Ooh, I went to bed early to wake up at 4:30 to all of these hostilities! Then I read the line about "pictures", ran out ripped the engine out of my Compass, took my saws all and made a cutaway view for the engine lovers out there, then came back in and saw that I had some better pics from the Chicago Auto show. So here they are, they may help someone out there.

To casm: it looks like they started with your color scheme!

Lets try and remember that nobody HAS to be here, we're all here for the ENJOYMENT of it. I know, I've had my days, too. Both simple and strange ideas have created some great things.

Now, where did I put that epoxy, gotta glue a few pieces back together

Ok everyone, calm down.

Casm is correct that all new/current Jeeps use a direct coil-on-plug ignition system so there are no ignition wires. Key M is right that going to a so-called "performance" spark plug will be a waste of $$$ as they won't make a noticeable difference in how an engine will run over any good quality "normal" spark plug.

However... some just like to install "dress up" mods that don't help performance but they feel they make the engine look different from everyone else's. Not a bad thing, but I guess I wouldn't do that kind of mod either... but still, not a bad thing.

All in all, I think a few here were only trying to help the OP not waste his money on mods that are only cosmetic in nature. I'm tempted to say do the same thing in the TJ forum... but to each his own.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
