I have been looking to do this swap myself but I am planning for 400+HP I know the 5.2 computer won't keep up, it probably wouldn't keep up with a stock 5.9 from what I've read, you will most likely need the computer from the 5.9. I don't know if the Jeep is the same, $300.00 for a rebuild-able core sounds good to me , I would tear it down re-ring , bearing , valve job, timing chain and all new gaskets at least. I haven't seen any low mileage runners in that price range.
