It's the drain tube for the AC/heater.

It's running!

Had some delays due to having to relocate the workspace, but got everything reassembled and, with some other minor delays (poorly installed CPS), it lit right up. Throttle response and oil pressure are great. Revved it for break-in for about 20 minutes and then shut it down. I still need to reinstall the hood and fascia before I can actually take it out, but it's ready to roll.

It took me almost a year, but it's been a great experience.

Dont feel bad, it took me about that long. Good to hear you got it running. You'll have to let us know if you can really feel the differance with the mini-stroker. I know that my 4.6 is a definate advantage over my dads stock 04' 4.0, especally in the lower end of the rpm range.

PICS!!!!!!

Yeah, the pics are kinda unimpressive because they look almost exactly like the pics from last January! In fact, it's kinda hard to tell which are which...

Here's the last one in the old shop.



I'll snap a few more, but it really doesn't look any different from this time last year!

Done!

It took a bit of work to get the hood aligned properly. That's a two person job. I didn't have the latch lined up right, so when you released the hood, it kinda torqued to one side rather than popping straight up. I couldn't have seen that from the driver's seat. Also worked on getting the hood/fender gaps just right.

We drove it around for about 20 miles and it ran brilliantly. Now I just need to get the a/c recharged and get it inspected.

At some point over this build, I swapped out the wheels and tires with my other WJ, which is a DD for Mrs K. I really don't like those Limited rims and the tires on there are crap, so I dumped them on the "project". So I've been shopping around for another set of Silverblades, but I really haven't found much. Eh, there's plenty of time, I guess.

Anywhoo....

So is there a notable differance in it with the new mini-stroker vs a stock 4.0?

It's too early to tell. I only put about 20 miles on it and never let it get above 3K rpms. I'll post back after the first oil change (500 miles).

In the meantime, I really want some option for those wheels. I guess those are chrome Rogues. I don't really like them and they're not in the best of shape. But if I could clean em up a bit and get the Rogue silver finish, I would. If anyone knows how to do that, I'd love to hear it.

It has about 800 miles on it now since the rebuild. I don't really notice a significant increase in power. It's definitely better (but not explosive) above 3K rpms, which is an odd place for this motor to make more power. I I did some timed runs - mostly 50-70 mph - before the rebuild and I haven't done those again yet. Those measures should tell me more. Also, it's still the stock TB and exhaust - both of those items could make this motor perform closer to my original expectations.
