This 3.8 is nothing but a bored 3.3. The 3.3 is in my wifes Eagle Vision. Gasp. A car.
And while the drivetrain on the Vision is front wheel drive the engine is mounted
north to south just like in the JK instead of east and west like most front wheel drives.
So Jeep starts with a car engine and returns to a car engine. And along the way other car engines were used like the Buick 225 V6. Gasp. Another V6. And even the old 4.2 liter straight six came from an engine in the Rambler. Another car!
