Nobody makes aftermarket parts for the 1987-1990 2.5L Jeeps because of the TBI, only 1991-1995 MPFI 2.5 Jeeps.

You're pretty much out of luck there, sorry. Only option is to replace it with a stock one, cheapest would be off of a junkyard jeep.
Well I found the ones by Hedman which aren't too pricey so I think I'm gonna go with those they also have the borlas but those are close to $450

Ya I saw those on another website and that's why I wanted to see if anyone knew of any others because they are so expensive...also when I talked to the guy on the phone from the company he wasn't sure if I was aloud to use the borla in California because it might not pass emissions does any one know anything about this

Again tho... I don't know what else you'd have to upgrade.
Well from what I've heard on here I'd have to switch the trans and ecu and stuff like that

Jrgarcia715 No offense taken haha and no I am a broke college kid and my engine completely crapped out on me so I need to get it up and running again I mean I'd love to put a bigger engine in so I can have more power especially since i have a 4" lift and 33s but my financial situation right now won't allow me to do it
07-11-2013 09:07 PM
89Saharagreen Ok so just a question why are you replacing with a 2.5l

It is not a bad engine per se bit certainly not the most powerful?

Is this a daily driver mall cruiser look purty up in your 4wd?

Sorry the last sentence was third beer talk
