No parts, no parts no parts, I can't find syncos and other little stuff for the transmission. This is going to take more time than I thought since it seems that I have to order things from US again ..

No parts yet...

But at least I'm at home and can post some update pictures.

First, some pictures of the crate and it's components:

The old engine, the last minutes before getting pulled..


The engine is out:




The transmission & Transfercase is also out:



Note the SYE on the transfercase.

What is lift from my Borla Headers .........

This is going out in favor of a 3" system.

The empty engine bay. You could easily fit a v8 in there ..

The only problem I could find

The engine was taken out of the crate to be prepared for installation.

The new bigger engine will need more air and fuel intake. New 24lb fuel injectors and 62mm throttle body will be used to supply the required amount. Both the injectors and the throttle body are from Accel. I bought them from Golen. But be aware that those are not part of the crate and you have to pay for them separately. So, you need to keep this in mind when building or buying a new stroker.




My older style PCM is forgiving and will adopt to the new modes pretty well. So I won't be adding anything to it. In addition, there is no adjustable fuel regulator for my engine year. So, I hope that those injectors will do their work proparly.

In addition, the intake manifold well be replaced by a newer style unit (2000+ ?) for better air flow. This is a used unit. I just cleaned and painted it.


Due to the new emitions Jeep to had to upgrade few parts in the engine to retain the horsepower. The intake, and exhaust manifold were part of those changes. swapping a newer manifold on an older engine will "supposedly" give me some extra ponies. Well, this the theory at least. I found this one cheap and didn't mind buying it even if I didn't gain any horsepower at all!

With bigger intake and injectors, I also need a bigger exhaust system. Stay toned for the 3" kinda custom exhaust.

the engine is finally in.

I also used new motor mounts. But I'm not getting any mounts for the transmission because new ones will come with the AEV tummy tuck.

Speaking of the transmission, it is almost done.


Everything will be completed by tomorrow. But I'm still waiting for the engine break in oil...

Once you get it all put together you should post a video so we can hear it run!

YES ! yes yes yes yes !

I can't wait to get it running.. But I'm afraid that the exhaust system will be very loud. This is how it is configured:

Rugged Ridge Headers -> modified 3" collector -> 3" resonator -> 3" AFE XP catback

It might seems much but I wanted to stick with the "3 inch single exhaust for a 300hp engine" legend..

How come you didn't reuse your Borola header?
