I love the I6 especially the torque ,you will be amazed at how much power you can get out of them it might not be a 5.7 hemi but it will move! post all your 4.0l mods and beats.........

my 4.0l wrangler was the fastest in town, even with 35x14.50 tires.

i had CAI, PAce setter header, exhaust with not cats. Venom 400 chip (beast of a chip) and 4.56 gears in my axles. the 5spd helped alot to. but like i said i was fast in it. i could even out run alot of ricers i knew.

i have a 4.0 in my XJ. I am the original owner. I can agree on the torque and the actual power of that little beast.
My only mods are a K&N FIPK, Borla CatBack and FirePower Ignition. That little thing pulls all day long. Out here we have 70 and 75 speed limits, that means cruising 80 no problem. That little 4.0 can do 80 all day long and can do more if needed for spurts to pass someone.

if you want to engage me further inthis thread you got to change your text to something readable, please!

00wj.....first of all a throttle body spacer is junk unless u have a bored throttle body and have the spacer bored also ,all a throttle body spacer wil do is whistle on a stock throttle body, now with the thermastat.....not bad , a stroker kit will cost between $1400-1800 bucks i with my father in law owning his own shop i can get it for a grand flat out!! i would say the headers and bigger throttle body to answer ur question

Why a 5.9? The 5.2 and 5.9 engines are not exactly the most reliable on the road and as compared to the 4.7 and the 5.7 they not that powerful/full of torque to start off with.

IMHO stroke the I6, or do a 4.7 swap. There is a reason the 5.2 and 5.9 were replaced.

good point, duly noted however i guess i wanted the my engine is bigger than urs thing goin....however my inline as of now is stronger than the 4.7 so i might as well just stroke it and later toss in a supercharger........
