|XDR||New seats sit too high and lean too far forward for my liking. Ordered a spare driver seat riser to replace passenger folding and going to cut 1" out and slight angle back then weld back together.|

that's where I was planning to mount mine but going off the bolt holes in the fender mine supposed to go lower and hang off the fender...
my pcm is down where the abs area was. this jeep didn't have abs so the truck computer bracket was modified and secured in that location

|XDR||No issues with clearance.. Maybe swap to this style?|
|06-26-2013 10:03 PM|
|George C||mine in stock location would be way to close for my likings, yours may be different and wouldn't mind seeing a pic of it|
|06-26-2013 08:00 PM|
Washer fluid bottle is in stock location with no modifications.. Need a pic? 97 may be a little different?
Just got about 300 miles on the Jeep.. I have a vacuum leak (P0507) that I can't find yet and getting about 10 MPG.. So still working out the qwerks..

a Truck K&N intake works for the swap, picked the tube up for 55 bucks shipped
curious what have you done for the washer fluid bottle?

|jeeptester||it looks in way better shape than mine, are you going to rebuild it, or just brackets?|

|XDR||Just found out some rules on emissions; engine must be made by same manufacture and offered in same vehicle class, must be same year or newer and vin must match vin on ecu. That is for 50 state legal, Oregon where I'm from has no emissions so I'm good for now|

I finally got some of my pictures together from my swap.
Here is a link: https://plus.google.com/photos/10696...73119024734401
My Jeep is tagged in Florida and there is no emissions check, if I installed the converters I think it would pass emissions anywhere.
I am finishing up the Air Conditioning hook up, hope to have it charged this week. After that it is cruise control hook up, mine is drive by wire so it should not be too hard to figure out.

|Blacksurt||Looks great, sound great.|
|05-29-2013 08:28 AM|
|XDR||Just ordered the remaining stuff to make the jeep road worthy. Should be complete in about 2 weeks including exhaust.|

|XDR||I'm military and have it registered in Oregon. Therefore I'm exempt for emissions. Texas doesn't have emissions but does have a safety inspection. Some states allow you to register without being a resident, you may want to look into those if your state has emissions the jeep wouldn't pass, also may want to look into kit car emissions standards.|

XDR, followed this thread and you did a fantastic job. Sure sounds good, idles nice and smooth! Congrats!
I didn't see any mention of it in your past posts, but how are your laws regarding engine swaps in Texas? I am trying to figure it out for NC and exactly what they allow and do not allow. I haven't contacted them to find out yet, but I sure wouldn't do my swap unless I was assured it's going to pass muster with DMV nazis. I'm just confused at this point though!
Make some more videos!
