I googled 2000 wrangler oil position and got a lot of picture representing the filter coming straight off the block. Does anyone know if the position of the oil filter make a difference as far as how the engine runs? You'd think that it doesn't but you never know.

Some engines have a oil bypass check valve to send oil back to the crankcase instead of thru the filter if the oil is too thick or on start up to prevent a engine from going without oil, this is the only reason I would say get the right one, call around have a couple written estimates done with part numbers, you'll get the right stuff then.

I just don't know how the original was. The one I have is at an angle and my research is telling me it's straight off the block. I am sure it's not the original engine and I want my engine to be the way it's was originally.

Has anyone heard or run a Titan engine? Claims to have more power but not a stroker. Probably just cam swap but still curious.

Saw some pretty nasty reviews out there on that one. I was going to go with them until that. But I suppose it is like most things. . Look hard enough and you'll find all sorts of nasty.

The probably wouldn't still be in business if they didn't do a decent job.

They told me about 220hp 245 torque. I guess it could be as bad as anything else out there.

I found a used engine from a '04 TJ that has152k for $700. Will this go in my 2000 does this have a correct cast head?

How long do you plan on keeping your Jeep?

Forever, I know a reman engine would be better I the long run but I just do not have the cash at the moment in the end the used will be less than half of what a reman is. I know what is in there now is not the original engine. I'm really I the fence :/

If that used engine has been taken care of it has at least another 100k left in it. 100k would be a stretch for a titan or atk. And yes it should have the TUPPY head since it is an '04. The re manufactured engine may come with either head and in most cases it will be the old one!

For me, it wasn't so much the engine cost as it was the install. Yes, you can save $700-1000 by going with a used engine but you will also sink another $1200-2000 into the installation cost too. My install was $1700 which I understand is pretty competitive.

If you can do the labor all yourself then that isn't as much of a factor.

Everything will be done by me so labor isn't a factor and most of the reman places claim to follow all current tsb and also claim to be better than stock in most cases. Same as Clearwater heads. Also they tell me they've never had any heads crack.

So, yesterday marked the day!! The new remanufactured engine is in the way. I ordered it from gearheadengines.com. Engine was in stock and will be in my driveway in 3 days (counting yesterday) not bad. The cost was about $2500 3 year unlimited mile warrantee. They cover shipping to you and for the core to go back ($510 core charge refunded when core returns)
Today I received a call from ATK, so I guess that is who remanufactured the engine. From what I've read ATK has a good reputation.
Now all the other parts will take a bit longer to receive. I should have everything by next Friday the 13. Hope that's not a bad omen. With a little luck all my parts will be here and the engine will be put in that very weekend. I will post more later!! Thanks for the help!

If anyone has a 2000 with air conditioning and can post a picture of how the pump is mounted that would be great. Thx
