If the numbers on that video are correct, my pump gas SBC makes more than that 572, and in a lighter package

I pass porches pulling a trailer and laughe at them do muscle gas engines have there place damm.rite but face it something like a jeep that sits 2 ft or more off the ground with a wheel base shorter than a fox body mustang isn't rite running 9 second quarter mile.
I am talking about something that will last the person years with 0 downgrade in proformance were as a big sloppy v8 although I.will agree does has its advantages but after 3000 miles its broke in and 20000 miles after that it starts looseing power and by 50000 ur lookin at haveing to rebuild it to get it back were it was in the first place.
And yes there is the diffrence of something that runs 3500 rpm and something that runs 7500. It is also directly related to why n 5 years ur motor will need rebuilt and ur Buddys diesel will need new injectors.
O and as for ur 496 I have 2 words for u twin turbo

well im waiting

Hard to say. There's a few videos from the same person, and what looks to be the same Jeep in a few, they all list different HP ratings. I see in one of the newer ones, he listed an 1/8 mile time, which is slower than what I ran, and I had to get out of it. It's a badass Jeep, just doesnt' seem "violent" enough for that much HP.
For the Jeeps they have in those videos though, they all look to be very well built and very clean!

I wish I had my v10 dodge truck back. way better than this 360 I have now. although it's no Viper engine, I still loved it, but it was 2wd and where I live I need 4wd to get out in the winter.

If you want "Wow factor," how about this:

Knowing that the AMC I6 is longer than even the LA-block V8, throw in an LA505 drivetrain from a later Dodge truck? Big Block-powered CJs are common enough that we can discuss them - but how many LA V10-powered Jeeps do you hear of?

Me being me, I'd build a MegaSquirt box to control the engine rather than transferring over the OEM electronics. Also, since the LA V10 is derived from the LA V8, transmissions should be simple (the LA505 came with an LA-patterned 47RE or 48RE anyhow, and the 47RE is essentially an A727/37RH with electronic controls and overdrive. The 48RE is slightly stronger than the 47RE.)

You may have difficulty wedging in the drivetrain - but, as I said, the LA V10 is shorter than the AMC I6, so you get some wiggle room. And, the engine itself is still relatively short (top-to-bottom) I think, so you can probably do it without breaking the hoodline.

You're in for a raft of fab work, but I'd think it would be worth it (but this is from a guy who wedged a twin turbo Buick GN V6 into a 1970 Bug - ripped out the back seat, move the firewall forward, figured out the fab & plumbing for the radiator, ... I built it as a strip car - after the speed test, Indiana State Police forbade registering it on the street, because they didn't have anything that could catch it.)

A little off subject but would have like to seen that, I love my old Buicks. When I was a kid there was a early 70's bug that had the front frame section of a front wheel drive, 455 powered Olds Toronado grafted into the back of the bug. Seen him at the track a couple of times, too sketchy to really hammer the throttle but had some giddy up.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.
