Chevy V-8

Looking to put a new chevy V-8 in my 2000 2.5L wrangler. Wanted to know the best size engine in your opinion to drop in, also what else you would suggest to swap in so my jeep wont blow up on me. Etc. Tranny, transfer case, gearing

i asked this question to some other people and was told that it would be better to put the v-8 from a grand cherokee in there instead (same bolt pattern or something) as well as everything back.. transmission transfercase etc.

there was an article in JP magazine a few months ago about it, it had a yellow jeep on the cover.

The best engine to swap into the Jeep is the Chevy V8 350.

Get engine mounts and tranmisssion adaptors. If you need more power get the stroker 383 V8.

If want state of the art swap get the LT-1 or LS-1 Chevy V8, Fuel Injection, from a Camaro or Corvette.

Check this video for a Jeep with LT-1 engine.
