As the title says, wondering if anyone has thought about swapping a 4.0 into their engine or if they know if it will fit but hasn't been done, I've got an opportunity to buy an engine super cheap and I want to do it, but was asking here first if anyone has any input on this idea. Would be neat.

That's a really tall engine. But it does have the oil sump in the back, so it could fit. It's a heavy engine though.

 

As it doesn't get swapped into many other non-Jeeps, I couldn't find any dimensions online.

 

Wanna be the first to do it? Would be torquey as hell if it worked.

Honestly, I don't really see the point of putting a truck engine in a sports car. For the cost/effort of swapping, and (lack of) benefit of the swap, I'd just stick with the L.

A car is a hole in the air, suspended there by four rubber doughnuts which you can not eat.
Into this hole, you throw money, which you will never see again.

Well I have access to an engine, like super cheap. And I got access to a supercharger for free, I feel I can do this swap for pretty cheap, I will eventually go with a Ford 8.8 rear end as well.

I'll take measurements of it. And I'm getting the hood cowling that puts a hole in the center of the hood and allows it to vent like that so I feel ill have hood clearance. I wanna stick with a inline 6 that's got torque and it will make plenty of power for the car and while it won't Rev super high like the l6 it will still be nice I think.

Oh. I have the 180sx suspension and its still really stiff so I think I've got the weight issue covered.
