Ehh somewhat. Also saw a 1 mpg increase as well too. Not to mention it sounds way cool

When I built my cold air intake it didnt make a sweeet noise! Im jealous. Maybe my YJ was already too loud.

The reason I ask is because i was looking at the Rustys XJ performace kit, which has the TB spacer, the intake and a new exhaust

Got my H4s installed and aimed yesterday, I would totally recommend this upgrade to anyone, the H4s are brighter and have a better pattern than the sealed beams.

On a whim 4 nights ago i bid $5.00 on a zj vic on eBay, I ended up being the only bidder, so the sale price was $0.01 and I only had to pay shipping. I was planning on doing something similar to el_pedro on page 13 of the xj interior mods thread.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f177/...0/index13.html

Now that it is here, i can't get it to do anything, it wont turn on or light up, nothing, Ive tried several different wiring configurations.


Heres the wiring diagram Ive been using:




And heres the unit itself:






And I am in no way an electrical engineer, so i have no idea what is going on, and at this point im basically just trying to get it to turn on...

So does anyone have any ideas?

I had planned on putting it under the switch panel in the center control area, its definitely gonna involve some modification, Im gonna have to cut the tabs off of it and build a custom enclosure for it, as well as make the hole in the plastic piece that surrounds all of the controls.
