i talked to the guy (w/ the xj) and it dosen't sound to bad of a deal. i'm going to check it out next saturday and if it works out driving it home. some exhuast and other goodie might make it not so gutless. i'll keep you guys posted.

thats what i had in my jeep for the last two years it worked great enough power to spin em if i needed it. if it has the 4 10 gears i would go for it unless it has the peugeot tranny.

That 2.5 is just an Chevy "Iron Duke" isn't it? That's what they used in the YJs.

They only push out about 85-90 hp and about 125 ft/lbs torque if I remember correctly. Somewhere around those numbers if I'm wrong.

I think that 2.5 rates right there with the 2.8 V-6 for power :rotfl:
