LT1 in a TJ?

The short of it is this:

Boyfriend inherited a buick roadmaster with an LT1 and 40k original miles. I want a TJ.

His idea is to buy a 4 cyl TJ and swap the LT1 into it.

Is this a realistic project? Any major hick-ups to know about?

Yes, it's a very realistic project if you have the time, skill and money to do it. There are a lot of guys out there that run this setup. Do a search and you can read for days on here.

Only major downside to the LTI is the Opti-spark. I think they have kits to eliminate it these days though...

Hell to the NO! It's a sedan and I wouldn't rock it if you paid me. I'd rather rock my PSD F-250 or my Pontiac Grand Am or my Grand Cherokee... See the problem we have too many cars already, but I'd make room in the driveway for a TJ!
