uplifted You can bolt and standard rwd trans (350,400,700 etc) behind the caddy 4100 but to be completely honest, there's a reson you got it for free... They were one of GM's biggest mistakes... Aluminum block with iron heads .. That poor engine went through changes to try and improve it.....It went from a 4.1 to a 4.5 to a 4.9 before it was discontinued in 95.... pass on it and find yourself a good SBC if your set on a V8....

thechink09 i just have a feeling it would be alot harder to find parts for that engine and i dont know if you can even use that tranny. but maybe someone else will know more then me

Zer0_rwtf I havent considered much right now I got the engine and tranny for free and figured id see what I could do with it, I figured it being a gm engine wouldnt be to big of a problem but maybe im wrong.

Just another engine swap question

Alright ive been surfing and trying to figure all this out for myself but with all that I have found I would rather have the opinions and comments from people that have done or know about it. Here goes, I have a 1995 rio grande edition wrangler with a 4cyl a 6" suspension lift sitting on 33" tires and other odds and ends . I recently got a hold of a recently rebuilt v8 out of an 85 cadillac its the 4.1 L HT-4100 V8 with the THM440 T4 tranny. My question is this, what would all yall recommend I do in this swap and what hardware would you recommend I use and such. I appreciate all the help. I will start posting pics and all once I get everything set up for those interested.
