4.0 Turbocharged Jeep Anyone done one? Wheels are turning

Hey guys not sure if a nyone has thought of doing this. I know it would be a pretty extensive project. Wondering if anyone has done one. Going to do some research maybe to see how much of a bitch it would be to do something with an intercooler and oilcooler. Probably will have to rebuild the engine for starts. And make a manifold and piping and plumbing and ems upgrade and injectors. Im bored just wanted to see what could be discussed.

Check out youtube, there are videos of guys with turbocharged wranglers with the 4.0, thats all i know about it. Oh yeah, and i heard of some people pulling turbos off those sprinter vans in junk yards for their 4.0.... You better look into that one though before you go try to pull one.

People do it with the 4.0 and in Jeeps with 4.0's. Best bet would be to search youtube.

Re: 4.0 Turbocharged Jeep Anyone done one? Wheels are turning

I would HIGHLY suggest that you upgrade your engine to a Golen 4.7L Inline Stroker and then turbo charge it. Look them up. They have great engines.

This would be better than rebuilding your engine anyway.
