Hola, My first post, hope it's not too old or over hashed a' topic. I have a 2000 TJ, 5 speed/ 4 cyl. I just purchased a Max flow cold air intake and a JET power cont. chip. My questions are, Will these give a noticeable boost in power or have I just made a donation to online sales?
Second, These components both say "{easily installed}", does anyone know of any snags in installation I should be aware of prior to hooking them up?
Ohh, as for the horsepower "Q", FYI- The rest of my TJ is stock save my removal of the exhaust system & replacement w/a masterflow St.Steel muffler (which helped a little). My jeep's pretty low mileage for a 2000 model, and does O.K. on power. Just toying around to get a lil' extra. Twisted Evil

The best way to get power out of that 4cyl is to get rid of it. I have a 97 TJ and it too is a 4 banger. There isn't much you can do to make it any more powerful.

Sure, I know just what you need...an EFI 383 sb Chevy!
Ok...pipe dreams over. as mentioned before, there's not much that would truly help the 4 cyl. To get a fair amount power you'd want to swap to a 4.0 or a stroker 4.6L, but I hear the swap is expensive and difficult and in the end you realize you should have baught a 4.0 in the first place.
