Well, I am new to the board, but not new to wanting to add HP to everything I own.
I have several questions, but first let me tell you the situation. My wife's 92 XJ has recently blew a head gasket and she may have gotten it hot enough to warp the head, but dont know yet.
My thoughts are: This would be the perfect time to add a cam/headers/exhaust and possibly port the heads/TB and gasket match the intake. The cam I have theoretically chose is the new VooDoo 63500 (Duration @ .050 IN/EX: 208/213; Lift IN/EX: .484"/.484"; LSA / ICL: 112/108; RPM Range: 1000–5200 (w/ lifters)
1. How do I ID a HO engine and/or head (her engine is from a salvage yard and not OE)? I have located the HO #s on the internet thanks to this website, but not yet figured out where these #s are located on the head? Are they visible without pulling off the valve cover?
2. If I change the cam, add headers, do a mild port to the heads and throttle body; Will the injectors and fuel pump be up to the task? Will the computer be up to the task? With electronics and fuel, what problems/solutions/complexity am I looking at?
Thank you in advance for your knowledgable replies
That is where I originally found the casting #s for the head, but I never seemed to find a location on that website. Anyways, that is a great website. I even have it bookmarked, lots of good info on there.
-OK, will do. That is where I found the casting #s in the first place, but I must have missed the information concerning where to find the casting number on the head itself? I will look at the Tech Section again sometime.
-It seems for the time being that JEEPINWI has answered the question, so no sweat.
