V8 conversion

I am planning a v8 swap in my '91 YJ, has anyone used the Advanced Adapter kit? How does it compare to Novack parts/kit?

I'd like to know if there is a difference too. I'm doing a V8 swap in my CJ. I know advanced is a little less expensive.

I would suggest you look over the kits closely. "Low balling" an engine conversion is not the way I would go, if I was you. Look at the motor mounts. Look at how everything is engineered. You would be surprised at the differences. Check it out closely and then decide.

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.

So JB? I hadn't heard of them. Great. Now I have one more to compare. Thanks for the suggestion.
