Ok .. its tax time and if you have been following me at all you probably know ive been without my Jeep for at least 6 months now. I threw a rod last year and tried to get it running on the cheap but it just didnt work out.. so now im here to build my engine the way i think i should.
Please keep in mind that although im very good with Computers and learn very quickly, im still an noob. Ive never really built an engine before (except for that failed rebuild).. so i need as much guidance as you can provide. Thanks for all that you guys do to help noobs like me.
Another note; if you happen to know of a part that costs less, have it or know someone who has it and wants to sell it... please let me know! I would love to take it off thier hands so we could both benefit!
So here was my first thread when i thought i was going to start a stroker build:
http://www.jeepstrokers.com/forum/viewt ... f=15&t=790
Since then the crank has been stored with the old bearings taped on it with assembly lube between the crank and bearings.
Ok so a little bit about me and what i want to do....
I live in Bend Oregon which is approx. 3,600ft above sea level. I live and work here... although on occasion i like to travel to the valley, or down to California to visit family. Thats about the extent of the Jeeps journies for now. Eventually i would sure like to take it out to Moab and places like that but with the way my life has been lately i just dont see that happening anytime in the near future.
I run my Jeep hard as a DD. I have a heavy foot and i enjoy driving fast. I plan on for now using this Jeep as my DD. I like to screw off with my friends at the Stop Light, and give myself whiplash.. lol. I currently dont wheel much... but someday if time and money allows i will. So this build should be mainly Street use. On to it then
This is a 4.7L Build with a SCR of 9.68 and a DCR of 8.47. (Hoping to get away with this since im at 3500ft)
I plan on running Premium fuel. If i take trips to lower altitude i dont mind throwing in some octane booster.
Quench is .044
Here is my parts breakdown. I give the part, part number, cost and where to purchase it. I know i find it usefull that way and im sure other noobs like me can use it to thier advantage as well. Please remember that some of the parts are specific to my build because of what year computer i am using. For example the Flex Plate, since i have a 90 Cherokee. Most other parts are chosen for a 94 Cherokee since thats the Year Range (91-95) Head and block im using.

Which doesnt include things i have missed so far. I also plan on getting a few parts powder coated, and my headers coated in ceramic.... So its possible i could reach about $5,000. I was thinking of going with Roller Rockers... but they are $$$$ and from what im reading lately we dont really need them in our Jeeps... and its better to keep the stock style.
Any input is extremely appreciated!!
