Engine Swap Need Info.

I HAVE A 88 YJ AND I AM GOING TO PUT A V8 IN IT. THE PROBLEM IS THAT I DON'T KNOW WHAT ENGINE TO RUN FORD OR CHEVY{ 351 OR 350}. I HAVE READ THAT BOTH ARE GOOD SWAPS BUT WHAT IS BETTER AND EASIER ON A SMALL BUDGET. I WILL BE GETTING THE ENGINE FROM A JUNK YARD. SO IF ANYONE HAS DONE EATHER OF THIS SWAP ANY INFO WILL BE HELPFUL.


DRIVE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT

neither is easy to do on a small budget...at least not to do properly.

350 Chevy's are a dime a dozen though and have umlimited aftermarket support. a 350/TH350 (or SM465 if you want a manual)/NP205(from a ford truck for the proper axle drop) would be a pretty bulletproof combo...

Your dana 35 axle that came stock in the YJ probably wont last long though with that kind of power.

1985 CJ7 Project
Phase One : 5.3L Vortec/4L60E, Moser axles for AMC20, Twin Stick'd Dana300 - Completed
Phase Two: Bedliner, Rollcage, Seats, BESRK Rear Bumper w/ tire swing, Soft Top, and a few other goodies - Mostly Complete
Phase Three: Waggy 44 front, Scout D44 Rear, 4.56's, ARB's (F/R) SOA with YJ Springs, 35x12.50x15 BFG MT - Not Even Close to beginning

Also a mostly rust-free 1970 Scout 800A That I'll get to start working on someday...
