Whittier, Calif. â Trans Dapt Performance Products manufactures a proven V8 engine swap crossmember kit for the 1987-95 Jeep Wrangler YJ. This easy to use kit is a true bolt-in, no-welding required design, that allows the YJ to easily accommodate a variety of Chevrolet small block and big block V8 engines as well as the Chevy 4.3L V6.
In 1986 General Motors made a significant change to its classic Small Block Chevy V8 engines when it changed to a one-piece rear man seal. This change in engine design also happened to coincide with the adoption of fuel injection in most of GM’s cars and trucks. These factory fuel injected motors are perfect candidates for the S10’s power upgrade as they are abundant, cheap and efficient. Both four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive pickups can benefit from the all-inclusive swap kit that includes parts from Trans Dapt Performance Products, Hedman Hedders and Hamburger’s Performance Products.
