1999 WJ Performance Mods?

So the list of things that I could do to improve HorsePower on my I6 4.0L.

The things I have so far:
- Flowmaster 50 Series Muffler
- K&N Cold Air Intake 57 Gen II.


Need to get:
- Superchip Flashpaq Tuner
- Throttle Body Spacer (does it improve anything?)

What else?
Electric fan conversion?
MAP adjuster?
Larger injectors?
Ported big valve head?

Suggestions?

Re: 1999 WJ Performance Mods?

Dont buy a throttle body spacer. Waste of money. Does absolutely nothing for you.

And once you start messing with larger injectors and ported heads, you will need some custom tuning.

Re: 1999 WJ Performance Mods?

So I was searching for Turbos, and I found this one.
http://www.treadstoneperformance.com...3&phot_key=457

I was curious if I could find one with the right sizing for my year make and get it installed.

Dont I need to find out what my manifold size is?
I know a 99 Grand Cherokee with a Garret Turbocharger.

Help?!

Well for some reason Scott it gave us a completely different website, atleast for me.

Edit: You posted this: http://www.hesco.com/

As for 4.0 performance I think member named Budakane might be able to help us. I recall he has a blown 4.0
