What do you guys think of this?

Just likethe title says what do you think? Please keep this civil!!!! Or else!
I'm just looking for thoughts and opinions here. Also I'm going to say that I am on the side that says it's a waste of money. But after reading the first mythown the article I might be changing my mind. Oh and I know that this article is old but I found it when I was doing so research on why my jeep acts funny in the cold. If anything this was a good read so enjoy and don't forget the opinions.

The writer never discloses where in the RPM range the HP increases on any of these mods is realized.

I am not sure if that is the same article.....but I got my '04 sport in '04...I only get into deep mud or extreme dusty dirty conditions 2 or 3 times a year...I have flowmaster exhaust, with a high flow cat, air raid throttle body spacer and "CAI" kit...IMO it is better than it was stock....call it placebo effect...it is okay with me.

I have 31" 3.73's OME lift 5spd...I get 17-18mpg in town, and 20-22 on the highway @ 55mph. If I run 70-75mpg on the highway it drops to 16mpg.

I get a lot of compliments on the sound and on the road it is not to loud or intrusive. I did these "MODS" before I joined WF...and I am happy with them.

I noticed this as well. I am also wondering if there isn't any sort of bias being used so the companies can sell more of these things but that might be streatching it. Who knows. If it is true though they did say something about the Major benefit coming from removing the kinked convoluted factory ducting. Hey if that was true it wouldn't be to hard to replace that with something better.

Thanks for the replies btw!
