  • need more POWER

    hey its my 1st jeep its a 2.5l its got 33/12.50/15s and ireally need more POWER and would really appreciate any tips that really work and where to get them would a electric fan make any difference and would it keep it cool what about exhaust 2.5 or 3" what about a K&N cone filter im just throwing a few things out there ?

    Welcome to MJR.

    Exhaust is fine. K&N's are garbage and let more dust in then they filter. What you really need is new gearing. 4.88's will do nicely.

      4.88 will be the ticket.... I added all the fun stuff to my 4 popper after the gears, you may be suprised how much power that little motor really has, it's no 4.0, but it'll serve you well if set up right.

        Go get yourself a electric cooling fan outta a oldschool caddy. You will also need a thermostat switch deally to turn the fan on and off, you can get them at Autozone or Napa.
        You also probably want to get a header and exhaust... the stock 2.5l headers have a nasty habit of cracking, mine did, havent replaced it yet....

        EDIT: ...wait... are you saying your running 33's on a stock motor stock gears?!?! I didnt think the 4banger could turn them stock!!!! Betya thats a pooch and a half, no wonder your looking for more power!

          Dude! If you really wanna go radical, there is a company that offers low end torque CAMS! (0.435 lift) for 4bangers. www.
          By the way if you MUD off-road a 4 banger is the best choice, it is very light so your front end will not sink, as opposed to the 6 cyls. I've had to pull a few out !!
