google titan strokers? Jeepstrokers.com too
Golen has a good warantee also.

Remember, you get what you pay for.

I remember when the Golen Engine was ALL the rage. After awhile people started popping up and *****ing about the cams that Golen was using. Skinny lobes that gave heartburn to the lifters causing failures... Then, when you live in the midwest, west, north, or anywhere else other than the east coast (which if memory serves me correctly) Golen is located, you had to then take your engine out of your rig again, ship it thousands of miles, WAIT, then have them ship it back and try again.....

Just do your homework, take it to a machine shop, have them do what they gotta do and pay them a few hundred bucks to build the short block. Long block to if they're nice. Cost? About 2,000 to 4,000 depending on what you buy for it. You get to do you own grocery shopping for the "food" you want instead of having some company deliver their choice(s) to you... At one end its ease, at the other end headache. Your choice. Personally, I'd rather learn/do homework, buy it myself and do it my way.... Go to jeepstrokers.com and learn learn learn...

It can be done VERY well for about 2700.00 bucks. And that means new accessories too!

It wasn't the Golen motor that was wrong it was the cam company. Crane cams camshafts were breaking lobes off on all motors.

Also not looking to make a jeep race car haha that was pretty funny. I just like many other jeepers want that extra power to get up that hill turning our bigger tires.... and pullin out those of our buddies that are non jeepers
When you say something is broke, are you talking motor or other drivetrain related parts?

what are the emission laws? Can a 98 have a carb?

No carb. Should have 98 or newer emissions equipment and engines. Depending on local Nazis or not the SBC isn't even an option for some. Cross breeding is frowned upon.
