wytetrash If anyone needs a complete swap harness, (already completed, guaranteed running, I had it in my running 5.2 swapped TJ) let me know. There are several who can vouch for me, BellaPSD is one of them, along with some others. I was sucessful in completely parting out my TJ, and would love to help another Jeeper out. I was only looking for $400. Its for a manual trans, all emissions components worked properly, no check engine lights, already wire loomed and ready to go! PM me if interested.

I'm in the same "Jeep/boat" as you. I'm also running a manual 5.9 with a manual 5.2 PCM. Not ideal for sure. I think the 5.9 running on a 5.2 PCM actually runs worse than a stock 5.2 with 5.2 PCM. Been looking for a manual 5.9 PCM forever now!! But will soon settle on a Flyin Ryan Performance tune. Only held off because the cost will be around $475 compared to finding a used 5.9 manual PCM.

BY THE WAY your 5.9 TJ even has hiLine fenders same as mine!

Yes contact Ryan at FRP
http://www.frptuning.com/product-p/sct9603.htm

or Marty at UTW Awesome Performance
http://utawesomeperformance.com/store/c2/Tuners.html

Marty deals in nothing but Dodge Magnum engines and has done a lot of work to get more performance out of them.

jpin86 Here is my computer. 5.9, manual transmission, CCD data bus. You might want to have your 5.2 ecm reflashed. You can have it tuned to run your 5.9 better than a stock 5.9 ECM. I’m still going to have mine flashed, but I’m running a bigger cam and higher compression. From what I’ve read, flyin Ryan is the man to flash these old JTEC computers.

Unless there's a part# for a 5.9 mt pcm I could just buy off the shelf but I haven't been able to confirm one.

wildman4x4nut Wytetrash, Bummer about your Jeep. Enjoyed reading your build.

Well not a lot going on here in central WA right now. Still waiting for the weather to warm up so I can be out in the garage for any length of time. Snowed on Wednesday and then tried again Thursday and Friday.
Took my engine block, heads and crank to the machine shop to have everything checked out. Block will get hot tanked and then spec'd to make sure it's all good. Heads are new EQ monster heads but not sure what lift the valve springs are set at. And then the stroker crank is also a unknown since I had traded for the short block. So it's getting checked for balance. Got other parts coming in right now also so hopefully the weather will cooperate and I can get busy.

Hey man I just went through your build. The jeep looks great! why did you decide to part it out instead of selling complete?
Easier to sell that way, people don’t have money for a complete one. I can use the winch and a few other things on something else anyway.

I completely understand I donít think I could ever sell my TJ. I am prepping to sell my daily driver which hasnít been easy.

Jcar516 Sorry, I misread your original post. Thats a good point and I do have an occasional misfire but I’ve been having issues with the pump in my fuel cell that I planned on addressing this week. But From the research I had done before buying the computer the general consensus was it would be alright to the run the 5.2 pcm just obviously not get all the performance out of it. There were no part #s for 5.9 manual trans computers when I was looking which is why I had settled on that.
