motor swap

What is the best v8 swap for an 87 YJ. I would like to put a 5.o in but I think a 350 chevy would be cheaper. If you have done the swap on either or another I would like to know cost and how hard installation is. Thanks

an AMC 360 will bolt to your tranny, chevy 350 conversion mounts make it easy if you want to go that way, but the adapters are EXPENSIVE
i have seen many wranglers with chevy 350 in them.. it works well, buy theu spend a ton of $$$$ doing it

it's sort of still a cj thingy....
I spent around $3000 total, but that includes everything!! $750 complete motor, $350 tranny, then motor mounts from Hicks 4x4 were the cheapest, tranny to tran case adapter, linkage adapter, $250 radiator from 4wd hardware which required no mods, thenb belts, hoses, misc, etc. Labor $700, exhaust, shifter, all combined total was around $3000. But it runs great--the installation went quick and looks professional. I don't regret it.
