Hi Folks, been searching for a while and digging through the FSM's and keep getting conflicting information.
Back story: Currently have a 2.5L 5spd in my 1997 TJ... I was able to get a 4.0L engine/trans/t-case, wiring harness (body & engine), charcoal cannister, cpu from a 2003 donor. My research so far indicates that the 2003 fuel tank/system is a bit different as it has some additional components i.e flow control valve (#9 in the attached picture below) and a bunch of vapor hoses with connectors that interface with it. I live in CA and would need this to pass smog. Also, I understand the trouble involved with this swap is similar to swapping in a v8 etc. , at this point...(dare I say?) it is, what it is. So let's move past that.:smile2:
I understand that if I just purchase a fuel tank and the flow control valve setup from a similar year, I'll be good to go (I think)... Where I need some input (from you fine folks) on is coming up with a workaround to keeping my current fuel tank. I think the very least I would have to: 1.) make a harness adapter for the fuel pump module connector (from 03 wiring harness to 97 fuel pump module) 2.) purchase the flow control valve assembly with it's hoses. I haven't been able to find a schematic of fuel/vapor line system. I'm hoping someone out there has done something similar or can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance.
