Performance for a 90 yj
Does anyone have any suggestions to get more power in my YJ it's a 1990
Not a whole lot you can do but, is it a four banger or a 258 six? If its a 258 six you can put a head on a 4.0L on it to pick up about 40 horsepower. You will have to make some modifications to do it but, its do able. You can also do fuel injection for either engine but, it can be pricey. What is your current set up? Auto? Manuel? Tires,lift?
Soccer six in the mix.
speed is just a question of money....how fast do you want to go?

In 1990 it should be a 258 straight 6 unless a 4.0 has been swapped in. Lets say it is a carbed 258 and I'll tell you what I did with my 258 for more power. I installed a 470 holley TA 4 barrel carb, offy dual plane intake manifold, roller rockers, comp cam, higher compression pistons, ported head, header, dui distributor and MSD. My 258 will scream, it really bumped the power to well over 200 hp. The 4.0 head works best on a 258 if you go FI. I found a ported 258 head works better with a carb as far as making more power with my other mods. The 258 is capable of making great hp and gobs of low end torque with throwing a few parts at it.

with 35"s your biggest problem is the gears but wendell gave you good advice on how to get more power from the 4.2. fix the gears first.
Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.
the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.
