Gotta swap out my engine, (wich one?)
Just had my 84 CJ7 diagnosed with spark scatter and a chronic case of blowback. So being as it looks terminal, I need to swap out the engine. My questions is: all things being equal, what is the best engine to swap for my 258 i6? I was going to go with a chevy 350 small block, but have been told horror stories about putting them in a CJ. Not the least of which is that I would have to replace my tranny to go with it. I have also been told that I cant go wrong with a 4.0 efi, but it just doesnt sound powerfull enough. So now, Im leaning toward a remanufactured '77 Wagoneer 360 V8. Any opionions you all have would be helpfull. Thanks.
