it DOES help with off idle throttle response, more air available at the plenum will always help with that.(that's why the keg is so much better at off idle torque than the single and dual plane m1 and f1 intakes.)

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Makes sense.

That makes no sense. The keg is better at low rpm because of runner length and volume. It has nothing to do with anything before the throttle body. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you are trying to say?

Should be plugged into the computer on the passenger side firewall behind the coolant reservoir.

No performance chips are worth a damn on the ZJ unless it's a factory Mopar performance pcm.

You are. I was referring to the plenum volume difference between the keg and other intakes.
Slight increase in before throttle plate static volume does help of idle response as well, but doesn't add power, it change where the power is though.
