Holley’s iNTECH cold air intake brand has developed a new system for the 2018-2019 Wrangler JL and the brand-new Gladiator JT, both with the 3.6L V6 (part no. 223-16). The iNTECH cold air intake system utilizes all the factory hardware, mounting locations, and emissions components to provide a factory-look installation. The iNTECH sealed intake uses their patented Slip-Seal housing filter tube design, which eliminates the need for rubber adapters and hose clamps to connect the piping to the filter.
The 4-layer dry air filter is a high-flow design that is washable and reusable, and because there is no need to oil the filter, it is MAF compatible and will not cause problems with check engine light illumination. The conical filter media is fabricated with an inner and outer aluminum mesh to prevent any deformation or rust concerns. The vertical mounting of the air filter assists in limiting any dust, dirt, or mud accumulation that is a result of extreme off-roading.

The iNTECH airbox easily slips into the factory location. Above center: The air inlet on the iNTECH airbox lines up with the factory inlet ducting. The vertical mounting of the dry 4-layer media conical filter assists in casting off debris while the inner and outer aluminum mesh resists deformation and rust. Above right: A durable silicone bellows coupler connects the superior designed one-piece intake tube to the throttle body. The bellows uses stainless steel hose clamps to clamp the assembly together. The iNTECH cold air intake design provides a cooler and denser intake charge, which should result in improved engine performance.
At the end opposite the filter, a durable silicone bellows coupler is employed to connect the efficient one-piece intake tube to the throttle body. The bellows uses stainless steel hose clamps to provide the proper clamping force. The iNTECH superior cold air intake is designed to deliver a cooler and denser intake charge, which will result in improved engine performance.
According to Holley’s in-house dyno testing, the iNTECH cold air intake produced an increase in horsepower and torque at every rpm point of the curve over the factory parts, with a peak of 24.86 horsepower and 22.60 lb-ft of torque.
