a better question 22re or I6 4.0LWhich engine is better a 22re or 2.5 amc?
If you're tossing it in a jeep, I just say the 2.5 amc. You'll find more transmissions that will bolt right in, or use your existing.Which engine is better a 22re or 2.5 amc?
I really think that's a pretty rough statement. A well maintained AMC 2.5 will go the distance.Chrysler 2.5's are junk....I have bought 10 jeeps in the last year with blown up 2.5's in um. If you look at the price of engines for jeeps, the 2.5 costs twice as much to replace as a 4.0.
Many people say that the 2.5l is just the 4.0l with two lopped off cylinders.I guess the consensus is that the 2.5 is junk.. I disagree but if so then the 4.0L is also junk:
"Willem Weertman, in his definitive book, wrote that the 4.0 shared many features of the 2.5 liter overhead valve engine, including the crankshaft journal and crankpin diameters, basic architecture, bore, cylinder spacing, and valvetrain parts."
