In all honesty engines like running warm. Its us that get all bent out of shape over it. Not sure what is acceptable but I know a little hotter isn't bad.

Sent from my phone. Because I should be doing something more important.


89 YJ.. My first jeep and I won't let it go. ▀||||▀

Current Project: None... I disgust myself.

Thanks guys. I've had all 4.0s in the past and don't really know what's normal for the 2.5. It seems to float between 210 and 225 now. Running way better than it was at 160ish!

Awesome! I figured I would. Been getting right around 325 miles a tank (about 17-18 gallons, or 18-19mpg.) Hopefully it'll push past 20 now. My last YJ got like 9mpg so this is awesome to me lol.

Ford 19lb injectors out of a 4.6L v8.
They're orange or yellow colored. They have 4 very fine sprayers (pintles) vs our 1 inefficient 17lb pintle. They give noticable power, better idle, and better mileage. The 4.0tb will add more air to match the increased fuel and optimize everything.

I bought a fiberglass windshield frame to replace my old swiss cheese rusted one. Also I put in a few hours repairing the frame at the steering box. Repainted the steering box with anti rust paint. I hate rust!!!
