What has more power?
 
So im looking into builds and i can not decide between building up the straight 6 with one or two turbos vs a 383 stroker. Does anyone have a good opinion or knowledge of this?

242 to 260 cubic inches VS. 383 cubic inches DUH

No replacement for displacement

that doesnt say much. when you have the dual turbos and all performance parts on the 6 cylcinder

Are you going to use a turbo on both motors or only the |6 ? if youre going to put a turbo on either than do the V8

uberxj92 08-22-2013 11:46 AM

What are you gonna use the jeep for? Fast on the road and straight off roading, v8. Good hard crawling and lots of low end torque stuff then i6. I wouldn't turbo it. Maybe a vortech supercharger or maybe stroke it.

why not a turbo diesel?

Put a 355 SBC in my 84 CJ-7 back in 92. Best thing I ever did to my Jeep.

Power, Speed, Fun off roading and lot's of easy cheap upgrades

That's what I'm doing now. I have a Mercedes xj. A stroker xj. Now I'm building a waggy 6bt and Tranny out of a 2500 Dodge. Debating on whether to use this Dana 70 dually rear that I have.

IMHO, I'd pick torque over horsepower. I've owned a few turbo vehicles and although they are fun (minus turbo lag) they ended up being more of a pain than a blessing.

For a YJ? I would go with the inline 6. I won't bother with a turbo because the stock VAM 282 specs should be more than enough for this project but even with everything else the YJ is much lighter and probably a little more capable because it sits some inches higher. I have no idea how quickly it moves though. For dragging I would go with the 384 without question. There is just so much power there that I have been speculating on and I've been wanting to build this thing for years. I think it would be perfect for a Hornet or Javelin but I have no idea what that would mean for a cute little breadbox YJ or XJ. I know it would at the very least roar to life when starting it. Probably couldn't keep the wheels on the pavement. :cheers2:

Why an I6 for hard crawling and lots of low end torque stuff?

uberxj92 08-27-2013 07:31 PM

O yeah! Easier cheaper to maintain repair and easier to beef it up

No, it doesn't. Unfortunately, neither does saying "dual turbos and all performance parts on the 6"
What performance parts? What size turbos?
What parts on the 383? Heads/cam/intake/compression/etc?
You can't compare apples to apples without a full list of parts included.
And as asked, what is the intended use of the Jeep?
