List of Parts I need to buy
 
Ok, so I bought a nice black 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4.7 with the Leather seat upholstery, Boston Acoustics audio system, QUADRA-TRAC II FULL-TIME,ACTIVE 4WD & LUXURY GROUP options in October 2010 with 100,000 miles (It now has 120,000 miles) and have finally decided to update/upgrade almost everything. I won't be doing any lifting or lowering because I prefer the stock height and do not do any offroading. I drive mainly on paved streets and highways and my ride to be as comfy as a cadillac lol.

My mechanical expertise is next to none but have been lurking on these forums for quite some time and you guys have taught me a lot. These are the parts I will be buying in the coming weeks and would like your advice!

1. Goodyear Serpentine Belt
2. OMIX-ADA IAC Valve
3. AIRTEX / WELLS MAP Sensor
4. IRTEX / WELLS TPS Sensor
5. FRAM Part AIR FreshBreeze Cabin Air Filter
6. AIRTEX / WELLS Ignition Coil
7. CHAMPION Copper Plus Sparkplugs
8. A-1 CARDONE CARDONE Service Plus Power Steering Filter
9. AIRTEX / WELLS EGR Valve or OMIX-ADA EGR Valve (60$ more)
10. AIRTEX / WELLS PCV Valve or OMIX-ADA PCV Valve for 20$ more
11. Full magnaflow catback exhaust
12. Airaid PowerWire
13. Throttle power feels very weak lately in the low end, anything to change when it comes to the fuel pump or around it?
14. What else can I upgrade concerning Engine Performance, Intake and Exhaust?
15. Catch Can

I basically want to upgrade everything!

I am also confused in which order to begin with so I can save on labour, I have no choice but to bring the parts to the stealership because I dont trust my local old school mechanics with some stuff.

Thank you!

New additions:

1a: Fastman Ported Throttle body

You can delete this totally worthless snake-oil product from your list...

Honestly, most of the items you have on this list are relatively simple replacements. even if you take a weekend to do it all, you'll save a large sum of money.

How about a Fastman Throttle Body? I heard they are pretty good and the throttle will be much more responsive if you pair it with a CAI.

I changed my rear sway bar links with Moog ones prior to learning about the STR8 ones, now I need to change the front ones, which brand shall I put if I want a comfier ride, STR8, Stock or Moog? Or another brand? Thanks.

I did lengthy back to back testing with both my stock TB (kept clean) and my brand new ported TB. comparing performance with stock intake and with CAI. The stock intake is by far better, and the CAI makes it run worse than stock with both TB's.
