Don't poke fun.

I was reading through some of my old JP magazines and read an article about a turbo for the 4.0. I was wonderin' if you could still install this after stroking the 4.0 to the 4.6.

Call the company see what they have to say.. keep in mind the turbo would be more for street use. I have a buddy with one on his YJ.. puts out he claim around 275 hp with the other mods he has done. Not really great for on the trail at slow speeds. But around town very fun. Did have to work with some over heating issues, so FYI on that.

I don't see why it wouldn't work, but as 4jeepn mentioned a turbo isn't really that well suited for low speed driving. I am no expert though, after all diesels use turbos for low end power. Have you considered a supercharger instead? It may be a better way to go. If I recall you were talking about feul injection too, you are going to need to address the programming for the computer for all of these mods. If the computer is not programmed properly you will be just wasting bunches of money.

Not planning on getting one due to the price, but that'd be a fun mod for some rich person out there. As you may have guessed, new to the whole world of wheelin', what are the pro/cons of a reservoir shock?

I have heard of people building their own turbos out of junkyard parts for around $200-$500. I don't personally know any of them, but it was a pretty big topic on Pirate for a while...

As far as reservoir shocks, the big pro is more liquid, so you get a smoother shock response with cooler temperatures. The only cons are mounting the reservoir (VERY VERY minor con) and price.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Turbo is pointless in a Jeep, but to answer your question it depends on your compression ratio. If you're running 10+:1 compression a turbo is going to blow your head gasket the minute it spools.

Kind of depends on what kind of wheelin you do. For rock crawling a remote resevoir shock really isn't needed. But if you are burning a lot of log roads or dunes where you are getting higher speed suspension articulation then they could be a benefit to you because of the reasons mentioned by anothers post.
