This small-block Chevy Crate Engine makes big-block power. This combination of GM Fast Burn Aluminum Performance Heads and a 383" Stroker Small-Block adds up to 425 horsepower and 449 lb.-ft. of torque.

The Fast Burn heads have large 2.00"/1.55" valves and specially designed chambers that draw in lots of air and fuel, burning the mixture quickly and completely.

It's a combination that generates great mid- and high-rpm power, which, when combined with the 383 cubic inch displacement, creates an awesome all-around performer.

If you stomp on this one, you
will pop a wheely or spin the tires - no in between!

The ZZ383 has a specially modified engine block and 3.80"-stroke crankshaft, which produce 383 cubic inches of pure performance.

The reciprocating assembly is comprised of heavy-duty components including a 4340, nitrided, and induction hardened forged crankshaft, and unique heavy-duty powdered metal rods. It's 425 horses of bulletproof performance.

The TCI® Street Fighter® transmission is tough enough to withstand the rigors of even the toughest street machines. Designed for vehicles powered by engines producing 450 horsepower.

Equipped with TCIs Manual/Automatic valve body, you are able to manually shift the vehicle into each gear change or, by placing it in the drive position, remain fully automatic. In either mode, you get a racetrack shift that bangs through the gears and shaves time off your ET's.

When you use the manual gear selection feature, the Street Fighter® up-shifts and downshifts right when you move the lever - no lag or governor override.

When you select the normal drive position, the transmission retains positive, automatic shifts for the ease of driving you look for in an automatic transmission.

Larry's Comment: Wow! Very nice Tom!

Do you still have 4x4 capability? If so, do you use it off road? Is your YJ mostly set-up for street and strip? The tires look like AT's in the photos. Thanks

Still has 4X4 Capability
by: Tom

I still have 4X4 capability; however, the torque makes traction difficult to maintain. Despite my efforts to feather the throttle, bumps and such make it tough to maintain traction off-road - even when all four are locked up. It performs great on pavement.

Sexy Ride
by: Mary Davis

This is one of the hottest looking Wranglers I have ever seen. I would love to take this baby on a long hard ride!

Very Cool!
by: Bill Johnson

You really did a nice job putting this rig together. Have you considered doing this for someone else? I have a 2005 Wrangler that is stock. I'd appreciate visiting with you before I get started with my modifications.
