I now pretty much have a "new" engine in a 12 year old car. I got it from them with only 500 miles that they put into it while test driving. I love it, i dont think am getting rid of this jeep anytime soon. Its my "project".

Re: Blown Engine/ Head gasket

I got some pretty bad lifter tick. Hope I'm not running into the same problem. Ill probably end up doing the same thing also taking the time to polish and port the intake manifold, maybe do the throttle body upgrade, and would be perfect timing for the ECU map upgrade. Are you guys using a OEM Jeep headgasket or something that is working well with the head. Any other suggestion do to at this time. Also probably get the fuel injectors balanced and blueprinted/cleaned. Since it will be in pieces.
