I see no beer in this one. . . Are you slacking on us, or am I really just missing it?
I have to say, that LT1 looks MUCH better in your Jeep than my LT1 does in my '93 Firebird. . . Yours looks new, mine looks like it's coming up on 175k miles. . .
I've been thinking of swapping a SBC of some sort into my YJ when the 4 banger dies, that's probably the route I'll go, that way I can have the best of both worlds. . . A capable 4x4 rig that will go anywhere, but can also get out of it's own way on the street. I'd probably see better gas mileage numbers out of a V8 than the I4 anyway. . . lol
I don't remember, and don't really want to go searching around for it, but what transmission do you have behind that LT1? 700R4/4L60E? Also, it looks like you are running an LT1 F-Body or Corvette steering column, are you also running a stock LT1 PCM, or did you choose to go with a standalone fuel/spark management computer? I have a TON of questions, but don't want to ask too many until I get a chance to read all the way through your thread.
Great work, and I can't wait to see the progress on this one!
