Thanks a lot... not exactly what i was hoping to hear, but i appreciate the honesty.
If i switch to a 4.0, i will keep my carb. Not that FI wouldnt be nice, i just like the simple set up of a carb. I read some threads on putting a 4.0 head in the 4.2?
I have a friend of a friend willing to pull my old engine and put the new setup in for about 400 bucks. And actually, if i'm not mistaken, i believe i saw a newer modle wrangler on my local CL that was wrecked but the motor looked fine...
Having the part out the YJ hurts, but its been in the back of my mind the whole time.
So would putting a 4.0 head in my 4.2 and keeping it carbed be an affordable alternative? Or if i find a good 4.0 engine and throw a carb on (like was suggested earlier)?
I the mean time, i will be shopping for hopefully another YJ. I'm just apprehensive to write mine off just yet, i know what i've done to mine, and what needs done. Starting over with another one is... scary, though will be exciting at the same time.
Thanks for your help, i hear you.
