Hello for UK

Hi all ,
I m from the uk England, I ve got a 2003 Black WJ 4.7 OVERLAND which we ve had since 05 , its still only done 25 k miles ( we only really use it in the summer months for towing )

The only mods ive done so far is to fit squenical LPG sytem , this works great and saves lots of money too , but as lpg is 110 octane im looking for advice for increasd performance, the normal what really works and whats B/S
, After looking thou your site it seems CIA ( and exhaust and ecu tune poss throttle body too. should help it go a bit better .

Is the superchip flash 3875 the only one which works on my WJ as i really want to add approx 4 to 6 degrees advance to max the LPG , can any one do a custom tune for lpg ie a 93 +++ tune?
and i looked on the bwoody site , but could nt see a cai for a WJ so is it K&N, or ebay cold air in take systems , or i could have a go at making one myself !

Re: Hello for UK

Welcome!

I made my own CAI cause I wasn't forking out 250 for a plastic tube, but then again I am Scottish!

I just picked up some pipe etc and stuck a filter on. Works perfectly and sounds awesome. Ported and polished my TB too. What a difference!

Ha ha ha! Aye LPG is ideal for us Scots. I'm not running it in my present Jeep, however I did have it in a XJ I hd a few years ago.

Come to think of it, I don't have any pics of my intake and I've had it for months! I'll need to get some up. The TB was easy enough to do. I used a honing tool and used that to get rid of most of the material and thenused a dremel to get an edge on the plate. I then polished it using a kit, that contains bars (look like plasticine) and various mops and heads. Brought it up nice and shiny. If I recall correctly, you can get pretty extensive kits from a site which I think is called 'perfectpolishing'. You can of course pick up cheaper kits on ebay fo about 20, which is what I did (Scottish, remember?)

You could of course, take it to a shop and have them do it. Shouldn't cost more than 50 max. I probably spent more doing it myself, by the time I'd bought everything I needed, but I got much more satisfaction doing it myself. Plus, all the polishing stuff I've got left has been put to good use. I made 30 polishing a set of carbs for an old MG BGT! And I plan on polishing bits in my engine bay too.

For the intake, I scoured ebay for the correct size of pipes, silicon connectors etc and just bunged on a filter. I know I'm tight, but I just couldn't jusify the 250 for the K&N set up. The difference in sound is amazing and once I've got my exhaustdone it'll be even better!

I've definitely noticed a difference though, much more 'peppy'.

You should check out 'flyin Ryan' on here, he's the guy to talk to. He has a post somewhere, showing how to do the TB. That's where I got my info from
