I was talking to my friend the other day about these and he was telling me that it only helps with peak performance at very high RPM, dosn't do any thing for every day driving.

Yeah I put one on and while I was in there i dumped a couple of metal shavings in the intake to kinda break the motor in. Also I added a bigger blinker resivior so I could more blinker fluid. All his did wonders for me! Ill have to agree +100 HP atleast.

Stacey is getting paid the big bucks to say what ever they want.......... Keep that in mind. It's good that you asked for some real world opinions before dropping your hard earned cash on some extra weight for the Jeep... The guys will give you crap, but honestly, if you don't ask, how will you know? So don't worry about the razzing, and keep your money for something that you will receive some benefit from

I also occassionally clean my heads by pouring a gallon of water directly into the intake hose, works wonders!

I got one for ya fellas! For cable operated throttle bodies
Take air box off or expose your tb so u can see your buttterfly valve.
Now place something like a jack on the gas pedal. Now go look at how open the butter fly valve is. (when i checked mine it was barely open! )
I put a 3/8 extention between the valve to hold it open . Went back to the gas pedal and with the slack tha was gained i tied off 4 small size zap straps around the cable in between the rubber stopper to take up the slack. By doing this ive tightened the cable,and have quikend the response of acceleration. A fast easy way to not only open your butterfly valve for more air but once you touch the pedal its responsive.
My reason for using a 3/8 is i have just the 2.4l. just a little tb. You essentialy open it as much as u want

While I don't know the details, these were supposedly good modifications with carburated engines but not so much with fuel injection. I am guessing this is what Stacey was working with on that Gearz...
