Tries to put this diesel air filter in my xj, but I didn't realize there was a catalactic converter inside of it, or something like that. Stepdad explained it to me.
I don't think it's a catalyst, - that goes in the exhaust.
You can probably just pull/ cut it out.

I will take a picture of it, it looks like it is made in. He also said the filter (because of its size) might no help gain airflow but lose some, I don't know.
Filter size comparison,.,

Would that and the size of the filter hamper performance
... you aren't going to loose or gain any performance by sticking a giant filter or even a medium size filter in the stock location.

as long as the MAF doesn't restrict flow it won't affect the intake.

the only gains you might see are if you get truly cold air, so it can't come from under the hood. but you really can't get much more out of the 4.slo without port matching, headers, etc etc etc and even then the gains are small.

Hmmm.....
It looks like a Mass Airflow Sensor - which is, i guess, a lot like the MAP sensor (tells the computer how much air....

Anyway unless you want to try to adapt it to work with your Cherokee computer, you probably should take it out.
As far as 'too big' of air filter - I don't see how that's possible - unless you can't close the hood

Day one one the 3.5" lift install.
The rear was already done by this time, we were trying to get the LCAs onto the axle, it was a pain in the a**. The axle was all twisted up and we couldn't get the LCAs to line up with the holes. But we eventually got em. Anyone have a tip for doing that?
Anyways, more pictures to come tomorrow.
