View Here : Willys Jeep V8 Conversion
"STICK A V8 IN IT!" is my new series in Forza Horizon 2 where I take an unsuspecting little car and dump a throbbing V8 in it. In today's episode I create a monster from a Willys Jeep.
Description. 1955 Jeep with V8 conversion. No rust, or body damage. Good tires. Dual exhaust. Runs strong. 5 speed, 456 gears, 4wd high and low.
I run a Buick v6 in my 1953 willys jeep. I personally think a V8 is over kill. Also, the stock jeep drive train is rated at 1/4 ton. That t90 won't hold up to v8 abuse. If you baby it around, the T 90 would probably work, but if you have to baby it, then why have a v8. I also run a SM420 4 speed transmission.

I'm old school on the swap. Except for highway travel, a 4 banger seems to be a good choice for an early jeep. I have a 3.0 Mercruiser waiting for my F head to expire. I also think that the Pinto motor makes a cool swap, and the budget master seems to be the '80-'81 Iron Duke GM 4 cylinder.
