Hello from Wisconsin! I just purchased my 85 eagle about a week ago. I bought a 4 dr sedan from a fello in Idaho. I plan on using her as my daily driver. I am planning on a 4.0 head swap and was planning on using the fuel system also. I did one of these swaps on my 76 hornet and it worked out very very well. I cant decide if I should keep the eagle trans/and transfercase or swap in the 4.0 trans and case. Wouldnt mind the overdrive.

welcome to Evo!, and *2 on what Doug said about being the next great eagle site. if you plan on adding the jeep trans, the AW4 is controlled by the computer. otherwise I am not to versed on the 4.0 and trans that were offered with it. I do plan on learning more about it though.

Welcome to Evo! Saw your post further down, that's a beauty of a sedan you've got! Don't know if you're already aware of this, so I apologize if you are, but if you swap in a Jeep t-case, you'll need the Jeep rear driveshaft, too. My thoughts are, if you're in there swapping things, & have an idea what you're doing, why not go whole hog & just put the entire Jeep drivetrain in? Then all you're worrying about is physical fitment (shouldn't be a problem in your sedan), & wiring up the computer. Just my two bits. :cheers:

Well...ignore my other post on your Eagle page. I see you picked it up in Idaho and live in Wisconsin. Enjoy your Eagle and good luck with the swap. Do document it for us here!

first off welcome to the site

if it where I'd take the crank, rods, and oil pan and swap them onto/into a 232 power plant to make a little more hp and then go with the rest of the "modern" drivetrain to take advantage of the over drive gear in the trans and the better optioned transfer case (IMO). doing that swap will require that you wire the trans up and I believe you have to modify the floor of the eagle for the transfer case to sit properly.
Post up on your progress and post some pictures

Did you mean a 242 (4.0) Bill? The 258 is already a stroked 232.
