You need the 4.0 TB. You swap over your 2.5 TB sensors onto the 4.0 TB, then bolt on. Although I would bore out the intake manifold to match the now larger TB, otherwise it could potentially be WORSE than before because you would essentially have a large wall that the air hits as it passes the TB.

The ford 19lb injectors spray a finer mist (atomize better) and are said to help a lot with the 4.0TB. I have not done either on the jeep, but have done similar mods to other cars and it's usually a bit more upper end power and more crisp throttle response.

What other info is available about the 2.5L to 4.0L Throttle body conversion is there? this sounds interesting and i would be willing to do it.

Your CCV is plugged and your PVC could use a good cleaning or replacement.

The ccv is a brass plug located on the valve cover above cyl. 1 on the drivers side. Take it out, clean out the sludge, put it back in.

As for the 4.0 tb swap:
security torx are needed
all sensors must be swapped or replacement 2.5l sensor be installed.
There will be no benifit unless you bore the manifold to match the gasket
a 1-2" spacer is recommended for increase torque inprovements.
Reset computer and allow 30+ start run stop cycles. You may experiance erratic idel on first start up.

Injectors:
ford/bosh 19# yellow top injectors type 2 found in 5.0 mustangs type 3 in exploders.. Both work
without raising fuel pressure fuel delivery is actually .1# lower. Atomization is the main improvement.

Adjustible FPR:
only useful if you have done the above and possibly
headers, cam, 62mm tb instead of 4.0, etc
allows injectors to work at full potential
more pressure = more atomization = more power = more combustible fuel

electric fan
more responsive throttle
great cheap replacement for a toast clutch fan.

you will not notice a difference in power by just doing a 4.0 tb.
