Sounds pretty snazzy. <img src="http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/cool6.gif" alt="" /> Is there much turbo lag? Never heard of anyone putting a turbo on the 4.0. What's with the Honda seats. They better be really comfy if you put them into a Jeep.

Not much turbo lag, all proper work was done to add on the turbo, I did not just slap it on there. Forged pistons, Lowered compression, and did all other necessary work. The seats are from a honda because 1, they were the best looking I could get, 2, I was going to releather them anyway. Just because they are from a Honda doesn't mean I like Hondas. My daily driver car is a Toyota Supra.

My dad runs a junk yard.... I bought the jeep for 100 dollars, had no floor, no interior, bad motor, just wheels and it rolled... I got the engine from the junk yard and rebuilt it completely with all supporting modifications for the turbo... I have been working on it for 4 years so far... started when I was 14

Nice mods, must have taken a lot of time. Is it just me or is there a lot more clearance for the front tires than there is with the rear?

The rear shocks had a leak on them when I took that picture, I have a whole different custom setup now, sits much better, like I said, will take more pics when I get a chance.
