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
Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind
Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it

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

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.

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.

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?
434 pump gas SBC with an NX/HVH plate system

Dana 30 front with 4.56's/Dana 44 rear with 4.88's
