2008 Wrangler JK 6.1L HEMI Swap Part 4

Were back with part 4 of our 2008 Wrangler JK HEMI swap blog. As always the crew here at Power and Performance has been working extra hard to get this Jeep rolling down the road. The experience thus far as been an all around positive and enjoyable one. Everyone involved in this build is truly excited to see the finished product. In our last blog we showed the finalization of the engine mount fabrication and our custom built exhaust manifolds. We have since finished are cooling system and custom built a beautiful 3″ stainless mandrel bent exhaust. We will get to the exhaust and the cooling in a bit, but before we do I want to get even a little further behind the scenes to show the heart of this beast on “the operating table”, so to speak.

As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, our 6.1L donor engine was removed from a Chrysler 300C SRT-8. With a build of this magnitude and importance, we wanted to make sure this 6.1L engine was in the best possible shape it could be in. The engine was sent into our professional engine shop for a complete tear down and refresh. We wanted to to verify that all the internals were in good working order, and pretty up the parts we could with some fresh paint. Here are some photos of the engine disassembled in our shop.

The engine was spec’d out, everything looked great and she was reassembled with fresh gaskets.

 

Now lets jump back to the present and take a look at this custom exhaust that we made up for the Jeep. As you can see this is full 3″ stainless all the way back to a single mac muffler. This exhaust gives the Jeep a very nice deep rumble to let you know that something other than the 3.6L is lurking under the hood.

The cooling has also been completed with a custom overflow bottle fit right up next to the radiator keep the system nice and tight.

 

Everything presented in this blog post has both form and function and is a work of art it its own right. Every single person involved in this build has had a blast working on this jeep!

In the next installment of our Wrangler swap blog we will be putting the finishing touches on the Jeep and approaching the initial test drive. Please stayed tuned to see the finish product.
