I went with Stetson block huggers. I could not get the stock manifolds to work.

When I had the PCM reprogrammed they eliminated the anti-theft.

Thank you! I enjoyed building it, ready to do another! LOVE this Jeep!

I actually just took it through emissions for the first time and passed! Good to go for 2 years now!

Wow it's been awhile since I have been here!

I have not done speedo and tach yet. I used Phantom II gauges for everything else and plan on putting them in for speed/tach. Just need an extra $500 bucks to buy them! Quadratech makes new dash prices to fit the custom gauges.

Jeep is running great!

I had to put in a seperate one for my gauge. On the passenger side, towards rear there is a plug in the side of the block. You can remove that plug and screw in an additional temp sender. Then wire directly to ur gauge.

I didn't notice it if you said it, but if you dont mind saying, about how much did the project cost you?? I've got around 5 grand for a motor swap and want a 5.3. Will that even put a dent in it?? Thanks

I had about $5000 into it. That is buying all top of the line parts. It could be done cheaper, but that's up to you. I am very happy with the adapters and wiring harness from Novak. I know there are others who will do it cheaper.

Getting the motor, trans, and ECU for a good price is critical. I paid $1500 for everything out of a wrecked out 2004 truck. Make sure you get the wiring harness and gas pedal assemblies!

After you get all that horse power, you're going to need better axles. I babied my stock ones for about year before doing a D44 swap with ARB lockers. Another $3500!

I have to say, it was worth every penny!

U can use your transfer case and drive shafts. There are adapters for the TC. That's what I used.

I was able to reuse my drive shafts too.

Good luck with it!
