aftermarket exhaust would be the next logical step given what you've already done.

Actually I'd say the next step is taking off the throttle body spacer, and then adding exhaust. After that, a bored out throttle body.

Chips are useless on Grands, the stock computer adapts to and overrides the new programming.

Hey 88, does that apply to a 97 I6 and Hypertech Max Energy also?

Most likely. A good rule of thumb is any chip is useless on any Jeep. Programmers can be a different story, as these actually change stock settings. Some Jeeps also have performance ECU replacements available.
