Get a few hundred miles on it with a couple of quick oil changes to give it a chance to loosen any sticky
rings. Then do a compression check. Unless the bottom end is in decent shape I wouldn't recomend
too many bolt on HP fixes. you would probably not gain much from it and/or would blow the ring out if you
What you can do depends on what your state will allow. As far as I know, only the Thorely header is CARB
certified. check to see what your state requires before buying. A flow thru CAT won't hurt performance like
the screen type, and they are available in the small size a zook uses, as a universal CAT.
If you just have to meet tailpipe emmissions talk to sarge about getting one of his tweeked webers and intakes.
He is good at getting the setup right.
The stock springs do suck, but at static ride height they are suposed to be flat (from the factory). Lots
of options here. but first define what you want out of the rig. that will help you select a more suitable
solution for your particular application. SPOA or SPUA, rears up front, CJ/YJ, Aftermarket springs, the list is
long! Let your requirements drive the choice. And of course shock and steering mods go hand in hand with
ride height changes.
