I'm in the process of doing a 2.5 to a V8. I really wouldn't call it hard, but it is alot of work. I'd say from what research I did the SBC is the most common. I wouldn't go any other way cause I'm a GM guy.

Do research on all the forum's out there, Ive got great advise from some guy's....oh! by the way....It's NOT cheap!

Check out my build, I'm not building a "show" jeep. This ones going in the mud.
