Default Grand Cherokee engine in an 02 Ram??

hey guys. considering having an engine to play around with while i drive my ram. surfing around about the 02 4.7s, it seems this particular engine is kinda a 1 year engine. my previous vehicle before my ram was an 01 GC, but it was AWD and got around 10-11MPG. traded that for a ram for a little bit better MGP, plus, can haul more stuff with the pickup. by far the GC had better power with the HO cams than my ram, and wish i could find an engine like i had in the GC to build and throw into the ram. a couple questions come to mind about doing this type of swap. How would i determine if this is the different one year engine than the rest? depending on the engine in the truck, how hard of a swap would i be looking at to swing engines(i.e. harness, computer, etc.)? any and all advise would be greatly appreciated, and would be very informal to other 4.7 rammers who probably though about, or wanted to do something like this regardless of engine difference and the like.

Tony

Are you looking for more output from your 4.7 Ram? If so, I know a guy selling is HO Cams, look at getting a tune, 08 intake, and a 70mm TB, which I can help with that.

Thanks.

Stampede.

im definitelly interested in a set of HO cams, i just need to see if my engine is one of those odd ball engines. i dont see why the HO cams wouldnt work. not sure whats unique about the 02 4.7 compared to the other years. looking to see others chime in and get their .02.

also not looking to do the 08 intake swap. im toying with the idea of a m112, HO cams, Heads from airram, bigger TB, etc. not looking to go absolutelly nuts, but i want some more power from my ram, plus i havent played around with a supercharger before. a couple turbo cars, but not a blower so this would be a first for me.

im looking to see if the engine i have in the ram is the one found ONLY in the 02s. based on that answer will determine what i do from there. searching around the forum the best way to determine this is to look at the pcm connector. if it is the 02 only motor, then i may swing a motor that already has the HO cams (4.7 GC). if it is not, then i will work on the motor in the truck.
