It is only a mistake if you do not put it in your jeep. hmmmm 6 litre? and nv4500.

You got a smokin deal on those items Klapper. You don't have to use it anytime soon , but it'll come in handy one day. My garage is full of crap that I've purchased in the hopes of one day using for something .

Yeah Six Liters of Doom. It's the 315HP version with 370ft/lbs of torque...with emissions and manifolds. I'm going to run w/o emissions and shorty headers so I have to build prepared for 400ish HP. I will probably look into running some sort of programmable tuner to keep the power down for now.

The price was so good I couldn't pass it up; I basically paid what the transmission (brand new) with shipping would be worth. Plus I couldn't think of any reason why not to. Besides you know, kissing my tcase, HP 'turdy and driveshafts goodbye. Now I'm hoping for a mild winter so it won't be -26 in my garage again!

Lots of work to do.
-Radiator, hoses, steam system, electric fans, shroud, wiring
-Engine + tcase mounts
-Atlas/StaK/D300, do I want passenger or driver side drop (ie, what axle am I going with), also changes exhaust routing
-Front axle, steering, track bar
-Air intake system (air box, tubing, possibly run LS1 intake manifold which gains hood clearance and hp but loses low end torque)
-Frame/cage?
-PCM marriage (run Jeep computer in tandem to allow gauge cluster to work, add in tachometer converter)
-Add fuel regulator, larger tank

At this point I'll be looking at tube fenders and some gnarly sized tires with hydro steer.

I think I'm going to stay with a driver side drop, truss the HP D30, stay on 33s for the winter and pray the 231 doesn't blow up.

 I am going to guess that you are working for Kidco because that is not the Finning Calgary Shop. 
Why does your Jeep say Toyota on it?
The obstacle is the path.

I will do show and tell as well. here is my crew pulling the 3516 out of a 793D, at the COE Red Deer, that engine is about 3 stories up. we needed to clear the cab to get it on the floor.

Good guess, you got it.

Divorced the engine and transmission and put the enine up on a stand. Any idea how much of a PITA it is to try to find M10x1.5x120 bolts to fit through the stand? Especially in grade 8+? Solution: use grinder to trim down tubes on stand, use M10x1.5x80 grade 12 bolts  ;D

After the engine was on the stand I pulled off the coil packs and exhaust manifolds/EGR.


Next step was to pour on the degreaser and wear out a couple SOS pads.


Looking much better, but still have some work to do.

Whats a set of them "axel stands" worth?  ;D

After building natural gas compressors for a few years, I still love piping to those motors. And then watching the start-up. Damn, those things roar!  8) Me loves its!
