Well, I found a great deal on a 91 Cherokee with an AX-15 and a 4.0, couldn't pass it up.(This is Jeep #7 now!!)
Some of you might remember I am in the process of rebuilding a Scrambler to be a DD for my wife, and I had bought a 2000 XJ engine with the complete FI and computer for a good deal.
After adding up how much it would cost me in extras to make it work, (o2 sensors, new vibration dampner, fuel pump, regulator) the older injection makes alot more sense. OBDII is a real hassle to retrofit if you dont have EVERYTHING.
I'm gonna swap the tranny, and the complete fuel injection setup and wiring harness into the Scrambler on the 2000 engine, and get rid of the 2000 injection and computer. Then I'll part out the rest of the XJ.
Another bonus is I now have a spare 4.0 long block I can mix and match with my 4.2 and get a stroker out of the deal for MY CJ-7.....
Here's my questions....
1) Can I use the older injection on the newer intake manifold? This would save me from swapping the manifold, and it looks better
2) Can I use the newer distributer with the older computer? Same reasons as above.
3) Can I use the newer flywheel with the older injection? Would save me a R&R and a resurfacing..
4)Anyone know how to remove the upper shifter from the AX-15 transmission??
