Power for the 4cyl

I was recently considering doing a 350 swap in my 95 yj, but the cost is really gonna get me so I've decided to put it off for a while. In the meantime, what's the best way to increase power to a 4cyl? Stupid question I know. It's just really annoying going uphill at 50mph in 4th with your foot to the floor trying to gain speed.

I just completed a electric fan conversion to my 4 cylinder. Getting rid of the heavy mechanical fan really takes a load off the motor. Great thing about the conversion, the electric fan work with whatever new engine you put in. Mine cost about $230. Included the fan, wiring and control module.

Not meaning to be a smart alack, but sell your existing rig and buy one with a 4.0. You may be surprised with the power and wind up ditching the engine swap, which will save you a lot of time and money.

There's a guy on here with injectors on 4.6 f150 i'm thinking about using a throttle body off a 4.0.

x2 swap to a 4.0L lol

Throttle body from a 4.0L is a decent upgrade I hear. I'm not sure if there're any tangible upgrades to the exhaust.

Hey xj guy popping in here!

Look for a xj 91-95 with either an aw4 or ax15 and computer swap em over. It will be a lot less than a 350 swap!

X2 on 4.0 swap.
Its only 1 MPG less than the 2.5 and twice the motor.
Have you tried to get the DOT to flatten the roads? We did it here in Florida. Lol just kidding.
