Putting a non HO4.7 into a 2002 4.7HO Grand Cherokee WJ? Possible?

Recommended Posts

My brother picked up a 2002 Grand witha bad 4.7HO in it. I guess the grand is in beautiful shape but it has a bum motor. 

I guess he is having a hard time finding a 2002 4.7HO to put in it and he is wondering if there is a way to put a non HO 4.7 into it.

2002 and up WJ’s had two 4.7’s available. The HO had 30 hp more than the non ho.

One difference is the computer, also the ho had a 32 tooth tone wheel were as the non ho had a 16 in 2002. Later non’s had the 32 tooth wheel. That’s about all I know of that. This is my brothers project, not mine, I told him to steer clear of WJ’s in general and 4.7’s in particular.

I was just wondering if they were similar enough that you could swap some parts from the HO you have to make the regular 4.7 into a HO version.

Yeah, looking into that. Whole new world of info that I would prefer not having to get into as I have no intention of ever owning one. Lol
