IAC may help idle but it wont have anything to do with the tranny. A bad TPS can make the tranny act up, TV cable out of adjustment, low on fluid

Got the rear long arm mounts done. My only 1/2" drill bits are both pretty dull so it's not been easy... sharpening one of them only made things worse.

thats the exact reason this particular ZJ was passed down from Me to my younger brother and i now wheel a K5 blazer.


Full Frame or bust IMO. But he wanted to build it so we helped him along the way. Still a ton more bracing to be added to the cage to make it trail ready however.

Got my transfer case! No more locked up 249!
No, I changed the coil pretty early on. The last thing I did this last August was change the coil again for a Mopar unit to be sure. Less than a month later, it ate another muffler and it's been parked since.

superchargers are easy dirty power but at the boost and power levels for your application i think your looking at 80 hp in the toilet at 6,000 rpm

turbos do use a few hp compared to a roots/screw/ect. supercharger that can use 25% of the power they are making or more even !

but really its about the incar experience right ? from what i know turbos are more fun , superchargers make more cool noise , both together make for an orgasm machine ( not my words ) lol

so what did i do to my zj today ? tightened the trans pan bolts and thought about how to change out the swaybar bushings but i may just have it done
My calculations put me at 250whp/250wtq with an M62 underdriven to 10psi at 4500rpm. That is exactly where I want to be. Every reasonable turbo setup for a KA either has less power than it's worth, or a fairly large boost spike with peak boost above the engine's stride. This KA hates revving past 5k. I never want it at 6k. The engine bay is also a bit cramped with the KA to get a good turbo setup sorted. Eliminating lag is difficult at best.

Believe me, I've done my research. For my specific application, the supercharger is the best option. If the KA burns out with this blower, I'm gonna swap a CA18DET in, built to make 300whp.

Anyway, today I put saving for this Orvis above my disdain for my manager. I'm not quitting yet.

Mine was in an accident before i got it so my pass side headlight is held in by the inner adjuster and a piece of taped up cardboard and i dont have any real adjustment on it. I can move it towards the center and up and thats it
