Jet Chip

Has anybody bought the Jet Chip for the Wrangler? I'm thinking of buying one and was wondering if it was worth it. I have a 2.5L. Thanks for any help

While it'd help a bit at the drag strip where you drive at WOT and shift at your tach's red line, you won't notice a thing around town... aside from a slightly lighter wallet from having to pay for higher octane gas to keep your engine from pinging after installing it.

How about a Airaid Intake or a Pacesetter Cat-Back Exhuast?

While headers might help, neither of those will help. The TJ's engine already breathes fine through its very non-restrictive air intake so neither a throttle body spacer nor a K&N air filter (Airraid) will help in the least. A cat-back might help high-end HP a little but that's it, you wouldn't notice any performance difference around town. It might even cause a bit of a low-end torque loss.
