    Big HP

    Hi. What do you have under the hood that isn't stock? Just wondering what ours have done.

    My 2.5L 4banger has a performance cam, larger injectors, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, 62mm throttle body and spacer, and a Firepower ignition kit by Performance Distributors. Then there's the electric fan and low 5.38 axle gears. Everything combines to make it a fun light Jeep.

    Well, my current CJ7 I built to be a daily driver, but that does not mean it's stock. I had the heads remilled, removed or bypassed all the emissions (with the limits of MD law), added an after market cam with slightly higher lift/longer duration, HEI and a perfectly tuned Weber 32/36 carb. I rebuilt and regeared both axles for 3.54's

    Not much here yet. Weber carb and GM HEI ignition. Discontinued all unesential vacuum lines. All has helped. The plan is to build a stroker this winter.
    If you want to drive a sports car, Buy a mustang.

    I too live in MD you should get historic or street rod tags. They got rid of most of the requirements and its way cheaper. $52.50 for 2 years. and NO MORE EMISSIONS!!!!
