Swap questions with stroker
Hey guys im new here on the forum and i got a question for you fellasI'm plannin on swapping a 4.6 stroker I already have built and running in my 92 YJ into a 2000 Tj. The only question I have is what do I about the distributor on my yj and the coil packs in the tj. My plan was to run the intake manifold and all the other wiring off the tj so I could run it with the tj computer. I was just wondering which way I should swap it or if i can change it so any input would be greatly appreciated

Swap the coil packs over. You'll need to fab up a bracket or two. Swap the dizzy for the sensor assembly in the 2000.

BUT, I'm not sure the block configuration is the same regarding how the accessories bolt on between the two engines. I'll post this for you and see what you think.

XJ Cherokee and ZJ Grand Cherokee 4.0L engine blocks interchange.

2000+ TJ Wrangler and WJ Grand Cherokee 4.0L engine blocks interchange.

XJ/ZJ blocks and 2000+ TJ/WJ blocks do not interchange without significant modifications. (1991 to 1995 YJ and 1997-1999 4.0L TJ Wrangler blocks will interchange in XJ/ZJ and visa-versa).

TJ/WJ 4.0L Engine blocks underwent clean sheet design changes effective in the 1999 WJ Grand and 2000 TJ Wrangler. These blocks are not interchangeable with XJ/ZJ engine blocks. The reason is motor mount bolt holes and belt driven accessory mounting bolt holes are in different locations, or not present at all, TJ/WJ vs. XJ/ZJ.

XJ: "Regular" (not Grand) Cherokees 84-01
ZJ: Grand Cherokee 93-98 (Gen1)
WJ: Grand Cherokee 99-04 (Gen2)
YJ: Wrangler 87-95 (Gen1)
TJ: Wrangler 97-06 (Gen2)

So that's not looking to good for me then when it comes to block configurations. I'll have to do some homework. Thanks for the reply

Well it's in and done I got the engines swapped and the only place I had to fabricate something was a bracket off the alternator so I could adjust my belt tension. Motor mounts lined up no problems at all Thanks to everyone here and all te good info on the forum
