about 1/3 inch above the coolant hose.

I have tried adjusting mine so many times only to fail. Either it rests on the rad hose or its to high that the hood won't close. I need to get some sort of wrap for the rad hose cause its way to hot for the intake to be resting on.

I'm not really worried about the air temp but rather worried about the hose melting the intake tube and causing a leak.

I agree that was my concern with it too.

Your coolant tube is def. routed differently then mine. Yours seems to bend down before getting to the intake tube, mine goes right under. I will snap a picture tonight, and try to post it up here.

EDIT: Mine goes down and towards the drivers side, where yours goes down towards the passenger side. Very strange.
