Wow thats bad ***. If it didn't cost as much as a yj i would love to have it

2.5 with a turbo sounds way more exotic than a 4.0 swap lol

Because the rubber tube with the air filter on it is not the worst of this motor. The problem is everything, including fundamental design issues that parts wont fix.

No point in arguing it anymore. OP already posted up that we answered his question.

But in response to the 505 performance Kit, that's over priced and there are better ways of doing it. But I'm going to assume OP isn't looking to get into all that

Not really, it's already as open and free flowing as possible. That's why, no matter what you do to it, horsepower will not increase. It is already sucking in as much air as it can. And it's not the head design, the 4.0 uses an identical design.

All about that unibody life.
