Jeep Head Modifications for the Original American SUV

Increase your Jeep's performance by installing a Remanufactured Racing 
Head that increases the breathing capability through the use of oversized 
lightweight hardened racing valves and head porting.  Combine this head 
with a free flowing exhaust system and ported induction system, and a 
properly indexed camshaft, then you have bolt on power without 
increasing displacement.  We can further increase the power potential by 
installing a race prepared NOS ready short block (or complete engine 
assembly).  Our special short blocks use custom made Nitrous enhanced 
pistons, performance connecting rods, and special trick fabrications that 
put power with dependability in your mountain tamer. If you don't want to
install a stump pulling high torque 350 Chevy, and you want to keep your
Jeep looking original in the engine compartment, let LaPouttre Racing 
Heads \ Engines install a Jeep Torque Master Engine Fabrication in 
America's Favorite Original SUV.
