Re: i know you guys have been wonderin' about my engine build......

No offense to Scott- I'm gonna be "that guy" and reserve judgement until it's dyno-tuned....because 5.6 secs is nothing to write home about, considering the money likely spent. That superchips timer is likely a little fast too.

I'm betting it is a stroked 4.7L-based motor, HO regrinds (likely in the 218/224 range), Scat rods, and Ross pistons from Air Ram. No nitrous, no power adder.

Are you running a wideband scott? How much does your Jeep weigh?

I'm keeping an open mind until it's dialed in. I hope a real tune makes it a whole 'nother animal.

5.6, compared to what? A cobra? Z28 camaro? Any srt vehicle? Considering, he is about a second faster 0-60 than a hemi that starts off with 100 more horsepower, i would say 5.6 is pretty good.

Compared to other "Fast" Jeeps.

Maybe it's just the way I was raised, but I always evaluate things from a "bang-per-buck" perspective. Me personally, if I'm gonna build a motor....and you can talk to Shawn aka BUBBADOG about the motors that I choose parts for....it's gonna move, or else I feel like I've wasted my money.

If you ain't fast, you're last...................................I hope Scott's truck rips after a real tune.

Re: i know you guys have been wonderin' about my engine build......

Re: i know you guys have been wonderin' about my engine build......

I think what Scott has achieved is excellent. Definative power/times etc are still to come I know but even if the times posted are even closely representative to what the Jeep can do, then it's a great improvement over stock!

We ALL (even the self proclaimed mega-eggspurts amongst us) must remember that you can in no way compare the performance times of a 4.7 engine in the WK to the same engine in a WJ, there's a massive weight difference!
