chevy... i know im not a fan of chevys, but what ever... i had a ford 428 but everyone i talked to advised against it and it needed at least $2200 to get it fixed. i need to get a a gas tank made too, stock jeep tank aint enough for a 383. I CANT WAIT!!!

the 383 chev stroker is an awesome torky eng had one in my cj with the edelbrock tuned port inj on it 375 hp 430 ft pds of tire smokin fun but it now needs a set of pistons so the 350 iroc motor is in it till I rebuild.

If you want to do a ready made coil over kit find the black diamond one I am not sure who produces it now but it works well it is what is in Jeepnuts truck

YJ's have a tank that big? Damn, my XJ only has a 70L tank.:( I wouldn't mind being able to carry a bit more fuel.
