Do you grasp the concept of the big block engine? [example chevy] 396,427,454 all same block size, can be stroked to over 600 cubic inches, so you can go big, IF you have the coins, so by all means ''GO BIG'' put you some injection on top that blower. headers isn't that much of an issue, money, or fab skills will solve most any issue with a jeep.

Or should I go ford? or amc.. the only issue I have with AMC is that the parts are hard to find and expensive. I also know that amc's were notirously innefficient and I believe the 360 and 401 had substantial oiling issues as well as lower power outputs than those in its class. but under no circumstances will I do a 350.. I am going for uniqueness, guys!
headers are not a problem. i havent used all of what i have yet. a blown 496 man i thought i had problems lol. mine is a handfull to say the least.

The problem with all that motor is can you drive it and can you construct the Jeep to not kill yourself or your passengers IMHO. Big motor power can be very dangerous.

no i love it but its not really a toy now cant just be all willy nilly, i mean it will get you hurt to quick, and its not something you can let your buddy drive either. still if its what you want then build it just respect the power when you get it done and expect to break parts. have fun

When I worked at the Chrysler dealer I put an oil pan gasket on a D150 w/a slant six. That was definitely different
