Thanks for the info! Stumbled across this site whilst looking for someone who rents tool. Looks like I have a lot more learning to do.

Just finished reading and see there is some K&N hate around here. My girlfriend just bought a Liberty CRD Limited yesterday with a K&N filter that needs a cleaning. Should I clean it or do you guys recommend something else?

Get a NAPA gold filter, you could spend more for Amsoil, but then you have to clean it. I just buy NAPA and replace every 10-15K

Plenty of people here using K&N, but if you decide to wash it, make sure you oil it or it won't work properly. After a bit of research, I opted for the Napa Gold every 10/15k route, but that's just because I didn't want to mess with cleaning and oiling a reusable filter.

As Sam says, clean the MAP sensor as soon as you can. It's super easy and you'll notice the difference. I was surprised to see how it changed the feel of the vehicle and even my gas mileage.

Did that this afternoon after reading. It was gooped up just like the ones shown. Took it for a short drive around town and did seem to pull a little harder :D

I've used K&N's before and have no issue with them. Just wondering what other people do. I did see a V6 air box mod. Are there any performance gains to be had? I see it helps with filter life.

Read the independent testing of air filters. K&N doesn't rate very well in any test I've seen Amsoil, Baldwin, AC Delco and Mobile one filters always rated high in air, fuel and oil filters as well as a few others. I have a baldwin dealer close by and have fairly easy access to Amsoil.

The K&N's have higher flow in some instances. But they also do not catch as much dirt.

Is there an air filter upgrade for these vehicles?

I don't see room for something like a GM K-47 air box. But that would be my first choice

In the digging I've found so far, the only mod or upgrade is to swap out the air box for the one used on the 3.7 V6.

Correct (v6 airbox mod is the only "standard" airbox mod). I researched this, but it didn't seem worth the trouble (which isn't that involved; it just seemed like my time was better spent on mods that have more noticeable results).

My last
I ran for 800,000 miles. I'm in it for the long haul. If cleaner more abundant air gets me another 2 or 300,000 miles, that's the route for me.
what exactly is the difference between the air boxes?

I searched and didn't come up with results before I ran out of time.

I hate flat panel filters. There seems to always be way to much chance of introduction of dirt and consequently a shorter engine life.

Then you won't be happy with what you'll find. The box is only slightly bigger. It still uses a flat filter. :|

Here's a mod that's a little more involved you might prefer, but it also seems problematic in more than a couple of ways (compared to an enclosed flat filter). http://liberty.eurekaboy.com/airintake.htm If you're serious about the mod and live in a place where it EVER rains (or you drive through a creek), you'd need to find a way to protect the filter from water.

The link looks like a very bad idea. You want a cold air intake. Not to be sucking in hot engine compartment air. Kind of defeats the inter-cooler that way.
