Kenneth, great thread, since you're a helicopter mechanic I'm sure this was well within your scope.

For us shade-tree mechanics I'm sure it would be a bit more "adventurous" :)

How much are you in for with this swap if you don't mind me asking??

Yeah, it could be more adventurous for others, but anyone that has common mechanical abilities could do it. I’m in it about $14,000, the kit shipped was $10,200, the engine was $3,000 and I figure $800 more for various parts/supplies, fluids, and A/C recharge. His kit price has went up $1,500 since I purchased it, with the 392 coming out I can imagine these kits will reduce in price greatly. It will give people a cheaper option to swap then to purchase. They will if they want to stay in business that is, especially if Mopar ends up throwing a Hellcat in them in the future.

Great thread for us capable and more cost conscious. Hopefully as the JL matures we will see more builds like this. Thanks for sharing!

In your engine swap how much electrical can you get rid of? We’re you able to get rid of the stop start etc? Thanks.

The start/stop function is 100% disabled, that’s about the only permanent change, it comes with its own Tazer JL with special programming to keep the bad data codes from throwing a check engine light. All the standard functions of the Tazer are the same.
