ok, so I read on the other site, that a guy that is selling his xj did an intake manifold swat to a 99 manifold , he has a 92 I think, and nick posted that was a 40hp swapt,, is it really that good of a swap, whats the diferencess between those two manifolds and if its true will that swap work on my 95 too?

I'm digging all the info up on this topic.(lost it with my last computer restore) Basically what it comes down to is 99 and newer intake is more "rounded" for flow. I'll have to find the write up for you guys to read. Out of cheep mods it's one of the best with large gains I've found...

Yeah you also have to get the power steering pump assembly so it will fit properly..It should bolt right up.
wait what, I need to change the PS for the manifold to fit?

Not sure I have yet to try this up grade, But I have heard wit the new bracket(found on donor rig) you can make your PS pump work....

yeah, but I dont find donors any easy here in PR so I would need to buy one, also not too easy to find in a JY so Ill try to not waste so many money,, I can just search real hard to find a manifold and grind it, and fit it in,, bc I like this mod

The reason for the new brackets is the newer manifold is smaller in space, you'd have to "build" a bracket not cut to make it work... You can also use a manifold from a TJ, WJ or XJ of '99 or newer..
