0331 head swap 7120 removing the head from 92 to 2000 what all parts are needed

I am doing the head swap i need some advice on what all parts are compatible from a 1992 xj to a 2000 xj? Or what parts i should remove from the 1992 brackets,sensors, should i remove the cam from the 92 and put it in the 2000 or should i just leave that alone.


What other parts should i remove from the 1992 to keep as parts i case i break any on the trail axel shafts sensors??????

You'll want to keep all of the sensors, brackets, etc from the 2000 to use with the #7120 head. The 2000 intake manifold will bolt up just fine. You will need the '92 exhaust manifold (unless you mod the 2000 exhaust manifold to work with the #7120 head - different port configuration) and you can leave the coolant temp sensor in place unused (or swap with a plug) since the 2000 doesn't use a separate sensor for the gauge. You'll also need to fab some brackets for the 2000 distributorless coil rail. There's no reason to use the '92 cam, your 2000 4.0 will run fine after the head swap with the cam it has now.

Do you know what all i will need to modify for the intake so the bracketry will line up and i also was wondering if i should purchase a mild cam i am getting the valves enlarged the head ported and polished and roller rockers set up. I am trying to make it the most fuel efficient that i can and get the most power out of it but still keeping it fuel effecient.
Any good wright ups wood be greatly apreciated .


Thanks for the help.
