What is faster?
 
Hey I'm just wondering what would be faster between a Jeep GC Laredo 4.7 or the heavier limited and even heavier Overland models with the 4.7 HO motor? Thanks guys

the 4.7HO is probably the fastest, im not sure how much extra weight there is in the limiteds or overlands or how that affects speed. Check out the engine ratings on wjjeeps.com for speed test info. etc. There are all sorts of mods and tunes you can do too to increase performance.

I'm going to say Limiteds with the HO...but I'm biased. :lol:

Those rock rails on the Overlands can REALLY slow you down...heheheh.

Seriously though, the difference would be negligible between a Limited and an Overland. Don't forget about the Columbia's and the other editions that were available with the HO.

It depends of what kind of race are you talking about, but I will bet my money on the regular 4.7… I haven’t met an HO that can bet my 4.7 yet

I'm sure he's talking stock vs stock. And the HO is upgraded quite a bit over the standard 4.7L So I find it hard to believe that the 4.7L HO would lose to a standard 4.7L

Scott has a modified 4.7L and I think he converted to the HO. I'm sure he'll chime in with his experience.

either HO will smack the lower grade engine senseless.

Mine is not stock anymore, I have a few mods. But even when it was I never got beat by and HO. Maybe I’m just a better driver who knows.

Or maybe you were racing someone that doesn't maintain their vehicle...

you have to race to see the HO only get about 30 HP extra but you have to run higher gas. also if the HO is worn out and has not had a tune up it can be slower. if you were buying new the HO would be faster in a race. but they stooped sell WJ back in 04

Do you properly maintain your WJ? I bet my 99 4.7 can beat your 04 HO

An HO is faster. Let the swordfight continue.... :jump:

I certainly do...and I bet you're wrong unless you've got something special going on under the hood. :slapfight:
