232 CID AMC upgrade

is ther anyone with the experience of upgrading a 232 ?
For example what can I do to gain more power and torque.

I lik e to hear from people, all the advice is welcome , because I want to keep this original engine.

Another question is: does the fuel injection of a 258 fit on a 232 engine

Thanks in advance

Re: 232 CID AMC upgrade

Hi Berg and welcome....
You have a fellow jeeper next door in Holland...Nix

There is not a lot you can do with the 232....I would think that you would want better gas mileage considering what you pay per liter of petrol....

If I remember correctly, the 232 and 258 are basically the same except for displacement...so, if you were to pick up a Mopar FI conversion for the 258, I 'think' it would fit.

However, there are a lot of other options that will give you more power with less fuel....assuming you could find a donor engine....being in the Netherlands limits your choices of the 'typical' swap.

But to answer your question...do a search on HEI/TFI, and the Nutter bypass...after that, there is not a lot you can do without rebuilding the engine with hi performance parts....

If you're intent on fuel injection, go with a MegaSquirt system. It can be fully tailored for the 232, and you will learn a lot by installing it.
