Carb to FI conversion???

I bought a 93' wrangler FI that was in a front end wreck . Is it possible to swap the FI unit from that to my 90' Sahara?

Yep, people do it all the time. Search "4.0 head swap". You'd be best off to put the 4.0 head on your block and take all of the FI stuff with it.

Thanks.

Make sure to do your research. I don't know everything about this swap off the top of my head. But I've seen people having to close off some of the water jackets that are in the 4.0 head that don't match up to anything on the 4.2 block. I couldn't tell you which ones or the best way to go about that though.

I think it'd be easier to swap the entire 4.0.
