As Scott mentioned, I also kind of like the thought of having a ride that's a sleeper (beast in sheep clothing). Not looking to add a supercharger or turbo or anything like that. Just straight 6.1 SRT engine. What would it take to support that? Oh, and I have an Overland model in the event any parts are different from standard Wk.
there is currently a 6.1 engine out of a jeep srt on ebay with the transmission and transfer case.

Re: Step in...lets discuss the 426 and 440 Hemi's!!!

So here's my thoughts here:
The new 6.4L SRT8 (when it's officially announced) will have over 525 HP. A 426 (7.0L) aftermarket motor is rated around 585HP (ie, Arrington). Consider the price of the 426 + install for the extra 50HP and you'll see it's pointless.

Now if you're talking about building a WK2 Limited into a sleeper for instance . . .
The 5.7L motor will be the same motor running in today's Challenger with VVT heads so tuning and accessories should be there (to a degree).

If you go with a stroker motor, you will need to upgrade the tranny at the least. Transfer case eventually.

Agreed! If you want to go that big get the real deal.

I wouldn't go any bigger than a 392 on our current small blocks as your going to start to run into geometry problems on the crank/rod - axis/angle and thermal stress due to thin sidewalls.

I would recommend you stay away from the 440 unless its going to be N/A only.

yeah...you'd have to assume the deck height on the 440 is pretty small

Question??? If the WK2 comes with a 6.4L 392 and there are currently 392, 393, 426, 427, 431, 440, and 445's available now, why would there be all new development for heads or cams?

Re: Step in...lets discuss the 426 and 440 Hemi's!!!

I think there is 3 different levels of modding these Jeeps...I'll give you my opinion because I've done or am in the process of doing all of these mods........

Level 1- CAI, Headers, Exhaust, Thermostat, Tune
(Low maintenance and very reliable)

Level 2- Heads, Cam, Forced Induction, Nitrous
(Still kinda low maintenance but need to watch several things)

Level 3- Stroker, Tranny, Transfer Case, Rear Diff., Fuel System
(High Maintenance, Not very friendly as a daily driver sometimes,Lots of $$$ involved, Lots of down time and patience. Also dealing with finding the weak links in your build and constantly fixing things that break)

It's tuff to decide where you want to fall with your build but the deeper you go into the Jeep ..The deeper you'll be reaching for $$$,and it gets frustrating sometimes.

BUT...It will "payoff" in the end.....

^^^^^^ I'm still on level 1, hoping to have enough cash to move onto level 2 later this year

I cant wait for BJB and some of the others to chime in. I'm just now starting my research
You rang???????

All I can say is my 426 that BES built is stout!! It has taken a beating and is still ticking. I'll post up some pic's in the next few weeks.
