On the TJ's 4.0 they are useless.

But the OP. Has a JK with the 3.8 V6.


OP.... I'm not sure on the induction system of the 3.8 V6. It is a completely different motor from the 4.0 straight 6 in the TJ's.

Hopefully someone with knowledge of your motor can help you out.

Well anything to help the "caravan" motor work better is a plus but even if the TB spacer makes any difference for your motor besides a "cool whistle sound". Only exspect 1or2 hp. and 2 to 4 torque.

A good "real" exhaust system and air filter should help you out some with getting a little out of the motor.

Thanks for the input. I've got an air raid cool air intake & about to put a catback system on, but not sure if the catback is only going to impact the sound... I could care less about the sound, I'm just trying to squeeze every ounce out the 3.8.
