5.7L Hemi Swap
Aloha y'all!! I just have a quick question about dropping in a Hemi into an XJ. I was wondering if it's possible to do a "Drop-in" or swap in a 5.7L Hemi motor/engine into an XJ? Due to financial reasons, I unfortunately have to get rid of & sell my WK & find something "Cheaper." Thus, the reason why I'm considering an XJ. I currently have a Hemi inside the engine bay of my Limited WK & wanted to know if it's possible to do the swap?! Any advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Please, no sarcasm here......Just want straight up honesty here, Mahalo y'all!!

Re: 5.7L Hemi Swap
honestly? it would be cheaper and easier to install a gm LS engine. like a truck 5.3 or 6.0. my buddy has one. cheap and simple. hemi stuff is expensive and a lot of the parts would need fabricated.

Google XJ ls1 swap you get How to guides and even some Kits.

More support anyway for the Ls1's
