Im looking to add a little extra power and heard a cold air intake can do just that. Is it worth adding one? I also want a new exhaust system what should I go with? want something with a little sound but nothing obnoxious. Where can I get a new center console? The original doesn't have an arm rest and is kind annoying. I am a super noob when it comes to car stuff. Please help! Furthermore, what are somethings that probably need replacing. The car hasn't had much work done to it almost all original.

Yo ipreece1,
Welcome!

I'll move this thread to noobie section for better visibility.

Here's Air Filter Tube & Box Insulation in a 94 5.0; Ken used Reflectix Insulation, avail @ Lowes. etc. ST16025 - 16" x 25 feet. miesk5 Note; Ken installed the K&N® & removed da cold air intake tube that runs to the top of the radiator; but he could have installed the intake tube section later.

Some use the 4.9 intake for better flow.

Some exhaust system installations for example:

I'm new to the bronco game too, this is a great site with TONS of content on whatever you're thinking. Definitely check out all the sticky threads.

I just did a drop in K&N filter and wrapped the intake tubes and air box with insulated tape, I felt a difference and IMO don't waste the money on a whole new intake system. Plenty of content on here about that. Check this out:

The only car I ever got any kind of SOTP results from with a CAI was a '97 Camaro V6. Gave it better throttle response and a better sounding engine. Otherwise the consensus is that CAI is a big waste of time and money.
