Thanks

the best price i can find right now online is around 600 (http://www.thoroughbreddiesel.com/ed...ail_jammer.htm), when I bought mine I found a place that had it listed for about 500 and I printed out their website and brought it to 4wheelparts where they honored the price match and so I got it all for about 500.

Anyone put a throttle body spacer like "air raid' under it? Or would it not be advised?

Don't believe the ads. For the type of throttle body the TJ uses, a TB spacer won't do a thing. Spacers can really help underneath carburtetors and perhaps under throttle-body injection type systems, which our TJ does not use of course, but they don't help with our kind of throttle body. Only air passes through our throttle body, no fuel at all... so all you're doing is creating a longer air path which doesn't help in the least.

Thanks, just curious I have other mods to complete. I would like to see some actual dyno results before making a purchase like this if anyone has access, and time?

Well, I should know Tuesday evening. Just placed my order yesterday at 4wdparts.
No dyno in my area ( I dont think ) but will see if I can do some vids of 0-60 and maybe some idle and exhaust shots just for before-and-afters.
I'll do a seperate thread to add as a product review and link to it here.

Do the latest Edge TB's still have the whistling noise issue or has that been fixed?

Well, I picked mine up from 4wdparts and didn't wait to get back home to install it. There is no whistle on mine so it seems that Edge has taken care of that.

Install was straight forward, though I skipped the part where I am supposed to use the new hex bolts Edge supplied to fasten connections up to the new throttle body. I put everything on with the OEM bolts and then realized my mistake when one of the OEMs was TOO long to screw in all the way. Due to the wider bore the wall is thinner and thus the OEM bolts are too long to use.

When I first turned the engine over it sounded like a little jet sitting under my hood. The cold air intake allows alot of the throttle body sound to pass through it.

I pulled out of the parking lot and IMMEDIATELY found that I had to pretty much STAND on the brake pedal to keep from moving forward at the stop light. It idled at about 1100RPM but felt like I was toeing the line waiting for the tree lights to turn green and go for a hole shot!

I jumped on it a little bit and the jet engine sound faded away as the plenum opened up more. I definitely had more throttle response and went through the gears a little quicker.

I do, however, feel that I have lost a little power between 55-70mph.
Overall I don't feel ripped off for the money I paid since this will be only the first step in the whole beginning to end exhaust overhaul.

Next is headers and Magnaflow exhaust.

Why does your Jeep idle at 1100 rpms? That's a lot higher than it should be, isn't it?

Sorry, I should have updated that. The throttle cable may have stuck or something, it idles at 700 or so now, much better.

Still, I wonder about the loss at the higher MPHs.

I may unplug the module and run with the cai and the throttle body to see what I get.
