Would this be a worthwhile swap? I know most wil say a hemi would be better, but i don't have a free Hemi layin around if you know what i mean. If worth it, would the stock auto 4-speed be sufficent and such. Is there any word from AA or Novak on JK conversions coming out?

Assuming smog legality (if it's even an issue), why would you want to swap out a modern engine for an old carbed piece of crap? At least swap something in that has fuel injection. Do you just want a V8 at any cost?

That seems like a huge step backwards to me. What is your current horsepower compared to a stock 304? You might look at selling the JK's driveline and use that money to buy the driveline you want. I would think your open to other engine/trans combo's if you contemplated the 304.

I've got a lot of old junk lying around. Doesn't mean I want to put it in my Jeep.:shaking:

You realize that if you put a 304 engine into a 2wd 4door vehicle it will self destruct.:p

I'm not aware of anyone that has run a AMC 304 with a 42RLE transmission. I'm assuming it's still the 42RLE like on +03 TJ's???

That transmission needs stuff from a computer to work properly, the 304 was gone when Bill Gates was still in a garage. EFI, computer, sensors,would all be be a crazy scenario unless you have the equipment and knowledge to "dial" the components in. Adapter wise you can have things built to make anything fit from novack and others.


FYI: A AMC engine will not put hair on your plastic grill.:flipoff2:
