    Engine swap, ATK or Golen engine?

    I poster in here a while back, and am looking in to a stroker engine (most likely). Just a little extra HP and TQ to my jeep. Just wondering if anyone has done a ATK or Golen 4.6L swap before?

    ATK has a 2 year warranty, and comes as a long block. Core return. So id have to strip my 4.0L down, swap some parts, and send my blown block back. $3500

    Golen has a 3 year warranty, no core return, but also comes as a long block. Or, additionally, i can have it dressed up, and dyno done by them. There base engine is around $4500 and the dressed up and dyno version is closer to $6500.

    By dressed up, i mean i can drop the engine in, with oil pan, head cover, timing cover, some pulleys on the front, and the engine is already broken in.

    So one is almost twice as much, but half the headache it seems like.



    Otherwise.... i may go a completely different route and look at a 1.9L TDI. Just because it would be a fun swap! Lol. But i dont have enough research in to that.

    You might want to check with ATK and see if they will take your blown motor as a core exchange. Pretty sure I read they wanted the core to turn over.

    Lmao, yes you are correct Coty built, and gas to diesel conversion offer parts to make the swap happen. It seems pretty bad ass. It would just be a lot of money for a full kit, or a lot of work making it happen from scratch. Lol.

    That’s why they invented plastic money... we go for smiles per gallon. We don’t drive Prius’s

    Lol... thats a lot of plastic money. I emailed Coty built about the TDI swap. They said $12k for there full kit. I may buy parts and see if i can do some on my own. Or just work a lot of overtime at work to get it. Lol.

    The R2.8L cummins is worse. I emailed axis industries. Its like $9k for the engine alone, then about $8500 for all there accessories.

    If you looking in the $6500 class, a crate 350 is not to far off that. Novak and advanced adapters make adapters to tie back in to you trans and change the motor mounts that will do anyway. Adds a lot more power and one of the most reliable power plants out there.

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.
