Yeah, I think there's a bit of fluff built in there, but everything needed to be done and it's not like I can do it myself. I'm not thrilled about the costs (I'm a tightwad), but it's money well spent, I guess. Mrs K keeps reminding me that this will cost a lot less than buying Lil K a used car in a year.

Might i ask why you chose to go with the 232 crank vs the 258?

Sure - mostly due to pricing. The 232 is about 100 bucks cheaper than the 258. And you can build a stroker with just the crank and pistons. With the 258, you need crank, *rods* and pistons. Also, I can use the stock cam and valvetrain, while the 258 recipes generally call for a (new) higher lift cam, which means new springs, retainers, clips, etc.

Also, I already have a 2004 4.7 HO, so I wasn't looking to build a monster. I was content to just rebuild the 4.0, but thought I could get some cheap power with the mini-stroker recipe. I just want a reliable DD without that dead spot around 2K rpms.

As usual, it's slow going. We had problems getting the fourth piston in - the bottom ring kept getting hung up. So we quit there.

I figure 3 oughta be enough.

BTW, that stand is a POS. I think it's a Torin. The welds are out of line and a freakin mess. As you can see, we had to modify it with some outriggers just to stabilize it. And to think that the seller said that he built a small block Chevy on it. I can't imagine.

Got to love seeing some progress, I just got my parts ordered for mine. Hope to have it running down the road by the end of the month, and that will be later than i need.

Pretty sure that pulley isn't in the right place, but I bolted it on mostly to keep from losing it.

Looking good, looks like you'll have it going sooner than later. If I can make a suggestion, replace anything that is questionable. I already had a big scare with the oil sender on my 4.6 that's got 600mi on it, and bad cooling problems. Its all fixed but would have been easier when I did the install initally.

Thanks - that's great advice. Except that everything's "questionable" on the Jeep!

When I started, I made a decision to replace anything that would require removing the engine to access. That's kind of the event horizon for me.
