Very nice. :thumbsup:

Its good to see something other than a Chevy motor.

I'm about to start a Grand Cherokee 4.7 V8 swap in mine.

A guy from Cape Cod Jeep CLub put a heavily warmed over 5 liter ford in his YJ with 37" Claws. You can check it out on their website on "member jeeps." i think it might be

THe guy is one hell of a mechanic. His has the BBK intake, hes got aluminum heads, its one nasty beast.

Also, i'm lookin forward to seeing a 4.7l swap into a TJ.

I like it when I saw 5.0 engine swap I was hoping it was a 302 and not a 305.I think I one guy is right you could use some flex and some loom clams to clean the engine compartment.Still yet nice job.

4.0l sahara 08-21-2008 09:15 AM

now just add a new tb,upper and lower intake,cam and a new set of heads and it will be a real beast.

looks bad you didn't make a how-to when you did it!

krawler510 08-21-2008 10:41 AM

Looks sweet. I bet it sounds amazing

Laxstar46 08-21-2008 11:17 AM

I like it. I woudl love to see a 4.7L go into a jeep. or what I would also like to see is an old ford 300I6 to go in there. 4.9 liters of inline six power.....

patricknolan 08-21-2008 11:25 AM

Good job on that. I have a 2.5 also and my dad has a 5.0 out of a '66 tourino. Was thinking about putting it in there. Probably not though

AlTheKillerr 08-21-2008 11:33 AM

nicely done sir :2thumbsup:

472cid 08-21-2008 11:48 AM

Yea i will clean it up more i was just impatient to take pictures i will post a couple more when i am finished completely. If anyone has questions i can answer them. I can tell you all the parts you need. It is not a hard swap. I took it done the freeway and it felt awesome to get in the fast lane AND PASS SOMEONE. Yes i said pass some one not get passed and a dirty look because the wind was keeping the 2.5 from the speed limit

That's great !! I just made a post about this two days ago !!

Post up a parts list. THings that were a PITA. What adaptors, mounts ? How'd you deal with the clutch stuff ? Or did you swap the entire motor/trans ? AX-15 ? NV3550 ?

Overheating ? after market rad. ?

Parts sources ?

A/C ?

power steering adaptation ?

Keep/loose the air pump/EGR ?

Stock oil pan ?

Donor wiring harness or aftermarket ( if so who ).

As you can see, I'm really into this idea being my 4.0L is dead and a 5.0 engine set can be had for $300 ( complete ), the wiring harness ( aftermarket ) is $475, and adv. adaptors for the NV3550 is $275 with clutch. Where as the 4.0L by its self is $800 locally.

Looks good... Although you ruined a perfectly good Jeep with more ford parts... J/K.

Have you taken it down the road yet? That lil Jeep will be a rocket!
