I'm thinking that you would have a heck of a time swapping it in seeing as the Lebaron is a FWD car... on top of that the turbo won't really do you much good in your jeep as the jeep is much heavier than the lebaron, not to mention the jeeps are ment to operate at lower engine speeds where the turbos are not as efficient.

Yeah I agree with that except that turbos don't work well at lower engine speeds. Diesels are that way
