maybe I need to look into a Jeep-experienced shop also. as some of you may know, I started my 4.6L stroker project May of last year. my friend's uncle has been a mechanic for 25 years and knows a LOT about cars in general. he had the motor installed in 2 days and looks great, however it is a 1994 motor in a 1988 Jeep. I followed many online write-ups regarding installing a newer HO motor in a pre '90 XJ, but a year later it still isn't on the road. I have upgraded all necessary sensors, etc. the only thing I can see causing the problem possibly is using the 99+ intake setup with the newer TPS, so maybe it isn't communicating properly with the '88 ECU. initially it was a fuel problem, pump was bad so we replaced it, then the injectors weren't atomizing the fuel because the fuel pressure was a bit too low. can anyone recommend a very knowledgeable Jeeper to help me?
