    Posting a question to the TJ fans. I have only been around the 4.0 AMC Tj's, so I know little about the 4 hole types.

    1) would the auto trans hold up to a AMC V8

    2) Bolt pattern on the auto the same as the AMC I6/V8

    3) Comp, Will it confuse the rest of the jeep if swapped with a old TBI? (trans comp controlled?)

    4) I know it would be easier to find a "good" 4 hole to replace the dead one, but if you could would you go to a amc I6/V8?

    If I understand correctly you're asking about a 4cyl automatic TJ? The 2.5L Jeep 4cyl used the GM 60-degree V6 bolt pattern, so no, the transmission won't match any other AMC/Jeep engine. I absolutely would not bother with an engine swap in a TJ. There are just far too many 6cyl TJ's out there to make it worthwhile. You're better off spending some money to get the 4cyl running and then selling the 4cyl TJ and buying the 6cyl version.
