I believe the speed density system the 3.6 has(rather than a MAF sensor) would not see the benefit of ported throttle body or a CAI, unless a tune is included in the upgrade. My $0.02.

That's my guess also, no tune= no substantial gains. Though some owners dyno results showed a few hp gain. The TB isn't actually fully ported either, it's ported before & after the butterfly, so the butterfly is still the oem size.

Do they sell a chip,for the 012 yet

I got a 3.8l I got the super chip first them letter I got the bigger throttle body and it made a huge difference. My wrangler is almost pen star quick.



Also more air is more air whether its tuned ore not, I'm sure tuning will help you reach it's full potential, but I don't see how adding more air will not effect it. Think like adding a k&n in t take more air = more power

No tune yet for the 3.6L Pentastar engine. Maybe in ten yrs... lol Meanwhile IIRC the 5.0L Ford Coyote engine had tunes before it hit the street.
Dame I want to buy an 2012-13 but I love power and I want my jeep to smoke my buddies. Fj off and on the road

It will depend on your gearing/options a goolging shows the fj 0-60 ~7.2.
I,don't know but I've done a few things to my jk 3.8 and that fj kills me in power

My bad I was thinking you had a 3.6. I'm very surprised at the 0-60 times of the fj w/only ~260hp, it must be made out of tin foil to accomplish those times.

The fj is approximately 200lbs less than the JKU, which will help the fj's 0-60 times(but 7.2 is still oddly quick for a 260hp suv).
