not sure about the trans

the D30 can handle a mild V8, the D35 won't last long

What transmission do you have in your jeep now? The easiest trans for that swap would be an automatic transmission. How much horsepower does your 327 have? If it is mild, you should have no problem as long as you are careful.

Take care,
Check "YJ V6 Conversion Swap" if you want to see my "frame up" restoration that anyone can do.

Check "WWII Willy's restoration and usage..." if you want to see THE ORIGINAL JEEP IN ACTION.
