Gas/air ratio

I have an 05 TJ, 4L, bolted on new air intake, throttle body spacer, stage one chip. I'm wondering if I need to reflash the CPU to ensure proper gas to air ratio. Sub question, new MAP sensor required?

Also, anyone running headers to a cat-back exhaust? If so, pros & cons?

No, the current sensors should allow the AFR to run around stoichiometric (14.7)

Cool, so you went a lil over my head but if I understand you correctly, the CPU will adjust itself. In other words the electronics will do their jobs and correct the ratio. Thanks for the input!

Speed density systems can only make small adjustments to fuel trim and they only do that on a warm engine and other than wide open throttle (closed loop). Basically saying you can make minor engine enhancements, or add minor bolt-ons to the engine and the computer may be able to compensate as long as the oxygen sensor picks up the difference. The oxegon sensor is not used on a cold engine or during wide open throttle.

I wouldn't worry about it. Those aftermarket intakes on most vehicles don't make any difference other than sound anyway.

I would agree just changed back from a cold air pod filter to the standard air box concerned the after market pod no suited too off road use with no differences apart from sound .. !
