Hemi vs. LS Swap

Jeep JK V8 swap: why a Hemi is better than an LS engine

Which is better: Chevy or Mopar? That long-lived debate is hard to settle unless you’re talking about Jeep engine swaps – then the answer is undoubtedly Mopar. While LS engines are great, there’s no substitute for a powerful Hemi engine in a Chrysler Corporation product, like the Jeep Wrangler JK.

Don’t get us wrong; we love LS engines. In fact, we produced a Chevy conversion for many years. But there’s one major problem with the Wrangler LS swap: it isn’t smog legal. At least not in California and other states with similar emissions laws. Plus, getting a Chevy V8 to work in a Chrysler product is troublesome, to say the least.
