Looking for cheap power
 
I am wanting some ideas on cheap power upgrades for my 94 2.5L. I eventually want to do a motor swap but money is a factor right now. I have seen some threads concerning TB and also swapping injectors. Any info on these or any other inexpensive upgrades would be great

Thanks!

BTW, I am looking for ideas with very little if any mods necessary!

On top of the 4.0 throttle body swap and the 19# injectors, there is the electric fan conversion, header/exhaust system, a full tune up. You could regear also, but I think that's about it.

Aren't the factory injectors already 19#? Do I need to get a throttle body off any particular year? I also understand that doing that I have to use my IAC housing with the 4.0 TB.

Any particular year for the Taurus fan swap?

If all this is done, will I need to do anything to the computer?

Sorry for all the questions but I just need to know what direction to head.

4.0 TB, use the 2.5 IAC, nothing else needed, computer will adjust.

The Ford injectors, not only are they more pressure, but they have a 4 way spray pattern whereas the Jeep is singular. May need to upgrade the fuel pressure regulator, but you can get one for a junkyard Mopar.

Cheap. Powerful. Reliable.

Pick two.

Tune up and make sure everything is running right. Everything else is like squeezing blood from a stone. Save for your motor swap.

Definitely tune everything. Plugs wire cap rotor PVC check timing. Clean tb. Upgrade air filter. Love mine but I'm a slow lane guy. Great off road power and once you get to 60 on the hwy that is fast enough in a jeep.

The efan is the only mod worth actually paying for. As far as the injectors and tb if you can gather them for peanuts go for it. I wouldn't pay more than 50 for the two though.
