Well I took it for a drive today and all I can say is why didnít they put this in from the factory?
Power is great. Now I just gotta get the second O2 sensor, finish the exhaust, and wait for my new hood latches to get here. Had to cut the upper support where the hood latch bolts on cause I didnít want to put a body lift on it. I ordered a set of JK style latches for it that are all metal, no rubber to dry rot on me. Hereís what I ordered.

So I haven't posted anything here for awhile. Having some issues with the 2.0 and I keep bending the YJ springs. Getting ready to go big with it. Got Toyota axles for it, almost done going through them. Doing something a little different with the engine also, but leaving that as a surprise for now.

I've got a 1.8 (almost the same thing as the 2.0) in a Sidekick and really like the engine.

I'm not sure on the weight of the 2.0, I seem to remember that it's somewhere around 300 lbs

Ok, I got the new engine block and crank back from the machine shop. Should have the rest of the rebuild kit on Friday, then I can take the valve seals to the machine shop so that can get finished up. Should get the bottom end put together this weekend.

Got tired of trying to figure out why it kept missing on number one.
