I have to agree. I've made the mistake in the past to over analyze some of the projects I've gotten into. I blame the internet. Before the internet, you just did it and figured it out. Do some searching of the net, compile some parts and go at it. I spent more time researching my AW4 swap, then it took to actually do it.

ok, now rereading what I posted, may be able to come off not what I meant. lol. "I love beer..." ok, but ya really, if your going to stay carbonated, the 4.0 swap is simple as swapping a 4.2 really. its when you want to do efi that things start to get interesting. done did the 4.0 swap a year ago. in my driveway like most people would do, not at the shop I work at, to make things easier. (tho in hindsight, I really wish I did!!!) if you got an engine hoist, and basic tools, you can do it yourself.

Sweet ☺

What did you end up using for a fuel pump? I was thinking about using the one from the XJ then a fuel pressure regulator if one could be found and that made to work.

If not a 4 -5 psi ought to work.

I would not attempt to use a high pressure pump and regulate it down to 4-5 psi. Not sure there is a regulator that can do that effectively. It would have to be a return style and it will really heat up the fuel in the tank. A universal one like this Mr. Gasket, will work fine. Not to mention they are cheap enough to keep an extra one in the car. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/mrg-4 ... 7AodiDgADQ

Though not in an eagle, I've been running the factory type in tank pump in my carbed xj with a regulator and return line for almost 3 years now, with no pump issues. :blazin: Have also hooked my pressure gauge to it (it's made for dual feed holley) to monitor the pressure it idle, cruise, and WOT conditions, all is good.

im running a NAPA vane type fuel pump. it has to be mounted completely vertical. its the only one that still works. I had those craptastic mr. gasket pumps. worked for about 10 miles. (almost 50 mile one way drive to work, had a few pissed off late days late due to pos pump.) the napa pump I got works great. its an 8 psi pump, but run it with the stock type eagle fuel filter with return system. (they apply around 3 psi to the carb, the rest goes to the return line to the tank. it was somewhere around $70 my cost. (we are a NAPA auto care center by the way.) been tickled to death with this pump. turn the key on for about 3 seconds, can hear the pump pressurize. one pump on the loud pedal, just think about touching the key, and shes running. 10 seconds after fireing up when its above 40* blip the throttle, and its down to a 550 rpm SMOOTH idle.
