    LS1 Swap... Maybe?

    Has anyone ever tried to swap a ls1 engine into a 86 Jeep Cherokee 4x4? (has a 2.8L v6) Is there anyway to convert it so you could use the existing transmission, or would you have to do more than a conversion? Let me know if It can be done. Thanks

    Antything is possible, but I don't think that tranny would hold up. There might be a conversion kit out there but I doubt it. Hell fab one up and then start selling them.

    Is the jeep 5 speed or automatic? If it has the T-5 5 speed then it should handle a stock ls1 and may even bolt up if I remember correctly, since the 84-86 jeeps had the chevy v6. If it doesn't bolt up, then advanceadapters.com should sell the adapter you need.

    It has the 2.8L v6, the transmission is a auto 3 speed, it's 4x4 and if I was to get a t56 would the 4wheel drive still be functioning? And any places where a good cheap t56 can be found? Let me know more. If I can't use the 4wheel drive then I'm just probably going to get a 98 s10 extreme and drop it in there..
