Interested in a few of these items.

Does the exhaust and or intake require any reprogramming to avoid CEL's?
Did the exhaust set up make a notable difference in power or exhaust note?

Re: Clunking in front end

Gotcha. You originally said 'or probably poop' I couldn't figure out if the 'or' was the typo or the 'poop' was.

Thanks!

Re: Engine failure, what to do....

I'm deciding what to do, if anything at this point. I finally have the Jeep back. I will say the valve noise is very very quiet on this one. Same power, runs smooth, starts good, etc.

Re: Engine failure, what to do....

Agreed. It sounds legit, but something that should have been known. Maybe they thought a manifold would have come with the new engine? Who knows.

Re: Spare wheel options

Does anyone know if a steel 17X7.5 WJ rim would fit the WK's? If not my Mother in law has a WJ so I can try it.

Re: Spare wheel options

Not sure he is.....well, I haven't gotten far enough to see if he is. Based on what he had to do to barely make the first set fit, I'm doubting it is possible.....well fully inflated at least.
