How do I rev my engine from the engine bay?
 
As title describes, how do I rev the engine from the engine bay? I know How to do it on my dads denali, but I don't see the thing you push down on in my WJ. is it under the resonator? Also WTF is that thing called LoL? I'm refering to the thing you push down on inside the engine bay to make the engine rev.

Its called the throttle body lever arm which has the throttle cable and speed control cables attached to it and yes its under the resonator.

Ah I see, I guess I won't have access to it untill I install the K&N FIPK Intake I'm waiting for...thanks for the info.

-I can see from your sig that you have the FIPK intake, did you feel any diffrence in performance? Or did it only improve the sound of your exaust? Hopefully both LoL

It gave me a little better throttle response. The throaty sound coming from the intake when I get on it is awesome. The best thing you should do is get a hold of sleepy4.7 and order one of his FRP throttle bodies. Combo that up with the KIPK and a free flowing exhaust and you will be amazed.

I have a flowmaster 40 exaust and a TB spacer from airraid. So I think I'm set to go after UPS drops off my intake. None of my cheap friends or relatives have a intake so I Wouldnt know if it sounds throaty or not haha, but that's why i'm asking how to rev the engine via the engine bay because i'm probably going to be reving it from there when I show off to the friends & fam :thumbsup: and I'll be able to bc the FIPK intake gets rid of the resonator right? So I'll have access the the throttle body lever arm.

You can still access it with the resonator box on. I find with my intake, the sound I get when gunning down the road is much better than just revving from the engine bay.:thumbsup:

Good call stone cold. It does sound deeper hammering down while driving. Get rid of the spacer. The design makes sense but its a gimmick. Trust me on the bigger TB you have no idea what your missing and.........Ryan's price for one is excellent.
