TR upgrade?

I keep seeing references to the "TR upgrade". I've had my YJ for less a year and haven't yet heard what this is.
So I'm asking... What the heck is it and what are the benefits? I have an 88 Sahara with the 4.2 and an automatic.
I am really curious. Info please.

Re: TR upgrade?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] The TR upgrade is named after TeamRush Racing, a company from Southern Indiana which builds race car engines. The owner of TeamRush posts to this BBS, and well over a year ago saw the need for a practical and cost-effective upgrade to High Energy Ignition for the Jeep family. It so happened that the TeamRush Racing company has an IGNITION LAB in which all types of systems can be test run and evaluated. After doing some testing, TR developed a parts list for converting the Jeep engines to HEI using some off-the-shelf Ford distributor parts and some aftermarket advance springs. The TR systems are; in many ways; superior to the aftermarket HEI distributors that you see in all of the Jeep catalogs, and surpass the GM HEI graft-in conversions that so many 258 engines have been using for upgrading to High Energy Ignition. For our 304 AMC, The TeamRush Ignition Laboratory built a DUAL PICKUP distributor which has totally redundant systems for each pickup, giving us the ultimate in reliability......dual coils, dual modules,....etc. That's so when we are the last remaining gun owners in the US and the UN troops are trying to chase us down and capture us, we won't have to worry about ignition failure.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: TR upgrade?

I took off my HEI and put this on to try it.

It is way easier than an HEI and alot cheaper with parts for it at any store across america.
I'm keepin mine.
If you don't want to research all the parts and get them yourself, they sell them on e-bay.
It's a real simple bolt on deal.
Same as a tune-up.

Lead , follow , or WINCH ME OUT!!!!
