There is NO replacement for horsepower. Too powerful of an engine? no way

Would that even fit in the KK? It would be a tight fit, but anything is possible. :mrgreen:
Just remember, once you start doing this there will be a TON of people dogging what you're doing. All you have to do is just ignore them and keep working. 8)

The 6.1 will not but I know of one that will :wink:

There is NO SUCH THING as too much power.

The more torque the vehicle has, the less throttle you have to use. Better for off road use!

IF i ever get the money for a engine swap. I would most likely go with a 5.3 vortech, Powerful, light, and the aftermarket for it with swaps is gigantic! I've seen them swapped into wranglers, taco's, land cruisers, and even a geo tracker! If they can fit in a tracker, they will most definitely fit in a KJ/KK

i guess you're right...

well i guess I'll start to look into that considering that everyone has been suggesting it and you show some good points. and geeeeez, if they can fit it in a Tracker then they can def fit it in a KK for sure!
