IAC relocation-fr intake to air intake(search)

Throttle body modification (trimming around the 2 barrels , search for pics)

Intake mods , also refered to a s a "keggar"(the plemun can be modded in a few different areas , like opening up around the injectors and cutting the divider out , plus trimming the runners{please search this in detail , the gains are top end mostly and specs will vary , search lots , jeepsunlimited.com , speed freaks section . This mod is not for everyone

Air intake is good , but complimented best with a free flowing exhaust , most say 3" all the way , some I`ve read 2.5 , I like mine at 3". Very restrictive p/s manifold downpipe , along with a retrictive tailpipe make the stock exhaust a low performance item , doing a complete exhaust will see a notiable improvement

Coil , wires , cap , button , all should be upgraded , and a very slightly larger gap , I believe 40 thou but , as Ive said B4 , search everything . I run MSD with good results

Also on "speed freaks" , there`s a list of HP gains from various mods , good reading
