You can get the normal 4.0L engines going very good. Not worth it going to an XR6 engine, where there are only minor differences to the head/cam.

do up a ef/el engine. u get the benefit of the BBM and the serpintine belt. If u get a decent cam and a port and polish job done on the head it will better than the standard xr engine.

Spend the cash that would otherwise be used on buying the new motor, on mods for your original motor.
