Do you know anything about lifting with bigger leafspring shackles?

Speaking of cheap mods. I remember reading somewhere a while ago that putting a stock ZJ V8 airbox in a YJ will give it a little more kick. I can't find it anywhere now but is that true? I can't see just having a bigger box giving it any more power, althogh I do have an aftermarket header kit and bigger diameter exhaust on it so maybe....
