Hi (first time to post)
I have been lurking for a while and I find a lot of great info on this board.
My question is: I just replace the engine in my 2000 TJ 4.0 Litre inline 6. I spent a good amount of money having an engine built to be a torque monster. I had a RV cam installed, ported and polished head, etcc. and since I installed it it seems it has less power now than the old tired motor. It runs great, idles smooth, gas miolage is normal, but I thought it would have Guts now, and it is a gutless wonder. It pulled my boat better with the old motor.
I am wondering if the cam sensor is not spot on will this cause it? It is the only thing on the motor that I had to time? Also could the valve springs need adjustment after a while to bring them in to a fine tune. I am totally confused.
It has about 3000 miles on it now and it runs a bit better but it just doesn't have any pulling power that the six is known for.
I have driven jeeps most of my life so I am no Jeep newbie , but this is puzzling me.
Thanks in advance
