Sweet! That's what I'd love to do as well, soon as I can get a rebel... Any plans for exhaust now?

FYI, I got the 63-1561 KN intake system. The sound is awesome! I want to think I feel the difference, but heck, who knows. I'm seeing a 1mpg increase in mpg. I paid $215 after shipping for the setup. Installation was easy. It took me 2 hours including my beer consumption.
Do you know if the manufacturer has any problems with folks using this. Like in case that you ran into engine issues, could they not say that you modified their setup and that its your responsibility not theirs?


Also, is K/N guaranteeing that their product will not affect your vehicle warranty?

Not bad at all for the cost and time involved.

Would be even more interesting to see what more can be had out of it with a tune in comparison to someone not running the intake but did go for the same tune.

No plans for exhaust right now. I'm happy with the sound. Couple other folks on this forum have upgraded their exhaust and I heard the audio clips. They all sound good to me.
KN guarantees there will be no warranty issues. I'm not concerned because my past car and the wife's current car have kn intakes. We've never had issues when warranty work is completed.

That response to exhaust is consistent with what i've been hearing a lot of people report back. Glad we got a great sounding system from the factory.

I know when I installed my K&N intake on my 07 Ram, I was quite surprised how awesome the truck sounded when I got on the throttle. I added my flowmaster 50 series exhaust a couple weeks after that. I noticed it actually seemed a little quieter after that. Like any drone that was in the cab before the exhaust system, then left out the pipes to the rear and behind me. Dual exhaust was a relief haha! Amazing difference in just taking the resonator off. Much louder in the cab and out the stock exhaust. Then noticing the difference after my exhaust system.

That's a good price! Where did you get your intake from? I at least got free shipping to Alaska (they treat us like we are practically a foreign country and bend us over with overpriced shipping charges)... I'm still waiting to take delivery of my Rebel!! Should be here sometime later on this month between 11/14-11/20 is the latest ETA... I have my K&N intake and Flowmaster exhaust all ready to go at my house. Still waiting to hear a clip from your truck to help me pass the time haha!

I looked up the part number and it noted for not for sale or use in California. :( I take it your not in California.

I'd love to have one. I have a Banks CAI on my Jeep Rubicon and love the sound it make when jumping on it.

Stinks having to wait. Hope you get your truck soon. I love mine and am always coming up with excuses to drive it. And the interior is awesome and unlike anything else out there.

KN guarantees their product not to void manufacturer warranty. I've had it on past vehicles (not Ram or Chrysler) and none of them ever said anything about it.

I got mine off CARID but I think AUTOANYTHING usually has better deals.

I just installed the same intake yesterday on my Rebel. Did you find it difficult to get the new supplied hose onto the stock crank case vent tube? I had a **** of a time getting it on there. Once i finally got it attached i even used a small hose clamp just to make sure it never came out. The instructions looked like it assumed my 2016 Rebel had a stock hose instead of the plastic tube. otherwise install was very easy and I also love the sound! Whether it gets me more power or MPG will be hard to tell.

Yeah, my bad to mention this...I cut the supplied hose that connects to the crank case. If I remember correctly, it says to cut it as 'necessary'. I cut it pretty short so it would fit properly. I added an extra clamp on it for security purposes. I think that was the only and biggest hang up for me.

So are you saying it needs to be cut to fit better or you cut it too short?
