LMAO. That is the shop I am talking about. I was talking about keeping the AX15 though and going with a 4BT that costs about $3k. That was to have all the wiring done, have them do the engine, and fabricate a few things it would take to make it fit. Because of the PITA it is to do that I am going to do a 302 instead. I would preffer the diesel, but its just too expensive.

Oh I see you are from the philly area, I grew up in Morgantown PA.

oh yea, 10k is way too much, I am at 7k including the jeep haha, I would never pay someone to do this swap.

A V8 is definietely cheaper

Fantastic job brother! very creative on everything you did, I am big into the electrical fab work myself and can appreciate the time and energy going into rewiring everything to work. I will be checking this one out as well to see the progress.

Subbed as i just jumped into a 4BT build myself! Found a 4BT all ready to go with trans for what sounds like a great deal and already have a buyer for my 4 banger. I sent you a PM about the brackets and I do have wiring harness questions. Part of me would love to rip out all of my crappy '95 wiring and start from scratch but I think wiring is too much for me to take on and possibly too much for my buddy who redid a bunch of my wiring when i bedlined my YJ inside and out.

Do you have any advice in the wiring department?

Swap to a 4BT diesel in the future? Most likely.

Wow, it has been a while since I updated, I have been way to busy, that most I have done to my Jeep is mount a Plow on it to push all the snow we had all winter.

I got the intercooler off of ebay, there are tons of cheap "Ricer" aftercoolers on ebay in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

Thanks guys, maybe it will be road legal this summer, but I said that last summer....

wiring is a PITA, no way around it haha

You can get just as much for a 4 cyl. The only reason people buy stock motors usually is because they are scared to swap in a better motor or they wouldn't be looking at either stock motors. They would go with a v8 or diesel. Usually they have a jeep all ready with a bad motor to drop the motor in so they can make a buck or drive it.
