Yeah, it is stupid...not when you can add a header and cat back and get more low end torque....that's what ya need most on the trail anyway.

But even in regards to (modern) vehicles in general, there's a misconception that all you need to do is slap a chip in and you're good. In order to get the most out of the chip, you should add at least aftermarket exhaust and intake systems. Combustion engines are, in the simplest terms, air pumps...open up the exhaust and intakes a little, then do you're performance tuning (which is all the chips do).

I agree with you 100%. If you remember my post about the intake....That and an exhaust would be first and foremost as far as engine stuffs. Although, exhaust, if you throw the headers in there too, can get very expensive and that's not something that you can make up on your own like a snorkel or the cowel intake. If anything, for me anyway, I think that I would do a pipe and can and the cowel intake and later on get the headers cause that the big $$ part [from the limited searching that I have done on the subject].....

Qad - I was wearing the FM2CDJC shirt today and I got a comment about it. It was a good one too......from another jeeper...I directed him here so we shall see if anyone comes on saying I sent them here.... Finger

True, it can get expensive...especially if you start talking about headers, hi-flow cats, performance mufflers and custom piping...but on Jeeps the factory header is pretty effecient. Throw on a nice muffler (Flowmaster, etc.) and a 2.5" tailpipe and you'll see some increases in low end torque, plus a little more top end horsepower.

As far as intakes go...you can modify the stock airbox to get more air through, as well as bore out the throttle body....
