Might check this website: http://www.jeep4.0performance.4mg.com/
Also, you have the old Renix injection system. The throttle body is different than the newer ones (HOs). Check the website for a DIY port and polish. I think its 8-12 hours for a port and polish. You could just do a port match, polish the short side radius and round off the valve stem bosses.
You can also use the Mopar performance head gasket and shave .010 off your head to bump up the compression to about 9.1.
