Hitting the governor is the saddest feeling I can know. Knowing there's still more speed left in your car, but a device won't let you have it, feels like the world is ending.

Why are you guys competing to be the craziest Jeep driver? '88 2dr XJ, LS1 V8, stock susp., 275/60/R15, 165 mph. Never got pics, you couldn't see the Jeep through the flames after he wrecked. I believe a ZJ would've faired worse.

It was a lot of work and a lot of $ down the hole. That was its debut run. The alcohol for the engine was the reason for the burn.

LSx deserve to crash and burn. I hate those motors. There's no originality in an LS swap. Everybody's done it to every kind of car, ever. It's all been done before. I like to see creativity and uniqueness, not something they make a kit for.

I think I'm gonna try and supercharge the 4.0 just because it can be done. Think an M62 might be on the small side for an engine that big?

You know you drive a ZJ when the smallest engine available to you is, in any other application, huge.

M90 or M120 would be a better fit.

At least it'd be unique. I'd drop a 13B rotary into a Jeep for the sake of uniqueness.

That was my thinking. M62 only came to mind because you can get them from early Xterras, and I know a guy.

Nothing's wrong with them, but everything RWD ever has had an LS1 put into it. Mustangs, Miatas, CJs, TJs, XJs, ZJs, 240s, Z-cars, Rangers, RX7s, I could go on. Everyone goes LS1, and there's no creativity in it. A lot of cars have kits available, and everyone else can at the least buy a standalone wiring kit, so it's just weld-new-mounts, drop-in, and go. There's no challenge, no ingenuity in an LS1 swap.

I feel like you would have to gear super low with a motor like that.
