Swapping a 350/4L60E into myb cj 7
I have a CJ with a tired engine (258)and a manual T5. I would like to end up with fuel injection, a little more power, and an auto. I have a friend who put in a 400 enging and a 4L60 trans in a CJ, and loves it. I am thinking of doing something similar. I think I want to end up with a 350/4L60. I thought of buying a complete truck (maybe wrecked) then using the engine, computer, Fuel injection, and the trans. Then part out the rest.
BTW, I have 4:88's and need the OD.
I think that the '87 and newer have the 4L60 (which from my understanding is just a 700r with the electronic shift stuff?) am I right?
Is ther specific years I should stay away from?
Do you guys think this is a good direction?
The reason I'm considering this is my 258 is burning about 1 quart/300 miles, my carb sucks, and I would like an auto. I have also thought about getting a 4.0 HO engine with the FI.
I'm open to any suggestions.
