Thats how they did the early 90s Pathfinders. 150hp 180tq.. Crazy low gears 4:63? They were slow but sort of decent with small tires.

You really looking into a diesel Jeep? The late 2000 models made the GC w/ a 3.9L(I think) turbo diesel motor. If you can't figure that swap, look into a
4BT or 5.9L Cummins into a GC... Now your talking. I've seen one Wrangler Unlimited that had a 5.9L, lots of work.

Good luck.

You obviously don't know much about VW then, I can think of many many engines that would effectively move a ZJ and better than the Chrysler engines they came with.

Those 2.5 ZJ diesels had about the same torque as the 4.0 and comes with cracking heads from what I have read.

The VW 2.5 TDI would do a pretty good job. The 1.9 YDI can move a wrangler towing 1000 pounds pretty good too. You can run 17 pounds of boost constant all day long on the 1.9

Sent from my Galaxy S3 using JeepForum

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

The Touareg has a nice engine in it. Straight from VW:

TDIŽ Clean Diesel:

3.0L, 24-valve, DOHC, V6, TDIŽ Clean Diesel engine with common rail direct injection; 240 hp, 406 lbs/ft of torque

compare that to the 5.9L 245 hp 345 lbs/ft. Wouldn't mind having that engine in my Jeep. Plus it has a 8 speed transmission with it. If I had the parts I'd do it.

'94 ZJ, 4.0L, 231 TC
Icom V-8000 with 1/4 wave

No way this VW engine can move a Jeep....

Lets not forget VW is the parent company to Audi, Bugatti, Bentley, Porsche, Lamborghini NONE of them have an engine that can move a Jeep.
