Wow dude they are ripping you off!! Check out car-part.com most go for $100 or less, that is what I paid for mine locally that specializes in transmissions. Another forum member I know of only paid $75 for his through carpart.com. Dont pay that much for one its a scam

I paid $160 for mine, holy crap!

EDIT: That's with expedited shipping and everything. Found it on car-part.com from a guy somewhere in the northwest.

Carpart.com is down right now so I can't access the website, but there's no way in hell I'm going to pay more than ~$100 for the bellhousing.

Which one did you type in for the URL? carpart.com? or car-part.com? You gotta put the little dash in there. Otherwise it'll take you to an ebay link.

I found mine out of state and it was shipped to my door for $80. You'll find one.

I have sourced a couple of them from car-part . com and have emailed a couple of the owners. We will see where that goes...

Update, one company has contacted me, they are asking $100 for the bell housing + S&H/tax. I have emailed another company in Ohio that has the same part, but from a 1999 Dakota 3.9. Awaiting their response.

Bumpdate!

I have a 5.2 block/heads/intake/accessory plate, appears to be rebuilt. Thoughts?





I will swap in the block out of the ZJ for the initial SMOG inspection, then I will put this block in, of course after I get some fun parts for it (cam, roller rockers, etc.).

All the trouble you guys have to go through for smog ugh. Looks like you got a good deal there. I should be swaping my 5.2 in tonight. Then on to wiring

My engine is being rebuilt from the ground up, so emissions shouldn't be too much of a hassle for me.

A little WD40 and a rag wiped the rust right off of the head surface...



All shiny shiny.

Son of a *****.

Left the heads outside, some water got onto the bottom, rust has set in, no wiping this one clean

Have to get them re-decked, moved everything into my basement and wiped oil all over everything...

In the mean time, thinking about some upgrades...

Why on earth would you leave raw metal outside?

Good luck getting an air filter under your hood with that intake. Sounds like a fun set up but probably overkill for a jeep. The 5.2 is already fast in one.
