Not with that engine. A discussion on Allpar.com talks about how the 6.4 is not the Hemi you would want in a slow speed off idle off road Wrangler. The regular 5.7 Hemi is better just off idle than the 6.4. The 6.4 is all about higher revving horsepower and speed.

This is just a toy for Manley.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

It sounds like the 6.4 in the Wrangler will be quite a bit different than the one in the Challenger. It gonna have 100hp less, maybe to make more low end torque that helps off-road. Even if it is high reving the power on the low end will prolly still be more than the current 6.

It's not gonna have anything because it's not going to happen.

The current 5.7L Hemi doesn't meet crash standards for the Wrangler engine bay. The refreshed version will supposedly have a slightly larger engine bay, but not large enough for the 6.4L.

Secondly, there's only so much you can do to tune an engine for lower-end torque. The 5.7L is a better choice all around, assuming it'll ever fit in a factory spec.
