The one rod I have is just a little snug in it. 1 1/4 would have been better. But this will do

The intake on my car is made of PVC. Shhh... No one knows. It's pretty common among B body guys with 94-96 cars.



It's held up like that for years now. I'm sure it has a little to do with me only putting about 2000 miles on my car in the last 6 years though.

I'm gonna guess there's a major restriction there and PVC is a cheap fix to it?

Yup, as well as where you see the little chrome plug with the bow tie on it. They call it the "first base and home plate delete." It's more or less one of the first mods done by most B body enthusiasts.

Scored enough '703 injectors to swap my 5.2 and my buddies 4.0. Just need to get rebuild kits and slap 'em in.

Gotta love half off day at the junkyard, only $3.50 an injector.

His: '00 WJ 4.7 Limited- Some stuff

Hers: '03 WJ 4.7 Laredo- Some more stuff

Changed my oil with Shell Rotella T6 5W-40 and a Mopar filter Then knocked ANOTHER hole in my muffler when my buddy was checking out my brakes. He forgot to put our lift supports down (hard to explain), and all I know is, when they are under the rear axle and you back up into them, they punch decent sized holes in exhaust components Sounds like it may've knocked a baffle loose. So, I've decided to weld my catalytic converter on to replace the stupid-a** clamps the PO used, cut out my muffler, and straight-pipe it past the cat until I can scrape together enough dough to get myself another Flowmaster Super 44. Had one on my last ZJ and it sounded MEAN! And that was on a 4.0, so I really want to hear how it sounds on a 5.9

That was my day. Jeep runs like a dream, sounds like crap now. Rattles all over the place. Oh yeah! Found two brand spankin' new OME front shocks on a Cherokee at the JY while we were wheeling my buddy's "offroad minivan" (Pontiac Montana, Front-wheel drive, totally stock, oh god!). They are in pristine condition, even the hardware and bushings look new! My question is, will they work on my ZJ? I can't imagine they would, since my ZJ probably weighs 1-2k lbs more than the Cherokee, but I still wanna try since the front ends on both the XJ and ZJ are identical. Worth a shot, right? And, they're free, so what do I have to lose? The Yard is turning into a Superfund site anyway, so he figures he doesn't have anything to lose... His loss, my gain, as Craigslist would say

As Nick stated, it's in my Caprice. It's not an LT1 though. It's an L99, the LT1s little sibling. It's a 4.3L V8. I wish my car had the 5.7L.
