Well pulled motor and head 2 cyl definiatly lunched figured head was toast but my machinist saved it also had a piston for it so after complete valve job new piston and timing chain guides going back together hope to get it back in Fri also did a new w pump t stat tensioners drive belt injector o rings and 1 rod bearing oh and a few exh manifold bolts hope I hit the timing marks seemed easy enogh to
I had no issues removing the damper as I was a mopar tech for years and have the correct pullers 2 minutes done eng is out on a stand and 1&2 pistons came right out without pulling the crank.Machine shop installed oversize intake seat and saved the head replaced 2 piston and repaired 1 replace rings and rod bearings on said pistons and reinstalled .My issue is with head tourqe book says to torque head
how deep is your wallet because everything that you are talking about doing is going to cost a lot of . for ecu re-programing you will want to go httpwww.bgperformancepcm.com the jet chip is a waste of cash does not do a thing the mean green alternator wont do you much because the alternator is PCM controlled its pretty much a waste of for the turbo or supercharger You would have to do major work to the motor for a turbo not to destroy the motor. pistons bearings connecting rods etc. itll blow the piston rings off stock pistons if you want some great info on the KJ hit up httpen.wikibooks.orgwikijeep_libertyPerformance and httpwww.lostjeeps.comforumphpBB3index.php
I pulled the pan with the engine still in. If you drop the subframe down some and lift the engine it comes out. You can buy one piston at the dealer. It was 75 with the connecting rod. The rings and bearings are extra. Total was around 100. Now Im looking for a right side head. Im going to replace the radiatorwaterpump and T-stat.. And flush the coolant.. If it is because of over heating maybe that will help..

BTW the manual in my 04 calls for 87 octane gas. Using a higher octane is actually bad for the engine.
