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.....
1997 Jeep TJ Wrangler. 2.5L four cylinder with Five speed manual..... biggest POS i've ever owned. Will be replaced at the end of this month with a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500. Jeep no more baby couldn't be happier
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 ?
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.
