Re: 1983 CJ 7 engine swap ???
I am in the begining stages of a V8 swap into my 4cyl YJ. You do need to get a new trans. It really is best if you can find a complete doner rig. That way you can get everything you need. Motor, trans, clutch linkage, starter, alt, wiring (if fule injected) Carb (if not FI)
Another place to reconsider is new larger axels. Stock axels and oversized tires will probably make for a bad weekend. But like anyone on this board will tell you, the V8 in a jeep is worth a little trouble.
