Want more horsepower, better throttle response, and improved acceleration? A Rugged Ridge Air Intake System can boost your performance, while helping you keep extra cash in your wallet. Our polished aluminum mandrel bent intake tube replaces the restrictive factory air box to help improve fuel economy and performance. A black powder coated heat shield separates the filter from engine heat, dirt and debris, as cold air is drawn through a high-flow conical air filter. Unlike other reusable air filters, our dry panel design never needs oiling, which keeps your air flow sensor from being damaged by excess oil! The simple bolt on installation gives you power you can feel, adding up to 10HP and 12ft lbs. or torque, depending on application.
The kit contained parts that did not fit together and the rubber intake hose had a very loose fit to the throttle body. The only good thing is that the kit had lots of extra parts. It was if they through an air filter, bracket, tube and rubber hoses in a box with enough spare junk that an intuitive jerry rigger could make something out of it.
Easy to install, added power to the low end and helped out the high end on my 2.5L 4 cyl.
does this fit a 1989 yj with 2.5 4cyl engine.

Unfortunately, this air intake will not fit your 1989 YJ because it uses throttle body injection. In 1991, Jeep started using multi-port fuel injection on the 2.5L YJ, allowing for the use of a cold air intake. For your application, you may want to look into aftermarket air filters such as this synthetic air filter by rugged ridge: http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Engine-Performance/Synthetic-Air-Filter-by-Rugged-Ridge-for-Jeep.aspx?t_c=74&t_s=6&t_pt=3147&t_pn=RUG17752.03 Thanks!
