Ideas/Suggestions for LS Motor Swap, HELP!!!
Heres the facts:
I have a 1979 CJ-7, all stock except 4in suspension, and 3in body and minor upgrades on accessories.
Electronic motors are not in my "experience", Everything has a Carb, and I stay away from computers and sensors.
Its time for more power, and a V-8, L33 will be the donor for the transplant from a Z-71. I have complete motor, trans, and T-case There is nothing wrong with motor, 4L80E trans, or the T-case.
Motor conversion for me is not an issue, its the electronics that I'm not familiar with. I want to put the motor in, with the auto tranny and T-Case I already have from the 2005 Z-7. I want to keep everything electronic like it was in the Z-71, push button 4wd, electronic ignition, elect fuel, computer, sensors everything.....
If I have to swap T-case, I have found an adapter already. now with front axle being reversed, this bring up any big issues? Should I plan on finding some axles too? If so, what is the easiest to work with that I can find in a junk yard? I'm thinking older chevys with Danna 44's or something from a old ford.
Give me you ideas, suggestions, I've put alot of planing into this already, and want other opinions before I start, jus to see if I have missed anything. Be respectful, we're all grown.
