Alright,

I've never been a muscle car kind of driver.
In fact, the biggest engine I ever owned was a 3.7 V6 in my Jeep Liberty... followed by the 2.5 in my TJ.

In short I plan to shoehorn the BB 460 into my trail/street Jeep wrangler.

At the moment I am in the midst of pulling the engine from the donor truck (along with the axles... Dana 60HP and 10.25 with 4.11's).
I had initially acquired the 92 F-350 for the 1 ton axles, and I was able to drive the truck for a bit and decided I needed to get that kind of power into my jeep.

All in all I think the swap will be unique and straightforward, but I am at a crossroads as to running the C6/borg 1356 or figuring out what I need to do to mate the NP435/205 to my big block. (I have the 400 bellhouse which will bolt up, but I am trying to find out what I need to do/obtain to properly balance the engine (externally balanced), and make everything work) That's my main reason for coming over here, but if any and all would like me to document my build here I would be glad to Smile
