Re: PLz dont hate me
Why would we hate you, some of us have run Zuki's as well, very capable vehicles, lots of fun.
The VW diesel swap is a 1.9 Turbo Diesel found in Canada, lots of hp and torque for a Zuki, unfortunately the engines are about $2K.
A V-6? Unless it was swapped the first time into a CJ, you probably won't find one. Jeeps only came with I-6's, no V-6's. The XJ (Cherokee) came with a V-6, but it was the 2.8 Chevy. A 4.3 would absolutely obliterate the running gear, have you talked with <font color=blue>Ranger Rick</font color=blue> on the Zuki BBS? He's running a 4.3 in his rig, too much power, he's had to upgrade almost everything.
I'd have to agree about the 1.6 swap, lots of pwer, easy bolt on, and it can be beefed as well for more hp. Also easy to find and cheap.
