I pledge allegiance to no automaker.
They all have the same flaw.
They are man made.
Nothing man made is perfect, nor will it last forever.

To me it is not about being like or unlike others. I couldn't care less what other people think of me or my machine. All that matters is what YOU think of YOUR machine, and that it puts a smile on your face every time you drive it. I am not too proud to listen to the advice of people with more experience and/or expertise than myself (high on that list is NOVAK).

Sure, people have stuffed just about everything imaginable into a jeep but there are many good reasons why the 350 is by far the most popular swap for a jeep. It works well, is a great motor, is well documented and well supported and is among the most cost effective swaps for the jeep just to name a few. I do what makes sense to me and if people don't like my 350 well......eat my dust!

I'm just a Mopar guy so... yeah. Some people build a tube buggy around a SBC, I'd build one around a 5.9 magnum. As long as you don't put a damn flowcrapper behind the engine, doesn't really matter all that much to me.

I love my Flowcrapper 40
and (now that it's running finally) also love my SBC.... but I'm not brand partial... I'm money partial

I'd LOVE to jam an original HEMI in there but then there's the money issue LOL

There is a lot to do with an engine swap. It also depends on how clean u want the install to be also. Now that I have done a swap, I could do it again faster and cheaper. I think around 3k is a good idea of price IF u do all the work yourself and have the tools/ knowledge to do it. If u don't, then the price just keeps going up.

I can tell you this, sometimes it's really hard to be a Mopar fan. Some of the **** Chrysler does just... I don't even know.

An accurate representation of me when working on a Mopar vehicle.


A 426 Hemi would be real nice though.
