Air restrictor?? Can't find it....

Does anyone know if the 88's were made with restrictor??
I have the stock 6 4.2L from 88 and I can't seem to find the restrictor

I don't think it applies to your engine and year.

to tell ya the truth tho, it could go both ways, my jeep ran worse after doing this for like a week, i dont know if it was cuz i have a k&N and the cpu was having trouble with all the airflow or what, but its finally back to normal, and thats it -- normal, i saw a boost with the k&n but not so much this mod, and i have both restrictors out

Your engine is newer and different than mine....I guess mine doesn't have the restrictor...it's the 4.2, or maybe the guy before me took it out already...but he never wheeled it, and didn't seem like the kinda guy that would give a ****.

Oh well...
but any pics on with the K&N would be nice...after I get my lift this week, then that's the next thing I wanna do...
