Custom Aluminum Jeep with a Supercharged L83 V8
by Christopher Christopher Published in engineswapdepot.com
This custom Jeep is being built by Blue Ribbon Auto Restoration. The project starts with an aluminum Jeep CJ2 body from Aquala Industries sitting on a custom aluminum chassis with Corvette C6/C7 fully independent suspension. Power will be generated by a supercharged 5.3 L L83 V8 (5th gen) with LT1 crank and rods, custom pistons, upgraded camshaft, and Whipple supercharger. Power will be sent to the rear 345 tires through an 8L90E eight-speed automatic transmission and 2017 Camaro IRS rear end. View more photos of the project in the FB build album.
