Welll lets see those Finished Pictures of that Bad Bow Tie in there !! Ide love to do that to mine & dump my 4 cyl. Over all how much do you think you have into it just rough estimate, minus the Motor & trans. I can get a a real nice 350 right now & Trans for a good price , IM just wondering how much for all the other stuff that had to be changed.
Just curious what exhaust size you ended up going with? Getting my Jeep back next week and have to get a whole new exhaust set up on it. I have heard several suggestions but all from people that do not have a Jeep with a 350 in it.
IIRC manifolds will limit you to 2 or 2.5" exhaust.
Headers you can go larger, but if it is mostly stock you will not see any huge gains in HP, but you can start to lose some torque going 3" or so. True duals with manifolds free's it up plenty.

Go with newer stuff, leave the TBI's in the junkyard. The Gen III engines are more powerful, more efficient, lighter, easier to work on, ect ect... The aftermarket is strong and they are getting cheaper in the yards.
I got a complete pull-out 6.0 from an 01 Denali fan to flexplate with all accessories and electronics last week for $1100. It has 70,000 miles on it but that's nothing for a modern engine that was well maintained. I pulled the oil pan and the valve covers and aside from some normal varnishing everything looks brand new inside.
yea..... when all was said and done, my driveshafts worked as they were before the swap...... if you use the exact same setup, i don't see why yours wouldn't..... but every rig is different..... to mount my trans, i got a chevy mount then drilled new holes in my trans skidplate.

Got another question for ya, I will be getting my Jeep back from the 350 swap and SOA. What did you do about your Tach? I would like to try and keep the factory one if possible. Jeeps make it to easy to just reach in and grab stuff. Would probably ruin my day to pay for a good Autometer and someone think they need it more than me. LOL
