The 2018 Jeep Wrangler was only debuted last year, with the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Already are we seeing it modified with new engines.
Bruiser Conversions have taken the new Wrangler and fitted it with a General Motors 6.2-liter LS3 V-8. First posted on their Facebook page, the hefty engine barely fits within the compartment.
This modification allows the off-road SUV to achieve around 450 horsepower, with the same degree of torque. This is a powerful upgrade from the 285 hp and 260 pound-feet of torque from its 3.6-liter V-6 or 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 engine.
The post also stated that the engine is connected to the original 8-speed automatic transmission. Outside of that, nothing else has been said about the vehicle. You can likely expect a loss in fuel efficiency, but that's easily made up for in power.
Feeling envious? I don't blame you, I'd love one. Well good news for us both: Bruiser Conversions is offering LS3 V-8 engine kits. Wangler owners can install it themselves, or in-house. No word on the pricing for the kit, though I'm sure that won't stop people.
