Save your money. I've heard from a couple of people that it improved their throttle response. It's not worth it. You'll get more from doing the deck plate mod.

My friend tried one of these about 3 years ago on his Jeep Cherokee and didn't notice a difference. My opinion is don't waste your money.

Where can you get the deckplate kit, and how much does it run? I have a 2.7l and will try anything for a couple more horsies here and there!

go to a boat store that sells marine supplies.ask for a 3inch deckplate.
basically,all it is,is a hole with a screw on lid.
then you cut a hole in the airbox(to fit the deckplate) seal it with sensor safe silicone stuff and voila!:clap:

Would you happen to have a brand name or know where I can get a sensor safe silicone. The rubber seal inside my airbox is coming off, I need to glue it back on.

I have the 2.7, and the deckplate mod didn't look to easy to do on my truck. Most people do it on the 3.4 because the front of the airbox is flat. Mine has ridges on it, so the deckplate would require some time to put in.

I did the deck plate mod with a black threaded pipe end, same idea but I managed to get it in black so it blends in, kinda nice having it somewhat hidden when smog time comes around.... California is kinda nutty about that kind of stuff
