Give Your Little Jeep Patriot or Jeep Compass Big Power with a Spectre Air Intake

Spectre intake system for Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass

Spectre 9053 cold air intake system for the 2011-2016 Jeep Patriot and 2011-2016 Jeep Compass

Jeeps used to be hardcore trucks that were designed to survive in hardcore environments. But times have changed and little trucks like the 2011-2016 Jeep Patriot and 2011-2016 Jeep Compass prove that Jeep has kept up. Unlike Jeeps of old, these SUVs are designed to be nice, and they can be fitted with creature comforts like heated seats, soft touch-points, and touchscreen infotainment. Front-wheel drive is standard issue. But Trail Rated models have no problem tackling the backcountry, thanks to features like an elevated suspension, skid plates, and two very capable 4x4 systems. Motivation is supplied by a pair of peppy 4-cylinder engines (2.0L & 2.4L) that have just enough grunt to get you through the rough stuff, while still returning decent fuel economy numbers. You can however, increase the horsepower and torque in your Jeep 4cyl, by simply installing a Spectre 9053 cold air intake system.

Like all gas-powered vehicles, the Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot drag themselves down the road by injecting air and fuel into the cylinders, then igniting the mixture with a spark plug. The air is a key component, because without it the fuel couldn't burn. To make the fuel burn hotter and release more energy/horsepower, you've got to reduce the temperature of the air going into the cylinders. Cold air has more oxygen molecules than warm air, so adding a Spectre 9053 cold air intake system will enable the Jeep 2.0L & Jeep 2.4L to produce more horsepower and torque.

The stock Jeep intake actually restricts airflow by forcing air to travel through a thick paper air filter and a narrow, uneven intake tube. Those restrictions also cause the air to heat up and loose some of its potency. A Spectre 9053 cold air intake system on the other hand, eliminates some of these restrictions by utilizing a wide-diameter aluminum intake tube that's been mandrel bent to provide a more direct airflow path. And to get more air into the system, an oversized Spectre HPR air filter is positioned behind a ruggedized heat shield so it can collect a higher volume of air than the stock air box, while preventing hot engine bay air from entering the system. The oiled synthetic air filter uses a depth-load design to remove significantly more contaminates than a paper filter. It's also reusable, and the depth loading material stores dirt deep within the filter, which means less airflow restriction as dirt builds.

Unlike many cold air systems, the Spectre 9053 doesn't require any underhood modifications or ECU reprogramming. The entire system can be installed in about 90 minutes, and it even has fittings for the factory sensors.
