well im not regearin a D35 for sure ... , and love the info you just gave me

if my cat was clogged, would my O2 senor trip my check engine light? cause its not on and it passed inspection not long ago

tune up it is!
do i need a fuel filter?

i cant afford to do a fuel pump for sure

and i drive pizza's so i use lucas fuel treatment every 2 weeks or so

750 miles a week or so

now the question is , is "performance " plugs like the new g3 or w/es any better then normal ones? more spark = more repsonse time?

yes it would.
no you dont need fuel filter, its inside the pump.
just use simple plain copper plugs.

no its not it will perform poorly or not. its it DOES not add power at all.
they can barely satisfy the air intake volume of the engine how would you think it would add power?
a turbo/super charger needs 30-50 hp just to drive it. thats 21-35kw. a 1kw fan does nothing.

2.5L will never be a powerhouse, no matter what you throw on, in or at it.
Regearing will help you, but don't expect miracles.
Stay away from those 'Gimmick' plugs....

not necessarily catalytic converters can start to get clogged up before you get a check engine light.

my post was about how electric fans perform cooling the engine. not how the engine performs with out the mechanical fan to move around. while its not gona add power, there are a few reasons to have one over a mechanical fan. however the OP will most likely find that the mechanical fan works out wonderfully for his jeep.

I'm running 31x10. on my 2.5 and can easily do 75 and just down shift if i hit a hill thats to steep. Ive just made sure to have mine tuned up whenever i need it. i changed the plugs a few months ago and that made a huge difference on how it ran!
