Well, I am new here. I bought a 1990 YJ a while back and found out today that the DEAL I thought I got wasnt so much of a deal. The 4.2L was trashed!!! Already rebuilt, .060 over and a set of frozen piston rings on one of the cylinders. The rebuilder said it appears that someone put BB's in the engine because the bottom of the head was peened from something metal or very hard in the motor.
SSSOOOO...the plan is a 4.6L stroker!!!
Tell me if I am wrong....but the bottom end from a 4.2 in a 4.0 motor?
Gonna run a weber 38 DGES, header and prolly a CLIFFORD intake...unless someone has a better intake to run. Engine will be .030 over w/ shallow dish pistons. Planning on about 9.5 to 1 compression.
This is my first JEEP and I'm thinking prolly not my last.
Eventually it will wear 35's of some brand so want the motor to make the power now so wont have to worry about it later.
Any ideas on distributors?
Ok...so being new to the JEEP world....I know I prolly have about 1000 questions that have been asked by every new guy here. So I will leave my discussion open to ya'll to hopefully advise me in the right direction.
Thanks for the help in advance
