engine swap help & advice...
i have a 95 YJ w/ the little 4cyl. it's been a decent engine till a couple months ago. i put 32's on it w/ a 4" lift. now wont get out of it's own road..when i went from Ohio to NC was painfull...alot of times driving in 3rd-4th gear and sometimes in 2nd. now starting to get a high pitch noise from under engine..unsure from where. just starting to look i maybe putting more money into engine than it's worth.
i always wanted to do a 350 swap i figure maybe time to start looking @ options. i'm still a complete noob when it comes to swaps like this, i'm used to working on import cars. i figure if i do the swap i will need a 350, new tranny etc. i'm unsure if there is a certian kind i should be looking for? should i keep this a 5 speed or change to automatic? what else i may need. gears i may need to run.
right now the YJ is my every day driver but someday would like to take it on a trail for the 1st time.
guess just wondering what ppl use and sugest for engine & Tranny. i have done searches and alot of stuff i find list several kinds of engines etc..and i dont know if i should stay away from some and go w/ others...figure best way to find out is ask everyone here. this site is always a great source of information
thanks for any info.
95 YJ, 4" suspension lift, 32's, 2.5l 4 cyl (350 built and waiting to be installed in spring, along with ford 8.8 rear end)
