4.0 engines

1997 4.0L HO engine vs. 1998 4.0 engine.

Back when I bought my 98 Cherokee, I had also purchased a 1997 Cherokee with the 4.0 "high output" engine. While I don't have the '97 anymore, what is the difference, if any between the two, and what are the HP/torque specs? TIA.

It pretty much is the same HP and Torque, except that Chrysler made the exhaust ports on 98+ 4.0's itty bitty so it would be more environmentally friendly.

4.0L I6
Bore x Stroke 3.88" x 3.41"
Displacement 242 (4.0L)
Compression Ratio 8.8:1
Horsepower (net) 180@4750
Torque (net) 220@4000
Main Bearings 7
Valve Configuration OHV
Fuel MPI


The 4.0L I6 that is used in the XJ and ZJ is rated slightly higher than the YJ and TJ 4.0L engine probably due to a different exhaust system.

This was exactly what I was wondering, I own a 1997 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 Litre "High Output" model myself, and am wondering how much horsepower I should be getting, 180 or 185? Or more?
