This shouldn't be an issue. What injectors did you use?

It turns over just doesnt fire. Not sure if its a fuel issue (fuel is getting to the rail), or a spark issue

Yea I'm going to pull the fuel rail to see if the injectors are actually spraying.

The new Jeep thing will just simplify this swap a lot. I'd build an aftermarket cluster which will also be really helpful.

factory 96 and down gauges are pretty easy to re use in a swap, no computer needed so its just a matter of plumbing the jeep sensors into the v8

Do you have good fuel pressure?

That is why I went aftermarket gauges on mine. Although I wish I would have saved up for Autometers and not bought those shitty Intellitronix gauges.

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

If you have fuel and spark the engine has to start.
Check if you have spark. (fuse, cables, coils...)

Not necessarily. This presupposes that ignition and mechanical timing are correct. I'd verify those.

Its still not ready, but I'm buying a new XJ.

99 XJ
37x12.5x17 Goodyear MTR tires
4.86 Gears
Currie Hi-9 Front Axle with Detroit TrutracCurrie
HD 9+ Rear Axle with ARB air locker
PSC Hydro assist
Low8point interior roll cage
5" Lift Deaver front springs
Deaver rear spring pack



So I think I'm going to swap the LS into this Jeep and the 4.0 into the red Jeep.
