4.7 v8
 
I know Scott has alot of work in his V8, I know the stock 05 4.7 has stupid low HP for what it is capable of. I can only afford bolt on engine mods, Exhaust, and intake (done) and i plan to get a superchips for it.

Now i wont be taking my jeep to the track on a reg basis and i wont be expecting to win, ( most other people there will prolly have a 5.7 or 6.1) So when i do go what do you guys realistically think i will be looking at? 16s?

After watching alot of the track vids, i have no idea what i would be up against because any hemi or other car with a v8 will prolly kick my ass. I dont know what will be a fair battle.

With (the future) Bwoody CAI, Superchips, and my exhaust i wonder what kind of WHP i will be getting out of this 4.7.

I say...if I had to guess...you would probably see an increase of 30-40 hp with the mods you described....So think 265-275hp....that would be my guess...

4.7's have had 235 hp since the debuted in the WJ in 99...only H.O WJ's surpassed that number with 265-270 hp stock, and now the Gen II 4.7 makes 300+ hp stock..

A guy on here went to the track in CA with a WK... I think he had the same mods you mentioned, intake, exhaust and superchips, on the 4.7, and he ran a 16.5....

I ran a 15.7 in my WJ....in hott @$$ FL weather...lol!

Thats what i figured, like i said id be going for fun mostly but it would be nice to go up against a comparable opponent and beat it fair and square.

just start with what you can

my 4.7 with intake and exhaust. less than 700. think the K&N was about 260 and the magnaflow was about 425 autoanything with a coupon.

My exhaust was $180 installed and my intake was $300, but i want to get the Bwoody intake if it gets made, and sell the AFE CAI. Then get the superchips.

I have been through probably over 100+ tunes through SCT. With Superchips you have (i think)
