Triple88a ripbiker13 i did a wheelie in my TJ the other night.. 4Lo and dropped the clutch.. and HOLY KRAP front tires lifted off. i'm afraid for the d35 though so i dont plan on trying it again soon..

RIPBiker13 I pulled the front tire off the ground on my bike (it's not a crotch rocket), and my Jeep, but that was because I hit a berm WAY too hard.

Ok, just so you all know. I actually talked to Hesco last year about building a motor for me. 5295 complete, to my door. This is not a kit, it is a completely new engine. Not even using my existing block. There is a 200 dollar core charge if I don't send them a block back.

They assured me that my Jeep will not know the difference between a 4.0 and their stroked 4.9. The computer and emissions will all not be affected. They know what they are doing.

Hesco Inc. - High Performance Engine Service

They are already working on a stroked version of the 3.8. I've heard rumors of a 5.0.

Triple88a Thedon is that pic taken at hells gate?
09-05-2007 01:35 AM
thedon A stroked 4.0 is a good way to go. have a freind how put on a superchager in 4 hours. But if you dont want to take down the motor or have low miles and only want more power I would go with a supercharger my self.
09-05-2007 01:04 AM
naterg Um. I am pretty sure, regardless of all the parts added, you will need at least a small tune...

Nope. ECU knows no difference. Engine comes complete with new injectors, sensors, fuel lines, intake manifold, high vol oil pump, high vol water pump.... it is literally a complete and well thought out process. Your computer doesn't know the difference AND you can run it on regular 87 octane.

Installed an turbo kit (+intercooler) in about 5-6 hours which requires removal of exhaust manifold and running oil lines and drilling the oil pan and then trying to figure out intercooler piping and then wiring the piggy back to throw in some more fuel. A low boost 5psi supercharger kit is much much simpler than that.

A v8 swap for a 00 to 06 to meet emission requirements would cost around $10,000.00 at least or not more.
To do a Hemi motor is closer to $15,000.00 to $20,000.00 or more if you do not have to change the axles and trans.
Buts thats my thoughts on it.
If I could i would do a motor swap to a diesel.
When I say stroker, I mean stroking out your existing 4.0 engine. As far as your vehicle is concerned, a stroker is just a 4.0 engine. Works with existing emissions and the existing computer. No customization needed. Pull the old, drop in the new.

Have you ever installed a supercharger? You will have almost as many hours in that as you would an engine swap.

I'm just waiting for my 4.0 to crap out so I can put a diesel in. I found a Detroit diesel 3-53 w/ turbo to put in. I'll make it fit!

Heh-heh, he said STROKER!

AzTJ I agree with Debruins - If I'm looking to make power, I'd go with a EFI V8.
09-02-2007 07:08 PM
debruins yeah but for the better one its 5 grand, and even for 3 grand you could prob put a diesle in or at least pay for most of it
