Performance Chips???

I'm looking for better fuel economy and performance from my 04' Wrangler X.
Any advice or personal experience would be greatly appreciated!

Don't waste your money on performance chips, throttle body spacers or cold air intakes. they will do nothing to improve fuel economy, and little to nothing to improve performance. Depending on your tire size, re-gearing is about the only proven performance mod for these gas guzzling beasts.

The only effective intake is the spectre cowl intake because it draws air from outside the engine compartment. It's 150$ on qtec too.
