Cheap but benifical modifications

What are a few cheap but beneficial modifications to increase HP of a 2006 4.0L motor?

Re: Cheap but benifical modifications

I'd get the tuner next. The 4.0's respond to bolt on mods much better than the previous 94-04 3.8/3.9's. I'm surprised you have the CAI without a tune. Most require a tune and the ones that don't usually don't offer many gains.

A tuner will take full advantage of those bolt ons ~ exhaust, CAI, pulley etc, wake up your transmission (auto), and do numerous other things like adjust after tire or gear changes.
