ingenuity and home work get it done

I'm a Gear Head from the Carbureter days. Mopar engines where my choose. I have a 5.7 Grand Cherokee. Why cant I use heads form a 6.4 and the cam and possibly the map sensor ( for lack of vaccum) for a substantial boost in power. 2012 enginer have the same port shape and will bolt right on. Does anny one have complete specs on the 5.7 ? I worked many year a a dealer tech. and ended my career as an nypd tech.

Re: ingenuity and home work get it done

Im sure someone on here can help you out. I don't know any of these answer for you right now. I might have time to talk to a few people and see if they know the answer, but i think the best bet is to wait for someone who knows WK2 inside and out and we have some of the best people on this site that do. Sorry I have been of no relevant help.

Re: ingenuity and home work get it done

Think about how are you going to reprogram or replace the engine computer to take advantage.

For example this place has several options, but not for the 2011 and up computers. Perhaps give them a call.
