CAI or just a K&N filter?

Is the extra bucks for a CAI really worth it or do you basically get the same results with a K&N in the stock box? Being a 4.7 the only mod is exhaust.

It's most likely the pressure switch. These are notorious for it.
Throw a mechanical gauge on it to verify pressure, if it's good proceed to buy a new pressure switch, preferably an oem Mopar part.

When you buy a reman you need to be sure they perform the upgrades as part of the build. Power train products are a good choice.

Don't waste your money on a used motor.
Buy a reman with upgrades. Guestimate is around 2500 plus labor. Just put the same year motor back in. 2002 is an oddball transition year.

Ebay. I bought a few just because I wasn't exactly sure about compatibility. But from what I gather anything Jeep/Dodge 4.7 '99-'06 should work.

Before you do any work be absolutely sure that motor is in otherwise great condition. From my experience it is not worth playing around on a tired 4.7

What's the price tag on these? I've seen rebuilds on the net anywhere from $1600-$2700 for a stock replacement. Most state oiling upgrades are performed.
