maybe, I should re-phrase, I meant cheapest out of the V8s. Again in my opinion, if you are going to do an engine swap, you may as well go for a V8.

Better fuel economy if geared correctly, so maybe cheaper over the long run, but probably not enough to really notice.

Jeep 1:Used to have a 93 YJ 2.5l- 3.5" Black Diamond, Chevy TBI 5.7l V8, SM 465 4 speed, 8.8 rear( 4.10, L/S), rhinoline, Mile Marker 9000, NP 231, Had to sell it due to college
Jeep 2: 89/91 YJ, 4BT Cummins, NV4500, NP 231, Old Man Emu 2.5" suspension lift, 1" body lift.....Runs and drives, but very much a project
Interned at Novak Conversions 2 summers ago

Ask me about my 4BT Cummins Motor Mounts!!
