That looks good...I definitely plan on doing a BBC sometime in the future. I'd like to hear some about the engine. I've got a "mild" SBC in mine putting out in the neighborhood of 550 hp, but want to step up to a healthy big block when I get a few seasons in on this engine.

What are your plans for this setup? Got any plans yet for headers/exhaust? How is your fender clearance going to look?

southshore30 04-24-2010 08:48 PM

you gonna run 4wd as well. if so what is you setup. My buddy is doing a healthy big block in his 7 as well but just 2wd. He just wants a fun around town tire burner. Looks good, keep posting progress

kw89425 04-24-2010 09:30 PM

thanks guys. it is 4x4 ton running gear with a 465 and 205. not sure on the headers yet. the motor is a 496 stroker with 4340 crank and rods je pistons full roller with a big ole cam. makes right at 600 hp. the motor went 6.44 at 106 mph in the 1/8 on pump gas in a 2900 lbs tube chassis on pump gas... yeah i know its overkill but i had the cj and the motor just screamin to be used. if i can get driveshafts and joints to hold i think everything else will be ok. going to brace the frame all i can too. i will take any advice on this project and header ideas as well.

Scooter402 04-24-2010 10:09 PM

If you've got exhaust fabrication skill, that's the route I'd go...I built my own headers for my SBC...I know there's readily available Jeep/SBC swap headers out there, but they're for stock/slightly modified engines...too anorexic for my use. Anything else would have required some extensive modification, so I ended up building them...well, greatly modifying an existing set, but still....I built them. :2thumbsup: Mine have 1 3/4" primaries into 3 1/2" collectors...I have yet to find those available for a SBC into a Jeep.


Keep the pics coming! :cheers:

I personally think you should have gone with a bigger engine......



:laugh:



Maybe you could've bought a couple of turbines from an Apache attack helicopter? Orrr even see if NASA will sell you a solid rocket booster from the now-defunct space shuttle program? I think those are rated at about 60,000 lbs of thrust each... :thumbsup:

Just ribbing ya.. I'm extremely jealous. I have dreams of a 502 cobra jet in a CJ...... *sigh*

kw89425 04-25-2010 06:56 AM

gas for the big block will be bad enough. what is life without dreams huh:D

That thing is going to be huge, I just noticed your newer frame with the 1 ton axles spring over and huge shackles!

kw89425 04-25-2010 08:10 AM

im putting 38.5 boggers on it. i may need a step ladder

southshore30 04-25-2010 08:31 AM

you will definately need a ladder! I know my friend modified a set of long tube headers for his. I know he had to change the passenger side extensively right by the spring hanger. He then went 3" tube to a self fabricated X pipe, 44 series flowmasters and straight out the back. He only had room for the X pipe since no transfer case. He has not run it yet either but it's going to be a monster!
