More Power?

Is there anyway to get more HP out of a 4cylinder YJ? I really don't want to pull an engine swap until I have the $$$ to go to an 8 and do it RIGHT.

coolant question

Folks I need a easy answer to a dumb question.

Is there a plug in the block that is used to drain the coolant that stays in it after you turn the engine off?

It is a 95, 2.5 liter.

Yeah, I was able to bypass the morning RockStar and still found myself wide awake.

It was a interesting way to start a Monday, the good thing is I learned I want a bikini top even less now.
