A straightforward swap

December 1, 2009 | By Richard Prince


Is there any chance that a small block Chevy engine will bolt into a 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer? If it won’t, how could I make this engine swap happen? I have a Chevy Blazer with a terrible body and strong engine/driveline and a Jeep with a worn-out motor and a great body.


Swapping the Chevrolet engine into your Jeep Wagoneer is a fairly straightforward endeavor.

Various companies sell engine mounts, transmission adaptors, and various other parts you will need. Contact BJ's Off-Road (bjsoffroad.com), Novak Conversions (novak-adapt.com), and 4 Wheel Parts (4wheelparts.com).
