2008 Wrangler JK 6.1L HEMI Swap
Cleveland Power and performance is proud to announce our latest build! We will be completing a 2008 Wrangler JK 6.1l HEMI swap.
Due to the overwhelming requests from our customers, we will be swapping this 6.1L Hemi SRT-8 V8 engine into a theft recovery Wrangler Rubicon. Since the theft recovery had no damage, it has already been inspected by the state and carries a Rebuilt Ohio Title. We are now going to go forward with installing the SRT-8 Hemi Engine. Follow this blog to see the swap from start to finish.
Below you will see pictures of the wrangler, as we received it, next to the 6.1L HEMI donor engine.
We will be doing as much of this build “in house” as possible. We will be fabricating bracketry, mounts, and whatever else we have to so that by the time we finish this swap we are prepared to do another one.
We started the build by taking the body of the Wrangler off of the frame to see what were working with. Here are some pictures showing the body off of the frame.
We can now remove the original driveline, and begin fabricating our mounts. We will be using the original transmission and transfer case out of the wrangler behind the HEMI. Stayed tuned to this blog to see the build progress. As always please feel free to call or email with any comments or questions.
2006 Chevy Corvette C6 Automatic Donor
Watch this blog entry to follow a start to finish build on this 2006 Chevy Corvette C6 automatic donor car. When we are finished with this Vette, it will be a fully functional, run and drive go kart which will be the perfect chassis for all sorts of custom builds.
This particular car features an LS2 engine with automatic transmission, black leather interior, complete brake system, fuel system, suspensions and much more. When we build one of our donor cars or “go-karts” we strip away all of the clutter, leaving only the essentials for your build.
Here are some pictures showing what the car looked liked when we received it here in our facility.
We started this build, like we do with nearly all of our Vette donors, by racking it on a lift to see what, if any suspension components need replaced. We spin wheels, check control arms, etc to verify that every part that will be going back on the vehicle is true and straight. If any part needs replaced, we obtain it from our back stock inventory of Corvette parts.
Once we have an inventory on what needs replaced or repaired, we start by removing the body panels. Here are some photos of the Corvette after the first stages of tear-down.
At this point, we inspect the engine and driveline to verify that everything is in good working order. We will also begin to inspect the interior components, power functions.
Please stay tuned to this blog to see the second part of this build, and the conclusion in which wee will offer the completed donor Vette for sale.
If you have any questions on this vehicle, or any of the vehicles we have, please give us a call at 866-236-5031 to discuss.
