How does this sound for my 06 WK

Hey guys i'm buying an 06 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland tomorrow that has about 70k mi on it. Im pretty new to this site, but I've spent the past three weeks going through all of the forums to find out what to do my jeep and I learned a lot.

Does this sound good to start?

I'm going to seafoam it to clean out everything since I dont know how bad the build up is.

Oil change with Mobil 1 full synthetic and new Mopar oil filter.

Put in a K&N cold air intake

An Airaid throttle body spacer (still debating weather or not to put one in)

Magnaflow Exhaust

This is just to start off, I'll prob get all this done week one. I'm just trying to make it run nice and smooth and make sure it'll last me a while before i start doing MAJOR upgrades. Would yall suggest anything else to help add some horsepower without killing my mpgs too much. I still have a good amount money left on the budget.

Thank you all for all the help I've gotten so far just from reading through threads.

I'd skip the throttle body spacer and install a catch can. Replace the PCV, MAP, EGR, and spark plugs. Service the diff fluids, coolant, and the trans fluid/filter. If you need new shocks/struts I highly recommend the Bilsteins.

Congrats on the new ride!

Well. I have an Airaid Jr Intake and a Magnaflow Cat-Back. That's a good start from there. If you want to do some major upgrades then you should upgrade your Cam, lifters, rods, springs and headers to wake it up.

Re: How does this sound for my 06 WK

Don't waste your money on an exhaust and CAI. I've Been there, done that with my 06 Overland. First thing is to buy a BIllet tech catch can for about $100. Then buy the MM 85 mm ported TB, and leave the stock intake on, as well as stock muffler. It will run much better than any Hemi with a CAI and exhaust, and is MUCH quieter. IF you can find an APexi voltage stabilizer, that is highly recommended as well. AGain, a catback and CAI is a total waste of money and just produces irritating noise.
The next most important thing IMO is install SRT front and Rear sway bars, with new sotck endlinks, new bushings and brackets. Hope you enjoy your Overland !

They don't make headers for these yet. A couple people have had custom headers made. Probably pretty costly though.
