Any thoughts? My other idea is a modified LS3 pushing around 650hp.

    I am a huge fan of turbochargers. That said I don't think it's practical for the Jeep. I lived at 6000ft valley floor and I have lived at sea level. Yes the altitude sucks some horsepower but an LS with 6 speed will be plenty. I mean if you want to go drag racing buy a car and turbo it up. Why you would want to add more tuning issues, more working parts to deal with and more maintenance issues to a vehicle you intend to drive out in the wilderness where you could potentially freeze and die if it left you stranded is beyond me. Lol!

    Turbo and Jeep, two words that don't belong anywhere near each other, IMHO

    I would flog what you have while saving for the V-8 of your dreams.

    You have the right Jeep for it👍

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
