New member from PA

Just checking in and saying hi. I'm a second time jeep wrangler owner from PA. My first wrangler was a 1995 wrangler rio grande. I recently picked up a 2010 Wrangler JK unlimited sport. So far it really feels great to be back in a jeep after all these years. I've already replaced the factory speakers with the kicker mopar replacements as well as front and rear grab handles, Quadratec rubber floor liners and mopar entry guards. Rugged ridge 4" oval tube steps too.

I also plan to add the Banks ram air and cat back exhaust in the near future.

I've always been into cars,mostly mustangs which I heavily modded. I'm just trying to squeeze a few more hp out of my 3.8, and getting engines to breath and exhaust better is a good place to start. Thanks for the welcomes.

Overall you are talking 10hp maybe on a dyno (after installing both) This isn't my first car I wanted to do the same thing..... but no one has much luck getting any gain from the 3.8 not even a fuel cons savings.....
Just my $.02

Your 2 cents is well taken. I may be putting it on the backburner for now. $700 bucks for 10hp?
