Performance upgrades?

Hey guys I was thinking about buffing up my 5.2L in my ZJ, I was wondering what upgrades are there that are good for the engine that are common besides an air intake and an exhaust system

hi, as you said ari intake and exhaust (muffler and cat, but do not remove the cat)...after that you can take a tuner (like an sct tuner) and a 2x50 TB.

Headers, full exhaust, kegger mod or newer 5.2 manifold, handheld tuner and a mild cam would make for healthy 5.2.
