I've been working on getting my frame sandblasted and repainted to prevent rust. Obviously to do so everything comes out of the jeep. Body, engine, transmission, axles, gas tank, all gone.
As everyone knows the 2.5L is lacking in the power department. So after having it out I figured why not take it apart and "clean it out". The only problem with this is I've never taken an engine apart before.
To get to the point, what should I replace to improve performance. I assume piston rings and seals, but I don't really know what else. I'm not really interested in altering the engine any, such as putting in new cams or increasing displacement. Also any tips on taking an engine apart for a newbie like me.
Thanks a lot
