My friend's new 81 CJ5 with a 4-banger is turning out to be more work than ever thought of. Since she got it less than 2 months ago, it hasn't driven for more than a week without having some kind of problem. We've replaced the coil, distributor, spark plugs and wires, carb tune up, new fuel pump, and other stuff. Nothing will work to help this thign run better. It keeps stalling as soon as the gas pedal is released - warm or cold. It's never even been offroad. Now it's time to consider a new engine and tranny. We want EFI and something that doesn't require excessive modification for installation. So could enyone recommend anything or point me to a website that shows what's involved with a swap for this little jeep? Basically all I'm looking for is a reliable,easy, cost efficient swap. She'll probably budget $3500 for this project.
