Cool on the turbo, no shops around here fabbing up turbo kits for the Jeeps (at least none that I am aware of). As for the motor, buy the 426 and its just an engine swap over the weekend. No real downtime.
It will be a custom made kit, not a bolt on. So all pipes will be bent and welded at the shop i go to. I like to be unique so I have never bought a bolt on kit, i have this shop build a customer fabbed one. Yes it involves a little bit of down time but it saves a ton of money. Plus he is a sponsor on my website so i get a fair price.
As far as the 426 i personally cant afford to by a whole seperate motor, and if i were to get a forged motor i would assemble it myself in the future. my projects take time because i dont have enough money to have it all at once.
A lot of planning and a lot of budgeting.
So right now best bang for my buck would be adding boost. Down the road though i plan to upgrade to the 426.
