How to Add Horsepower to your Jeep Wrangler

Easy ways to increase your Jeep’s power and torque.

You’ve been there; your 3.8L Wrangler struggling to pull you out of the roughest terrain, but you need more power! You need to replace your factory cold air filter system to achieve gains that only the maximum high-flow air filter system can provide. Only a huge inlet can let allow your Jeep to breathe the way that it should for maximum performance and increased air flow. Your Jeep Wrangler needs to improve airflow, reduce restrictions, out-perform stock, and increase power and fuel economy. Plus, it is an inexpensive and easy power add on!

1) Cold Air Intake System
