    Default 97 TJ With 2.5 Throttle Body Swap.

    So After Doing A Little Research I Wanted To Do A Few Performance Upgrades To My Wifes 97 Wrangler With A 2.5, Which We All Know Is a Way Under Powered Motor.
    And Having An Old 4.0 Intake In The Garage I Was Going To Use On My 4.2 Befor I Got My New 360 I Decided To Donate The Throttle Body To The Wifes 2.5.
    This Was A Very Simple Swap. All That Was Involved Was Rmoveing The Factory Air Cleaner And Unbolting The 2.5 Throttle Body. All The Senor Are The Same Except For The Idle Air Control Motors. So I Took The One Off The 2.5 Throttle Body And Put In On The 4.0 Throttle Body.
    The 4.0 Throttle Body Has A Much Larger Bore Than The 2.5 But Are Vertually Indentical Evary Other Way.
    Also I Figured As Long As I Had The Factory Air Cleaner Off I Would Install A Inexpinsive Cold Ait Intake As Well. Got One From Spectre Online For Around 140 Dollars Or So.
    This All Took About An Hour To Do.
    Now My Wifes Jeep Is Very Modest In Size With Just 30x9.50x15 Tires. So Nothing To Large Or Exciteing. However Living On an Island She Has To Cross Alot Of High Bridges Which Was Hard On The Little 2.5
    This Swap Has Really Braught The Little Engine To Life. Instead Of Dropping Down To 60 Or Sometimes Evan 55 Miles Per Hour On The Bridges I Can Now Run Them At 75mph With Out Any Trouble.
    Wife Is Very Exciteed To Drive It Around Now, And Being Able To Keep It Up With Traffic.
    Just A Little Something I Thaught I would Share. Some Of You May Know This And Some Of The Young Guys May Not. But It really Does Work.
