Im looking into potentially doing an engine swap. what i am undecided on is the engine. i have a 94' YJ with the 2.5l, stock gears and 33s and i am going to college in the mountains so i need something bigger. my question would be how much bigger of an engine do you guys think i would need? id also like to get 35s, but that can wait til much later if it has to, just a potential "thinking ahead" factor

i have been looking at 350 builds, and diesel 4bts mainly, but those are just the two that i have found alot of builds on. does anyone have any ideas? i dont have a ton of money to work with but i would want to do it right regardless. also i plan to swap in an 8.8 in the rear for strength.

if you have anything negative to say to me for asking questions i would appreciate it if you kept it to yourself. im 18, im not a mechanic by any means but i am learning as i go and i know plenty of people who have shops, and expertise that will help me make this happen. all i want is input...

go! :thumb:
