The Hemi head mod is amazing!
But it would change the engine so drastically that it hardly can be called a jeep engine..
A turbo is a great adition.
It is done with the VW air cooled engine around here.
Never seen a turbo charged jeep, it is another world.
Frankly, I have been thinking doing a turbo mod to the jeep.
Maybe one day...

Food for thought !

The over head cam, in line 6 "Tornado" engine used by Willys is a Hemi head engine.

I have a couple of the Tornado engines locally that I have worked on. One in a J-200 pick up that I rebuilt and another in an M-715.
They seem to have a problem with the rocker arm guides breaking. The long timing chain looks a bit lanky, but have not had any problem with it.
Other than that, their performance and power is pretty impressive. More like a V-8. And a whole lot of torque.
