This is a Picture Guide to Nutter Bypass

If your anything like me, not mechanically inclidned, then hopefully you'll appreciate my process of the nutter bypass. This seemed way over my head, but this is the easiest thing you can really do to help the performance. My jeep '90 4.2 increased beyond my expectations.

I have never done anything remotely similar to this. This took me 4 hours because I was VERY methodical in what I was doing, tracing wire 3 times to make sure, checking the link (in step 1) 4 & 5 times before I cut a wire "just to make sure" I really didn't want to screw the pooch on this. I did it with 100% success

The most time consuming and problematic part of the enitre process is getting the wires back in the loom. Which is the most mindless part, which is good!

Seriously, ANYONE can do this! If I can do it... YOU can do it.

Good pics When I did the nutter on my old 4.2, I just ran 2 new wires along the firewall from the distributor to the ICM and didn't bother messing around with the loom. It's a lot easier that way, if you're not real worried about making it look stock.

Same with me. I can always go back and wire them back into the loom pretty quickly if necessary.

I'd say sticky this thing...I would have worried a LOT less if I had this to work from.

Excellent post. Can I make one suggestion? Instead of pulling all those wires from the loom, just go up about halfway between the distributor and the firewall, and look in the loom. You'll see the orange/purple pair twisted in there. Just pull out a few inches and splice there. I took two 16-gauge wires and twisted them lightly, then stuffed them in the loom. I found it easier to put the two wires in instead of the whole thing. I unsnapped the loom holders one at a time as I fed the wires in.

Thanks for the positive feedback, I didn't really know what the wires did in the loom but now that I know they are twised and go into the firewall, it would be easier to cut them closer to the dist. plug rather than pulling the enitre loom off. But I've seen posts where people ran into a problem of the wires changing colors on them. So I just wanted to be sure of what I was cutting. I would definitly trade a little more work putting the wires back in the loom to ensure that I did cut the right wires and did all this correctly.

Thanks guys, really good tips coming through. If you have more tips please post them, I really could have used this post last Sunday too. How do you propose this as a sticky?

I do not think this should be a sticky souly because the sticky pile is getting big. HOWEVER, I do think that this should be added to the FAQ section.


Excellent writeup man.

It has been done already. Just waiting for a response. None of the YJ mods are on right now.

There is a technical write up section too. This would find a good home there.

Bypasses the computer in the 4.2, like he said.

But, since you have the 2.5, you needn't worry. No crappy spaghetti maze of emissions hoses to wade through
