I agree. Use ur ecm, sensors etc and use the 97' block. Obd1 is way easier to modify too

0III0forlife OK. I will ask the stupid question...Why do you think it wont work? other than needing the pcm for the new motor, it should be a plug and play type of thing. Motor mounts are the same, bell housing is the same, heads are the same so therefore the manifolds will bolt on.

mracer71 It's $500 plus shipping or I got to go get it. a V8 would probably require more serious work, no? I was sort of looking into something straight forward with least of pain.

wasomma why not go to V8? how much are you paying for the new 4.0

Question - 97 4.0L wrangler motor into a YJ

I have a chance at getting a fairly fresh 97 4.0L to replace my ailing 4.0L . What would it take to get it mated to the YJ? I don't believe it's a plug and play but for those that know - please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Max.
