I have an 08 2.3 S/C and tried a CAI and it made no difference other than a little more noise from under the hood.
The 4.0s use the same airbox so it is highly unlikely that anyone will see an ACTUAL improvement on a 2.3 since they pull half the air of a 4.0.
Just sold my CAI on craigslist yesterday. Take my word for it....waste of over a hundred bucks.

Waste of money. By design, the OEM intake really does not need improvement. Adding a CAI will not gain you anything. It would be like putting a 48" storm drain pipe on your garden hose. It won't make more water come out.
