Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Hey guys, I gotta 5.7. Can anyone tell me what parts from the 6.1 will interchange with the 5.7? Just bought my 06 WK a week ago and I'm a ford head and so/ so Chevy. I know that some parts form the Chevy LS blocks can interchange parts ie a 6.0 intake on a 5.3 block etc. But I'm just breaking into the world of new school Hemi, so I'm having to start from square one with Mopar.

I believe the 6.1 heads will swap in...but unless you find them real cheap...I would go with a 5.7 race ported head. The 6.1 exhaust manifolds will also swap in...but they are larger than the 5.7 and there may be a few modifications needed to swap them in.

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Black Betty,

What all do you want to swap over?

The heads have a different chamber (Bore size) and will need to be matched/machined, the intake (larger) port and exhaust (larger and shaped differently, D not rounded square type) ports are different also and will need work if you want them to fit and work properly.

Get some 5.7 race heads like Scott said. Leave the intake Mani alone it is sweet as is. Get a set of AR Headers and a CAI and you will be on your way to mod fever...lol. The 6.1 cam (you will need the 6.1 push rods also) and crank will fit and MDS will work if you want to keep it. I only use mine on the highway.

The brake duct coolers fit on mine (05) just fine (holes were already there) no modifications needed, might be different on later years though.

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Found a site on the net that seems to indicate I can purchase just the mesh for an SRT8 grille. How cool is that? http://www.jeepoemparts.com/oem-jeep-parts.html Think I will be buying it when I get back from AZ.

Just curious. I'm not doing any diggin into the motor at the moment, just didn't know if there was anything that could be swapped and if so if it would be worth it. I'm still torn at this point where I want to take my vehicle. I mean it is a jeep and it's sweet to take a WK and make a Wrangler owner take notice when you take your uber equipped vehicle off the beaten path. Then again I love the shit outta the SRT8 and think it's a sexy beast. If I can find a happy median of decent offoad warrior when I want and clean street sexiness, I think I'd be content. I'd say I lean more towards SRT8 and performance, but it is a Jeep and would be cool to show people that WKs aren't made for grocery getting.

I thought it was the upper one Scott... the schmatics point to the upper... at least that is what my retinas told my brain..... But, upon closer scruitiny, it appears I was foolish to question a moderator... https://www.jeepoemparts.com/jeep-gr...kee-parts.html If you go to front bumper and click on it or the grille, should show you a schematic. thought since the mesh appeared to be above the fogs, it was the upper. Didn't account for the exploded view. Should have remembered that from my drafting days.

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

its ok bro....I did the same thing once. But you have to go to Grille and then select the color you want. which you would select the cheapest and then have it painted to match or switch your painted section out.

Re: SRT8 Jeep conversion parts

Hi guys, I am new to this forum and just traded my Black WH 08 CRD Overland for an White 05 WK and someting extra and considering to mood to an SRT clone,

Thanks
