Searching for 258 FI project parts
My YJ is a daily driver and tearing down the 258 and slapping on FI would take too long and the jeep out be out of commission. So here is my plan. Go to the yards, or search onlne, for a 258 that needs rebuilt. Here is the catch, i am also looking for any parts to an FI swap.
Rebuild the 258 and place the 4.0 head on it. Then set up the FI and wiring harness. For the 258 rebuild, what low end parts are best to get? (companies, tolerances??) Was there any 'prime' year for the 258 block?? The 4.0 head i have now is practilcy brand new so i dont think i will rebuild that. (just get it checked out and leveled) For the FI harness, what year vehicles do the stock harnesses match up best to? (less unnessasary wiring??, more than enough adaptors)???
Any suggestions in the FI sawp and 258 rebuild? I will take anything and everything... (i really dont want to build a stroker 4.0)....
