350 swap

My dad and I want to swap a 350 small block into my 98 TJ I currently have a 4 cyl bolted to a 3 speed automatic. I'm 18 and graduated from high-school and not sure if I'm starting college either this spring or fall.

I was wondering if anyone had done a Chevy small block V8 or a Chevy V6 swap with the TH350 transmission, retaining the OEM transfercase.

Some other subjects I've started thinking about were

Carbureted or Injected?

How/Where should I place my air box?

Will I need a leveling kit to compensate for a heavier motor?

Any advice and input is welcome. Thanks for reading.

Novak Conversions has an extensive knowledge base about doing engine swaps into TJ's. I highly recommend checking out their site. Here is a link to info on the TH350 but you can also read up on their thoughts about your other questions. The GM HydraMatic TH350 Transmission - Novak Conversions

I've looked quite a lot into that site which is where I found out I could keep my transfercase.
