How difficult would it be to mount a 5.7 Hemi rate motor in my YJ? I could have motor and transmission mounts made, but does anyone have any idea which transmissions might be used for this? I'd rather use the Mopar V8 than a GM V8. Manual tranny by the way
What motor do you have in it now. Because I believe the 4 banger has the exact same motor mount positioning as the 5.7 does on the frame. Also I think they use the NV4550 (numbers could be off a bit someone else can verify) behind the hemi.

I know guys are using the old-school 727 auto trans behind the 5.7s, bellhousings match...and Keisler just came out with a 6 speed stick conversion kit for the LX cars (Magnum / Charger / 300). Granted the Keisler is only RWD, but there were TONS of 4x4 Rams and Ramchargers back in the day with 727s (or the OD version, the 518).
