4 Cylinder Question

Maybe this thread will answer that for you.

thanks...Thats the thread I remember reading. BUT is the computer good with all that?? Also is the stock fuel filter ok?
Do I NEED to upgrade the fuel pressure reg that is on the fuel inj rail? AND will need a hot coil to digest all that air/fuel??
Thanks again, will post pics when its back from paint

My understanding of a throttle body, is to just allow more air flow into your engine. I may be wrong about that, but I would not think that you will have to do anything with your fuel pressure. This will simply allow more air to mix with your fuel, thus giving you more power. These are questions that you could PM the ones that have actually done it. I am sure they will be more than happy to tell you everything you need to know to make the transition complete. Best of luck with this, and it sounds like it will help a lot. From what I read of that thread, they were very happy with the results.

I bet someone will pop in with the information.

Using the 4.0 TB is a cheap upgrade.
Unhook the battery while you do it and the comp will relearn.
If you dont already have a K&N air filter and a header now is the time to do that too.

I don't know about the header, but it has been proven that K&N is snake oil. There's a thread somewhere in the forum somewhere that discusses that at legth. Don't waste your money.
