Well, I'm in the Marine Corps, so today I went and talked to the Monitor about moving duty stations, didn't get back and started on the jeep till about 5pm, i got the motor back in the hole and reassembled, the 4.2L power steering pump needed a little modification, and i'm hoping it worked, will take a picture of it tommrow to show you exactly what i did... need to make a run the the parts store tommrow to get fuel line hose, rtv sealant, some bolts to replace the E12 bolts on the bellhousing and the fuel pump, hopeing to not leave untill i have everything bolted back on and hopefully the wiring harness mounted and the ecm mounted, won't be able to do wiring untill wednesday, and the fuel pump till thursday, then off to the exhaust shop to have a friend weld it up, then it should be smooth sailing and a running motor... will keep everyone updated, and if anyone needs more information please let me know, and i will get it to you, will also get pictures of the wiring harness and fuel pump install when i do it... have a good night

ehh, i will deff let you know, but im get this finished up first and make sure everything else is running good, once we get to that point i'ma deff hit you up on that offer... the junkyard here is cheap....like real cheap, cost me $136 for the head, wiring harness, the cps, the intake, the injectors, the fuel rail, the throttle body, the exhaust manifold, the exhaust down pipe, the dizzy, the coil, and a few other odds and ends... thanks by the way for your remarks about the thread...exactly what i'm shooting for, i don't want anyone to have any questions or missing information about doing this swap... i've had that happen too many times, where i thought i read everything i needed to know and ended up having to figure everything else out on my own, quick story i did my first 4.0 swap in a 88 wrangler, and thought i had everything figured out, took me 3 weeks because of missing information and having to guess... if you point your cursor over my name it will show you my XJ, i looked at your thread and we used to have the exact same truck, a red 1992 sport... I have about $42,000 in that truck... and kind of regret it, but nothing can get it stuck, and it's win's just about every rock competetion i've put it in, and never placed below 3rd

**** do you have a build thread or videos of that XJ? I feel as though ive seen it before.
oh and 2 pieces of input
1)if you keep the old intake get the ford 5.0 injectors
2)i would suggest you sell that header and get the newer style with the flex joints. the old style like the one you have tends to crack

yea got plenty of pictures of the build but no thread, and i know about both, just tight on money and trying to get this done before winter hits and the carb runs like crap... prob going with borla header, or back to a banks torque tube, even though the xj is th only truck with a banks header that banks ever sold.... that blew up... yes blew up... that's what happens when you have 500+HP going through it... they sent me a new one free of charge... with an apology letter and a request to have the old header to place in the corporate office

cevans87, dude, that is great! thanks, this thread will answer a ton of stuff. I had a 89 YJ that had a tpi 4 banger that I swaped in a 93 MPFI 4 banger. Had to change the engine harness, ecm, ecm location, battery tray and swaped in mechanical gages, just like the pic above. Ran it for about 3 weeks then sold her.

I bought this 83 Cherokee over in Italy about 12 years ago, got a cool paper trail, so this will stay in the family, just want to upgrade her with a better fuel syustem and smoother running.

Went to one of the auto parts stores today after work and looked at both starters, wow, the little cherokee one will bolt right up. Just need to figure out how to change the wiring from a remote starter solenoid on a inner fender to one mounted on the starter. Now I can get the bell housing to Novak for the CPS and save some cash.

I have thought about swaping out for a newer tranny, like a NV3550 because my NP208 will bolt right up to it without any mods or adapters, but if I go for that or a ax-15, I would need to modify my tranny hump because the shifter is more towards the rear of those trannys and on the T176, its more in the center.

No pressure cevans87, but I'm watching this thread more than the ones for my 71 F250 and 66 Mustang I am restomoding.

the green wire/ black stripe coming off the power distribution center on the xj wiring harness goes to the little post on the starter... plug up your five for fire and she will fire right up, and you can get rid of the solinoid on the firewall, and free up some space... if you need more explination give me a call

when i say coming off the power distribution center i mean in that general location, there is a heavy guage light green wire with a black stripe, that is the starter wire, as long as everything else is hooked up, you will fire right up, i will get as many pictures of what to do with the wiring harness as I can... because i really am trying to make this the best swap thread on the net... and i'm doing my damdest to get all the information out of my encylcopediamind, to get on here for everyone...
