Performance Chip worth $$$ in TJ?

I have a 97 TJ Sport, 4 liter, 5 speed, 5 inch suspension and 2 inch body lift, Warn XD9000i, Borla Stainless header and Cat-back, K&N filter and 35" Super Swamper SXs. I have changed gears and still want a little more power. I am wondering if anyone has put in a JET or HyperTech computer chip in their 4.0. Does anyone have any input about whether it is worth the expense. All info would be helpful. Thanks, Luke

Re: Performance Chip worth $$$ in TJ?

I just bought a 2000 TJ and was wondering the same thing. But I've heard that you have to use premium unleaded, and with the price of gas now, any benefits would probably not make up for the added expense of the fuel. That's just my opinion though. That's all I can add, sorry!

Re: Performance Chip worth $$$ in TJ?

YES do it, You are half way there Get a low restriction cat (like random tech),Get that restrictor out of your air intake. Now you have a really good intake system to match a good exhaust system. I tossed in an accel coil, bigger wires and platinum plugs to help with my chip. Yeah you have to use premium but its worth it. Im considering the throttle body spacer and maybe the ported throttle body also. Any of these mods by them selves Id say arent worth squat.
But together they make up for the added weight of all my bolt-ons.
