Jeep yj Straight 6 to V8 swap

Hey everyone ...anyone do a V8 swap into a yj. I've been thinking about doing this project next year. Wanted to know if anyone had any success with this. I was wondering if it is easier to find an AMC V8 or better to throw a Chevy V8 in. Any input would be helpful. Thanks!

I put a 5.2 and ax-15 in mine last winter using mostly the info i got here and am very pleased with it. If you have good mechanical skills and some wiring experience its really not that hard

Read, there is a lot of material here and also on Novak's website about enigne conversions.

I love my SBC conversion but in part it depends on what you want it to be when your done and what your skills/tools are.
