Research these engines, they actually run better with the emissions intact.
Lots of data on the internets on LS engine tuning,
 EFI Live is a good tuner I just happen to know someone that has one  ::)

the 231 should hold up,for awhile, but the axles...?
Good luck keep us posted.

Well took care of the t-case issue. Dana 300 with 32 spline outputs and a 23 spline input to match my NV4500! Brink is running one of these behind his 500ci so I don't think I've got to worry about blowing it up any time soon.

Well I lunched a u-joint in the front driveshaft somewhere. I think it may be in the double cardan and as I'm planning on replacing the shafts and axles in the (near?) future I have no desire to spend any money on getting this rebuilt.

Solution? Pull the shaft off the 4.0L parts jeep. Looks to be about 2" longer so I adjusted the controls arms and stretched the front axle about 1-1.5". Seems to be ok for now and the squeak is gone, I'll have to disconnect the sway bar and flex the jeep a bit to make sure the driveshaft isn't bottoming out. For now I'm only going to be on pavement for a bit so I'll leave it.

Looks like fun. Heads up on the 4500, it needs a lot of height. So you have to choose between a ton of body lift, a very low hanging belly, floor cutting, or a combo of all the above.

I went with a flat belly, cut the floor pan out, and used 2.5" of body lift to get this setup.

Nice. Can't wait to see it stuffed in that TJ.

I just picked up a 330hp 6.0L my self for the Jeepster.  And a large shoe horn of course.

Thanks for the tip, the body lift might be the best option as I'll need some room for larger tires without going any (or much) higher  on the suspension. Luckily I have this white TJ stripped down to the frame/tub to play around with clearances. I might be able to come up with a t-case mount that gets me a little lower.

What are you running for a tcase and what did you do for a mount? I'd be interested in coming to see how you shoehorned your 4500 in if you have time, just name your drink!

I dont drink, but the coffee's always on at my place. Pick a warm day and come on out. I run a Klune Atlas combo clocked flat, which also pokes through my floor because of how high I stuff the 4500. The 300 should afford you a bit more room then what I have.

Dont forget the 5th gear retaining nut mod for the 4500. I didnt do it on mine when I rebuilt it and its been a 4 speed ever since...lol

You don't REALLY need to do over 80km/h do you?  ;D

I have to go to Deadmonton tomorrow but I'll try giving you a call this weekend, thanks a lot.

Sure man, sounds good.

With 538's and 38's you can still do 65mph at around 3200 rpm. Not that bad..lol

Everythings tucked up nicely


Gonna need to bend the shifter something fierce but it should work

I think everything will fill fit together fine. A little clearance here and there. So far 1" body lift, TMR  transmission cross member tucked a little under frame, and TMR 1" drop skid plate. We will sort out the driveshafts but all angles will be low. North West Fab twin stick cable Shifters and everything will fit good. Lets hope that 8.8 and 30 last the summer ;D
