I have heard mixed reviews on all bolt on "go fast" parts for the 3.8L. Up to you though, you'll probably gain something since you are already intaked and exhausted (tired?). lol. Good choice on the Synergy long arm though. I am jealous.

How about add some auxiliary lighting?

Throttle body spacers are a waste of money. I noticed no difference by putting one on. they only really help carbed motors. I second the aux lights.

The TBS is a total waste.

Right up with Rock Krawler and the like. I am slowly going to phase my lift to either Synergy or RK.

TBS's do two things: They decrease under hood clearance, and simulate going faster because you weigh less since your wallet is lighter

I have installed (2011 JKU) Volant CAI and a 62mm TBS. I have noticed a small increase both hp and gas. There's a noticeable diff (n a good way) when ur towing.
Next I'd like to do the exhaust.

Thanks for all the input. And I already got lights( 2 kc drivin white, and piaa yellow) Gunna wire my stock fog wring to 4 lights in going to mount behind the front tires and before the back tires as Rock lights. Out from under the jeep once I scope out a good spot. And figure out what them wires are capable of for output. And reverse lights once I get a good tirecarrier to mount them to. Possibly the schrock work one.
