so what are you doing for the rest of that driveline to handle that beast in the hood?
is the rear shaft going to have any room left?

Nice work. I love seeing a pentastar being put into a pentastar, unlike those yokels that toss a 350 in them (). I am planning on either a 5.2 or 5.9 for my 90 YJ. I want to throw a 5 speed back in it though.
How much longer to the transfer case output is this setup over what you took out? What did you take out by the way?

Are you finding any clearance issues with fenders, hood, firewall, etc?
How did you handle the wiring for it? My YJ has the controller inside the cab so when I go to do the swap, I will have to do quite a bit of rewiring. How are you going to handle the tach to be able to read the 8 cylinder signal?

Sorry about all the questions, I am just beginning research for my swap. Love the work and hope you get to drive it soon!

Well just got back from checking out the engine swap. Looks factory. I almost thought of doing it also. (no-way) He thought out everything well and all we had to go to the store for today was a few misc. nuts and a cable clamp for the gas peddle, until he gets the correct cable. Really feel bad for not being around to help but as fast as he was moving on this would have been in the way. Great job. Look forward to this summer. P.S. Im gonna spoil it its running and driving.......
