Hello everyone ,I am new to this forum , I would like to ask a question to any Jeep guru's that may be in here ...
I just purchased a 2002 grand cherokee 4.7litre that has a not so nice engine noise going on , may be cam followers , but may be a rod bearing too.
Anyway my question is .. has anyone tried to swap a 4.0litre H.O. engine in, in place of the 4.7 litre , I know I will need the computer , ..will the engine bolt up to the 4.7's tranny ?
I can make mounts if needed and probably re do the wiring harness etc.
I have several good 4.0litres ( cherokee sports and grands ) and they just don't quit and the 4.7's are nasty on gas anyway ,( I also have a dakota with a 4.7 and I love it , but nasty gas mileage )
I am a licenced mechanical technician and have had about 20 jeeps , love them too but haven't tried this swap yet .
any help would be appreciated . Thanks
