For which engine? Year?

If it ain't broke, I can fix it.
Why are all the folks that know how to fix everything busy driving taxis or cutting hair?

For a TJ, they're a complete waste of $$$. Same with throttle body spacers. I've had both given to me to try and they made zero difference in anything.
When you have a choice, buy American.
