You want cool factor get a turbo or a supercharger. One guy I know has a supercharger on his 4.0 in his TJ and it is a lot of fun. :chuckle:

Now you're talking!!! 

I had a TRD supercharger put on my 2013 Tacoma when it was brand new, actually I let it get broken in and had it put on at 3k, made a HUGE difference in that V6 4.0 over stock.  It was like driving two completely different vehicles.

Turbos are fun.

You'll be amazed at the torque increase with a stroker.  I'm gettting new motor mounts cause mine torque steers now when u get on it.  I mulled around about an LS swap but the expense of basically a whole new drive train wasn't in the budget at the time.

All TJ's have torque steer because of the 4 link / panhard bar suspension setup.
I would imagine your motor mounts were probably worn out before the swap and the extra torque finally did them in.

Anyone that thinks a Glock is better than a 1911 paints his toenails.

Yep i did the same. I rebuilt mine from one end to the other anyhow, but i like the idea of having v8 power in a nice stock package under the hood. I have some complain about the dependability of this build, but it may take me 10 years to put 25,000 miles on this jeep.

Buddy if mine has had a stroke 4.0, and a supercharged 4.0.
Both were awesome! I'd go with a stroker over the forced induction, just to keep it that much simpler.

I am going with the stroker. Tom's performance is building it for me as soon as i get off my azz, and pull the motor for him to start.
