This carbon fiber sealed air box features a high-flow washable cotton element air filter internally and is specifically designed for use on RIPP Supercharged Jeep Wranglers.
This system is intended to be used with JK's, JL's, and JT's that have vented hoods so that water does not enter the regular air filter and for those who wish to add some performance and bling factor to their engine bay. This moves the air-inlet from the OEM position to a safer position behind the headlight. If you do not run this and have a vented hood you risk water leaking directly onto the RIPP supplied air filter which will then spill directly into the RIPP Supercharger. This can and will cause a supercharger failure because the supercharger is not designed to compress water. This can also cause permanent engine failure because naturally the engine should not ingest water. Replacement filtration elements only come in one piece, carbon fiber housing and filter.
Note: This will not work on 2007 - 2011 3.8 Jeep Wranglers
