258 DOG

I have an 89 YJ that is slow. It does have an automatic trans which doesn't help. Does any one know if a 4.0 head will fit the 258 block? I am going to install headers, juice box TFI ignition upgrade and after market carb and manifold. Which would be the best way to go,clifford intake and holley carb or weber and the stock manifold? I need to get more power out of this thing!

What are your rpm's like? If you're having problems getting any high rpm's, then you could have a plugged catalytic converter. My 89' yj w/4.2 had absolutely no power and was really a dog. I couldn't even get 2800 rpm's when I first noticed I was having problems. By the time I figured out what was going on, all I could get was 1200 rpm's and I couldn't even climb a slight hill going down a paved road.

Are you into harleys? Iam building a soft tail,a realy fat soft tail.
I had not thought about the cat converter, I'll check it. I,ve had other 4.0,s and 258,s and they ran realy well. It seems realy odd that this one doesn,t. Thank you for the info. Let know about the bikes.
