jherrington wow, after getting all excited while reading this thread, that was a shit ending.

If they gave you an engine that doesn't run, I'd go after them faster than buzzards on road kill.

What did you find out?

Itsfun00 It just detatches the fuel line. There is a spring in the connection that has to be moved to release the line.

Makes quick work of it

Attachment 79472

I have an 06 4.0l, with 130000k, that makes noises where it shouldn't be making noises. So I have been reading your thread with very high interest. But, what kinda tool is this that you show here and what does it do for the fuel?????? thank you for the great information too.

wow Sorry to hear of your troubles with this shop. You may have to sue them if nothing else works.
04-07-2013 01:24 PM
Itsfun00 Nope. They got a lot of my money and I got an engine that doesn't run. Those kids have no idea.... That's no way to treat people

Ok, since this is posted on the internet and is searchable I need to correct my statement above.... so no one else has to go through the hell I have been going through.

DO NOT USE THIS SHOP FOR ANY REASON!!!!! I repeat...

DO NOT USE NTX SPEED MACHINE IN FARMERS BRANCH TEXAS FOR ANYTHING!!!!!

Yes, they are friendly and they will be happy to tell you they can do the work, then they take way longer than they say they need to do the job, and when there is a problem with their product, they will talk in circles and point you in 100 different directions and have you running around questioning everything but their build, BUT will laugh at you and get very defensive and arrogant if you question their build or even ask if they could have miscalculated something.

This is my experience and my personal recomendation so take it for what its worth, but there are so many other shops in the area I wouldn't even look at this one to do any work for you. If they can treat one person like this, they will do it to YOU!!!

Its not over, so I can't post specifics right now but I will let you all know specifics after it plays out.

darkproximity Well that all depends on what sort of SCR and DCR you're looking to achieve, which will dictate what octane fuel to run.. so a new cam may be in order as well.. but I agree its relatively straight forward, its not a racing motor and its probably going to have a high compression..
12-20-2011 12:41 PM
tailhole You can spend as much as you want on a stroker. There is lots of fancy parts out there.

But all thats needed is a 258 crank and custom pistons. the rest is just a basic rebuild.

darkproximity Yeah I've been looking at various websites.. lots to consider really..
12-18-2011 09:22 PM
Itsfun00 You can get some good ideas on the stroker forum Jeepstrokers.com
12-18-2011 09:15 PM
darkproximity I've got a bit more research and reading to do though.. luckily im not at home to be tempted to start early.. I hope to be done by march.

Id be interested to see what parts they use in yours.. im still debating what way I wanna go with mine in case I cant sell it lol
12-18-2011 09:10 PM
darkproximity Nice.. im going to blueprint it all, and take it in and have them machine it then assemble it myself.. this will be my first motor build and I've got a friend who's interested in buying it so he'll be the guinea pig and ill put it in his yj..

I was going to rebuild it myself but the local machine shop said they would do a 4.6 stroker for me for for a couple hundred more than a standard rebuild (the owner has one and loves it) and since I am doing the removal and instalation myself, its really reasonable. Less than 1/2 the price of buying the 4.6 Golden Stroker (supposedly the best) and it will be the same thing.

I thought of purchasing the Titan engine they have on Ebay listed as the High Performance 4.0 242 for $1895. I called them about it to see what it was all about. They said its the engine they build for their JeepSpeed race Jeep. The shipping was just to much for me to justify so i got lucky and found this shop.

Itsfun00 Finally, after a few weeks of working on it every now and then after work, and a few Sundays I got it out and its off to the machine shop to become a STROKER..... Hopefully its back for my jeep clubs Christmas run! It will be our first time out!

This was my first time doing anything more advanced than a brake job and I have to say, thanks to the forum members, it wasn't that bad....

Itsfun00 So, my bell housing didn't have those torques sockets like everyone's talking about I have 15 millimeter bolts ... lucky I guess
12-11-2011 03:49 PM
darkproximity Worked perfectly for me.. :-) hope it helps you.. I was recently in a similar situation as you.. fortunately I was able to get a great deal on a 99 motor with a redone head..
12-11-2011 03:45 PM
Itsfun00 Good idea.

I put one chain link on a head bolt on the drivers side towards the back and tightened a nut over it.. and took the alternator off and used the top bolt going through the bracket to go through another chain link
12-11-2011 12:02 PM
Itsfun00 This is a tricky part to remove. I had to remove it to get to one of the bell housing bolts. Thanks again to forum members for helping me through. Turns out you carefully snap the swivel part off then pinch in the clips and pull it out.
