Air cleaner upgrade: 617 --> Jeep TJ air box?

the Previous Owner of my Mog put on a rather large (aka HUGE) air box/air filter on my rig. Takes up pretty much the whole space infront of the passenger foot well. My rig has a 617 turbo with tall snorkle. PO drove it alot in the desert. Probably came off of a Mann truck. Anyway I would consider reducing the size of the air cleaner if it wont cause other problems.. I could really use the saved space for other important things.

Now, just recently I got hold of an air box/filter out of a Jeep TJ (6cyl gas engine). Anyone see any negatives to using this instead .

Thanx in advance.

engineered airflow

coachgeo,
I can't say for sure one way or the other whether your swap will be a problem...but I can tell you that different engines have different airflow requirements - it is possible the filter setup required for the TJ box won't meet the same needs as your engine.(though I would suspect it being less filtrative than a Benz)
