Re: 4.7L V8 in a Jeep
If you are talking new, the 4.7 is only sold as a short block + heads and valves. It runs about $6,000. You would have to assemble it yourself with new chains and cams. Intake, injectors,valve covers, throttle plates, about another $2,000. Then you would have to drop another $2,000 on a harness, another $1,000 on a pcm and custom programming. Another 1.5k for a fuel tank, module, and fuel lines. custom motor mounts, figure out what tranny you want (45fre 5 speed auto is long, $4500) (NV-4500 $2,000) + bell housing and clutch hydrolics. (same as a TJ) If you are talking TJ, the buss is compatable and will drive your dash. Analog gauges on a CJ-YJ will work with stock sensors. Custom exhaust, catalysts etc with dual O2 sensors, probably another $1500. Plus labor for the swap.
I think Burnsville or somebody does this swap, might want to check there. In my opinion, a waste of money.
