    Found it, thx.

    Definitely the right way to enjoy your retirement.
    If I may ask, what was the reason to go with the crate L94 motor?

    Preeb I went with the L94 because Robbie can get it to pass smog in CA.

    So Motech can guarantee the swap is CA smog legal and can get it through the process in CA? Last time i spoke to Motech, they said they were working on the CA process but didn't have a solution at that time.

I'm still waiting on my new Atlas transfer case. I am very excited. After mine is done it will be very close to what Moby is running. I went with the L94 as I can get it through smog in CA. Robbie and Motech has what it takes to get the swap done right.

    Robbie can do it on an L94 working with a one on one situation. He is also getting two vehicles ready for inspection. He thinks he can get what he needs to get them smogged with in the next yr. Everything I am talking about is over my head and I don't want to get what Robbie told me wrong. So it is best too give him a call but I think it looks good for CA.

    Engine swap

    Hi, I had an L9h installed by Motech last January. I live in Ca and I am still waiting for it to be able to pass smog inspection. I have talked to Robbie and he is working very hard to get these engines to pass Ca inspections.

    That is very good news... keep us posted on the results. That is the only piece holding me back.

    You have to grab your ankles and let the State inspector fuck you up the ass 4 times but the catch is they require a biodegradable vegan lube that is made from a flower that only blossoms once every 2 years and you can only buy enough for a single use per person per bloom. Needless to say, it's an uncomfortable and time consuming process.

    They used to apply the lube with a straw, but those have since been banned, so the whole process is in limbo now.

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.
