More absorbent! Brighter whites! Now 50 percent bigger! Better tasting! We've all heard hard-sell ad jargon before and have, on occasion, even bought into the hype. Disappointment becomes your only purchase, though, when you discover that product and propaganda don't necessarily equate.


More horsepower! Twenty-six percent more airflow! More responsiveness! Again, nothing you haven't heard before, right? The difference this time is that K&N's Generation II Filtercharger Fuel-Injection Performance Kit actually delivers as advertised. And we're not talking about a barely noticeable improvement-no measly couple hundredths of a second-our '94 Grand Cherokee tester quickened its zero-60 elapsed time from 9.84 to 9.09 seconds, for a very noticeable 3/4-second gain.

K&N's kit (PN 57-1506) fits '93-'97 Grand Cherokees equipped with the 5.2L V-8 and it's CARB exempt. You'll need about an hour for installation, along with 7/16-, 1/2-, 3/4-inch wrenches, a 10mm wrench, and 3/16- and 5/32-inch Allen wrenches.


Follow along as we show you how to make your five-point-two Grand than new! Improved! More responsive!
