Anyone seen TJ engine swaps?

My '97 2.5 TJ is getting due for some more power. I would really like to do a 5.9 out of the TSI grand, or out of a Dodge pickup (with the NV4500). It looks like I can use the pcm out of the pickup, and everything will plug in (it cant be that easy). Anybody seen any V8 swaps in a TJ (keeping the fuel injection.) I found one shop that did a 4.7 in a 2001 TJ, but hardly any info other than a few small pics. I do realize the entire driveline will need to be upgraded...

Oh yeah, whats the going rate for a NV4500??

Thanks, and god bless America!!

Re: Anyone seen TJ engine swaps?

there is a guy....i cant remember his website....that took a 97 or 98 4 cylinder TJ and swapped in a Dodge truck 360. I know he used the PCM and all from the truck, but i dont remember what trans he used. In any case, he did the job RIGHT, and it lookked great. Just remember, if yo're going to be putting all that power in a TJ, you'd better be thinking about new axles. a 35C is not going to last long behind 245hp, and 340lb.ft. of torque with anything larger than stock tires!


Give me Jeep or Give me Death!!!

(Will trade functioning organs for CJ-7 or flatfender)
