LOL, wow I never knew my Jeep would generate this much interest.. Yes, I am having the engine shipped from Novak in the states to here in Bali, Indonesia. I am originally from NY but now live here for the past ten + years.
Matt G- Hood I designed and had custom made here in Bali, the Gas filler in the back has been sealed along with the drop gate so the back is smooth with custom LED lights, will get some more pics up when time allows.. : )
How do you plan to mate the 6.0? What kind of adapters, wiring harness, fuel injection ect. The reason i ask is becuse i also have a ls2 6.0 that i have and i am wondering if i should try to mate this to my cj7 with an ax-15 tranny. Also what kin d of tranny do you plan to run? Very interested in this whole thread. Thanks.
Everything is included from Novak, I will be changing my Tranny though to an automatic 700R4 that has been upgraded to beaf it up.. my current setup is the original 258 inline 6 with the T176 Tranny and Dana 30 case. so all I will be using from my current set up is the Transfer case and Novak provides the adaptor for that.. wiring from what I understand from Novak is five or six wires but we will see, its never as easy as it sounds especially with my Jeep being a right hand drive... Will keep you guys posted...
@ Matt G Ya took a while before I figured out how to drive the thing, right hand drive and shifting with my left hand.. not following the gas tank deal?? what do you mean?? the gas filler location??
On the hood, NO bondo, the "Gills" are actually cut from the hood and the scoop as well is all steel, no BONDO to be had! I will get some better hood pics up soon.. : ) No build thread, I am new to this posting stuff.. I am a quiet guy from Bali not use to all the attention.. LOL... I like the CJ of the month though, cash prize?? LOL...
This is one of my favorite jeeps on the forum. Very tasteful and clean.
