I would install a Jeep 6 cylinder but you can get kits to install a small block Chevy if that is what you want.

Mark , Thanks a Bunch how much of a process is it with the changes or is their legion of changes? Will I be able to use the original transmission that came with my Jeep?


I think that depends on the transmission. If it is an auto I doubt it can handle the torque of a V8.
