Try these


Benwa balls

I have five linked medium benwa balls only used twice...I bought them for the wife and she didn't care for them, so I tried them once. I can honestly say they weren't for me either. My loss your gain. $75 obo. I know people that like them really like them, I just couldn't get used to them. Maybe I need small ones?

off the line or when you're trying to downshift? Mine had an issue of starting off in second off the line so it was gutless. Sticky gov. Try putting it in the gears manually and see if it makes a difference. If its not downshifting than TV cable? If it is downshifting but still slow, it may have to do with 33 and 3.73 lol.

X2 on the cat.
If it still has the catalytic convertor on it/ may be clogged? Had it happen on a ford once. had no balls till I cut the pipe to find out. Made a big difference.

If there is a pre cat O2, you can pull it out and see if it works better and check for a plugged cat.

I'd pull the o2 and see if it picks up power. Did yas check fuel pressure? Weres the initial timing set?

You can't adjust initial timing on a 4.0.

I know it sounds obvious but did you check the air filter? Next easiest would be fuel pressure and then the fuel filter then the cat.
