Blown 6.0...very cool! What else are you going to be running? Tranny, t-case, axles...?

Will be keeping up with this. That is going to be a nasty setup.

Bama yes I actually drove the hummer that the setup came out of and it was impressive. The guy was doing a duramax swap and i happened to be at the right place at the right time now I have to figure out if its going to be cheaper to buy a adapter for the 4l60 to np231 or go with a Chevy t-case. Im still learning so any info would help

Are you sure the 4l60 is strong enough?

The 4L80 is long ... even slightly longer than a 6l80!

The 4L60e would be fine IF beefed up significantly ... 500-600hp expected with your blower ... don't ask me for the torque numbers ...
what you need is a race transmission ...

I'm in agreement. The 6.0 can produce torque in the low-400's without much effort and with a blower it's going to start getting pretty peppy. I'm not so sure that I'd trust ANY of the stock drivetrain with that kind of power. I'd be going for a toughened-up transmission and an Atlas case, and probably 9" stuff in the differentials. Alloy shafts and all the trimmings for sure.

...

I stayed stockish with my LS1 (300ish hp and torque) and let the torque management for the 4l60e in the pcm alone ... on purpose ... to preserve my D44 with 4.88 on 33s (richmond gears, chromolied and trussed) for a while.

And still ... when I had some VSS adjustment issue until 2 days ago shifting from 1->2 with slightly above 2500rpm (it did not shift early enough bc of bad speed readings!) was jerking tires on pavement and in turns I had the feeling to sit on a bull

Now it shifts normal ... but fast and wheeeee ... the TJ is bungy cord accelerated from any signal light start


with 6.0 and blower:
if you skimp on the rest ... (budget issues e.g.) your gonna break things pretty quick!
I suggest in that case you swap your monster powertrain for a nice 5.3 or LS1 combo ... plenty of power in a TJ without breaking stuff or bank
A friend of mine has a tuned L92 and a 6l80 with paddle shift in his 4dr JK ... he destroyed his stock rear D44 in no time. And then on one side he shaved ALL wheel studs off his shortly after installed ford 9" ... you should see his face when his back tire was overtaking him. LOL

EDIT: in your pics do I see a supercharger or A TURBO!? That's going to be tight at the inner fenders and hot!

You're essentially going to run the 6.0 using the GM computer, and only interface with the Jeep systems when you need to do so... it's basically a standalone situation. What are you asking, specifically?

ok .. reread some posts ...

so the 6.0 is a truck engine and not a LS2 ... LQ4 if out of a Hummer but with turbo ... less hp than a LS2 if naturally aspirated but a torque monster ... iron block. A beast with turbo... aftermarket!?

And your transmission is the already beefed up 4L65E ... good!
( good enough???? )

You need to check if drive by cable or drive by wire ... important for the harness infos and pcm. What year?
IF dbw the right tac module and the electronic pedal are a good idea too ... lol

Make sure you get that pcm with tune and all sensors as well ...

search for LQ4 turbo swaps and wiring harnesses. Check out speartech.com! John Spear is the right guy to ask and products and infos well worth the price!

mating some TJ gauges in is no biggie if the rest is sorted out ... maybe you want to go even aftermarket gauges.
