Jeeps are not a vehicle that you choose for speed. One advantage is you can drive this vehicle on rough terrain. However, Jeeps are fully loaded, including 260ft-lb. of torque, and are equipped with a 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 285 hp. These features add to the vehicle’s power instead of speed. Read on to discover how modifying the vehicle with Jeep Wrangler JK parts and accessories can add to its power.
Throttle Body Spacers
If you have an older Jeep Wrangler, then you may want to consider a throttle body spacer mod. It is a thick metal plate that increases air velocity and affects fuel atomization. If you put a throttle body spacer in your Jeep, then you may see a slight increase in miles per gallon and horsepower.
Swapping out Jeep Wrangler JK parts and accessories like fuel injectors can improve fuel atomization. An improved atomization allows for a smoother idle and a cleaner burn. Some mechanics say that this modification also improves horsepower and fuel economy.
Stock Exhaust System
Your Jeep may have more horsepower potential with a stock exhaust system mod. It does not really work to swap the exhaust manifold for headers. A jeep comes from the manufacturer stocked with a free-flow exhaust, which works similar to a header. It is only practical to make this replacement unless the manifold is damaged on the vehicle.
If you make any of these modifications, then you will enjoy driving your Jeep. It helps to find a company that can supply unlimited parts and accessories.
