Xpress Yes, unfortunately you have a TBI model. The 4.0 throttle body was made for MPFI intakes, not your single injector style.

Remove the intake pipe from the throttle body. If there is a big injector inside, the 4.0 swap won't work.

Tyewilly The 4.0 throttle body will fit '91+ 2.5s with mpi, unfortunately it won't fit '87 - '90 2.5s with tbi.

4.0 throttle body upgrade compatable???

I have a 1990 YJ with the enimic 2.5l. I've been reading about the 4.0 TB upgrade and what I can tell is that if you have the 4 bolt intake then you can upgrade, if you have the 3 bolt intake then you can't.

Here's the skinny, I just looked at mine and it looks like it has 4 bolts but they are not symetrical spacing. They don't look like the hole will line up on the 4.0 TB's that i've seen for sale.

My TB pattern 4.0 TB pattern

Any ideas if I would be able to make the swap???
