Unhappy Bad News

So my sister was driving my WJ and while she was driving it I guess the water pump was broken, the engine overheated and the head gasket blew and I think my engine is now shot Anyone know what the cost of average 4.0 I-6 engine would run?

Re: Bad News

I honestly would take advantage and make it a stroker. Stroke it to a 4.5L or a 4.7L.

Buy the stroker kit, go for a 4.7L, spend a good $500 or more to get a good port and polish on the head. Send the exhaust manifold to Extrude Hone for some major flow. Throw a nice exhaust on it and I bet you will be surprised!

Re: Bad News

Im with the others. Go all out while it's apart. I did with my wife's car when the head gasket blew. I replaced it myself and polished and ported every piece I could. I was very surprised by the results

Do you have any idea how bad the damage is? Ie will the head need skimmed?

Re: Bad News

It's not killed it, so make it stronger.

Stroker time - 4.7.

Re: Bad News

I see all kinds of people saying stroke it to 4.7 when in fact I know little to nothing about engine stroking lol

Re: Bad News

Stroking it means changing the internals like the crank, pistons, rods, lifters and supporting mods.

There are kits to making your I6 stronger. As you know we are NOT talking about the 4.7L V8. We are talking about a 4.7L I6. Or you can go with a 4.5L or a 4.6L I6 if you are willing to do this.

For Example:
