Hey everyone

Good to meet you all I've been building myself a nice little ride out of an 89 yj 2.5l that was a complete lemon that I bought from a "friend"
The block blew a fister out the side 4 hours into driving it last year on my birthday which was pretty depressing. That's okay though as I found the 4 banger was a little lacking compared to my beloved old 304 78 cj5. So I started saving and I accumulated everything I thought I'd need to swap a 350 into my yj. Needless to say, after about 2 months of work, I have a yj that works. And damn does she work. This was as much for me as it was for my pooch.Click image for larger version

Welcome to Wrangler Forum! And... the YJ owner's club. If it makes you feel any better I had mine die the same day I bought it as well. It was it's own interesting debacle I'll probably document when I make a build thread when I'm putting in pricier components.
