Default how about a SUPER budget turborific setup for the heep?

anyone have any ideas?

I'm almost wondering if the downpipe flange isn't the same as a WRX up pipe and I could do a real dirty STS knockoff setup.. Just need the oil pump.

BTW it's an 89 4.0 cherokee, 5lbs of boost would just about normalize it and that's all I'd be looking to run

it's EFI dude. It's a renault/bendix efi setup. Known as RENIX to the jeepers.


I do about 20/22 mixed now, I think boost would improve it as I'm working that motor to DEATH.
