thesteve posted as I was writing my post above. It looks as though Edge is making correctons to the TB. It also sounds like it still isn't enough???

thesteve, am I correct in saying that your's is acceptable now? IS there ANY whistle or just acceptable?

I sent mine back to edge and they replaced it with one that they fixed. I have absolutely no whistle!

One thing for you owners of early '97 TJs like I am. The early '97 uses the same connectors as the '95 YJ and the Edge connectors will not fit even if it claims to fit the '97... which means it will fit the "late" '97, just not the early versions of the '97. How to tell? You really can't, just be careful if your '97 was made in early to mid-1996.

Haha, their 2005-2006 kit won't fit the connectors on my wife's 2005 TJ so I can certainly understand why the 1997 kit doesn't work on 1997 TJs.

Must be they don't don't have a good handle on what Jeeps have what connectors. Also, what is it for anyway, probably just a resistor to trick the IAT to think the air coming in is colder so it can advance timing a degree or two. I'll have to plug in my ODB2 computer and take before/after readings from the IAT sensor and the MAP sensor and see what timing advance is.

Categorically false. I've run nothing but 87 octane since I installed it.

really like mine......an NO you can use regular gas. Nothing but good things to say about it. I noticed the most difference on the highway, I can use 6th again. Probably the only really "bad" thing you will hear about this kit is the whistling sound you will get out of the intake, it can get pretty loud. Never bothered me though. But every one in a while some "know-it-all" will stop me at a gas station or parking lot and say "you might check your serpentine belt tensioner, sounds like the bearings are going out".......this has happened to me 4 times.... BTW, I have a 6-speed and 3.73's on 32''s.

I, too, have heard about the whistle. I just wanted to hear from any owner of this kit if it is as good as the advertisements say.
I think I would like to team this kit up with a good free-flow cat and exhaust.

Any other input?

I have a K&N FIPK intake, and 50 series flowmaster also.......all work great together and the sound is a definite plus. people on this site will say all of it is a waste of money, but it all works well in my opinion. Besides I'm a bargain shopper. Just all the parts I've put on my jeep are from Ebay or from people on this site, there are a few exceptions.

For instance...
I got my flowmaster from a guy off this site for $50 and installed it myself
My K&N was off Ebay...paid $125 new in box
and the Trail jammer kit I bought used off ebay (was still like new) for $300.

Just look around, there are still good deals to be found. I don't pay retail whenever possible. IF I did I'd be BROKE because of my jeep.

If anyone is looking for the most bang for your buck, then the trail jammer is right up your alley. If you have time or money, then re-gear. I am very happy with this product and I am running 35 mickey thompson baja claw radials. They are heavy and it's nice to have 5th gear back. Oh yeah it is really easy, and if you have a throttle body spacer on, it cancels out that whistle. It did to mine anyway. So I guess throttle body spacers can still serve a purpose. I used a rustys offroad TBS.
