I'm guessing this won't be driven on the street.

Work so far looks great.
What rear end? 8 3/4, D60?

Looks nice, cant wait to see it run. Did you change the internals at all?
Now I can be like all those other awesome people with more than one Jeep in their sig, but now I have to say one of them is sold:(
97 XJ 4.6
90 MJ 4.0 - sold

I want to have as many Jeeps as children. DD, offroader, drag MJ and another one. 4=4

Car is for drag racing only.
Has a 9" Ladder bar coil over setup

Here's the bottom of the car now.

The headers were made from a stock set

No internal changes yet, but will probably make a cam change after I get a baseline on the dyno.

What kind of boost are you going to be pushing? I've heard 6-8 is all you want to run on stock internals...

THAT IS AWESOME :o How do you think MegaSquirt would work on an XJ, normally aspirated stroker?

What trans are you putting behind the 4.0? I'm interested in what's good for racing and mountable on small-bodied AMC cars.

I am really surprised this thread hasn't seen more attention. You build and execution of the turbo set-up is super clean, and warrants more attention than it's getting. FOR SURE!!

Do you have any more detailed info on what you are using? Injectors, Turbo, wiring, etc. I see you are using MS to control the engine, does it interface well with the Chrysler TPS, CTS, etc?
