c5wagner My cost were petty decent
Engine $800
Transmission with adapters/shifter $900
Ecu/reprogramming $200
Wire harness for easy hookup $200
Engine mounts were custom made with some scrap metal I had/bushings $20
All new gauges ran about $100
I never hooked up all the ac stuff so that would've ran me around $500
Custom length drive shafts were $500 front and rear

It's not exactly cheap, but well worth it. I probably could've went cheaper but this was all junk yard stuff anyway

So how much do you think I'm looking at besides the engine

Just get the ECU programmed, any needed adapters (advanced adapters or novak adapters), wire harnesses, etc. When I leave CA, I'll put the v8 in again.
For sure ya I have a guy that'll smog it under the table

Engine swap on my yj

I have a 1989 wrangler yj with a 2.5l engine. Currently that engine is going to crap. I've been considering my choices and have thought about a engine swap. What I wanted to know from you guys is how hard would it be to drop a 4.7l stroker engine in it and what all would I have to do
