im very sorry for posting this thread i know this has probably been posted a billion times, but browsing i couldnt pick one up. i have a 4 cylinder 1998 wrangler with a 4 1/2 lift with 33's. (personally i wouldnt have put this on but i dont have that kind of money to do away with) i just found a hole in the exhaust and i am going to replace that, but i would like to know some things i could do to put a little kick in my jeep, and have to drive on an uphill highway in 3rd and 4th back and forth so if you could please help i would appreciate it very much.
Welcome... as for the mighty 4 banger.. not a power house as you know. Gear change does help but is not cheap. The odd solution would be to run a smaller tire such as a 30". Granted it might look odd but you would regain some lost power. Then if you do go wheeling, switch back to the 33's.

i would really like to take it down to a lower lift and put smaller tires on, but i just dont have the money for something like that, i will eventually, but right now im just trying to find little things here and there to try to put a kick in it.
putting larger throttle bottle wont help much since exhaust is still tiny.. it can only take as much air in as it can push out.. make sure all wires and services are up to date that helps a little.. regearing is your best option.. as for exhaust there arent many options.. for a 4 banger..
