You mean like this ... ?
Good advice. As far as cleaning the injectors, the only injector cleaner that's widely approved around here is Seafoam and you can just drop a can of that in the gas tank to help clean the fuel system. That's the simplest thing to do.In all seriousness, the easiest way to gain power is just to keep your car in good condition. Change the fuel filter when you get it, that can easily free up lost ponies since it will restrict flow. Fresh oil/Filter change, new air filter,don't go with a K&N, people swear by them but i don't, they do "flow" better but do not filter as well. It's simple science, better flow means you are filtering less. New plugs and wires, as well as running some injector cleaner through will get your car up on tip-top performance. I am not sure injector cleaner actually does anything, might just be a placebo effect. Spend money on bringing the chassis back to stock/better than stock, replace parts that are worn out, invest in a J mod and a transmission cooler, put in 3.55 gears. And you will have a car that will be bullet proof. If you got a 1996/1997 invest in a replacement intake manifold for the vehicle, either a NPI version or a PI, either one will be fine, PI will give you a bit of power over NPI but is not as simple to install.
Remember, it is a nearly 2 ton car with a 1990s V8 engine, if you improve the handling of the vehicle you will be able to go faster around curves and have more fun.
I use B12 Chemtool or Seafoam, depending on my mood. I normally fill with Exxon fuel, as they are the cheapest near me. May switch to Speedway due to their rewards program, they just started to move in and replace Hess.Good advice.

So just to be sure I'm envisioning this right, you cut away most of the lower box, leaving just enough of the area that surrounds the filter to hold it in place presumably? With that setup, as Ralph said, you're sucking in more hot engine bay air.Ralph I cut away most of the lower half of the air filter box. This leaves the square filter exposed to open air. Same as original but its not tunneled and choked through the silencer. It still lays down the same and now there is only the oval hole in the sheet metal below the air filter. Some day I may make that oval hole bigger. Hey it was free and I can go back to stock with a spare bottom half for the filter box in storage.
Having had freer flowing exhaust in the past I think I can say the exhaust is the current restriction now.
Haha, no worries about the jail, cops here in Estonia are more interested what kind of a car it is than what's wrong with the exhaust 8) The sound is just awsome, I love it. First I did it without this metal jar filled with fireproof rockwool and it was way too loud, than I made lot's of holes in pipes, rolled it with rockwool and a casing from a B4 AUDI which btw fits like it was there and the sounds & looks like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg0j-U8arJMDirthouse how is the noise? I would have at least routed it to the passenger side. It looks like you are ready for more hardcore mods like programs, fuel pumps, slick tires, 42 lb fuel injectors etc.
Maybe get a "get out of jail free" card too. Have fun.
