Considering a Jeep Hemi Swap?

by Prodigy Performance on (811 Views) 0 comments

Thinking of a Hemi or LS swap for your Jeep Wrangler?

Consider Turbocharging your existing engine with a Prodigy Performance Turbo Kit instead.

6 Reasons to GO TURBO over a Hemi/LS swap


A Prodigy Turbocharged Wrangler is more powerful than a 6.4L Hemi - and we have the proof!  Watch how a Prodigy Turbo Jeep performs against a 6.4L GC on the track.  (see more performance videos below)


A Prodigy Turbo Kit is $8,500* installed  (*prices may vary ) Save $20,000 or more  when you Turbocharge your existing engine!  A complete install of a Hemi or LS engine will cost between $23,000 and $32,000 from a qualified installer.

3. TIME! 

A Prodigy Turbo Kit can be installed in a single day.  The more expensive, less powerful Hemi or LS swap can take up to 2-3 weeks.  Time = money


A V-8 adds a lot of unnecessary extra weight to your Jeep (2-300 lbs).  At approx. 50 lbs, the Prodigy Turbo Kit keeps your car light while still providing you with extra power.  Extra weight results in need for increased stopping power from your brakes


A Prodigy Turbo Kit actually improves your gas mileage.  Turbocharged engines are more efficient.  Our customers see between 1-4 mpg increase after turbocharging their Jeep.


- Hemi/LS conversions require you to change/modify/remove all of parts of the following Jeep systems/components: 

- Air Conditioning

- Cool system - radiator, hoses, thermostat, etc

- Wiring harness, computer, electircal system components

- Transmission

- Entire exhaust system

- Cutting and welding of original Jeep frame

Anyone who has a Jeep Wrangler knows that more power is what you really want. While stuffing a big V8 engine under the hood of your Jeep seems like a no-brainer, there are better options out there. Installing a Hemi or LS engine will set you back anywhere from $23,000 - $32,000. Sure, you'll get more power than the Wrangler's stock V-6 Pentastar, but you can get just as much and even more power by installing a Prodigy Performance "bolt-on" Turbo Kit to your existing engine.

Prodigy Performance offers our complete Turbo Kit for about $7,000. Figure $1,200 - $1,500 if you have a professional install and for 1/3 to 1/4 the cost of your V-8 options, you can double the RWHP of your Wrangler! And to top it off, you'll even get better gas mileage.

Prodigy is proud to have the best driveability, the best shifting, the best cruising and the best acceleration of any power adder you can add to your Jeep.

Check out what some of our customers say about their Turbo Jeep.
"I had my first Prodigy Turbo Kit installed in my 2010 Jeep 3.8L 2-Door and had great results. It is still to this day making my 42 in tires turn with great power. Last year I purchased a 2015 Jeep JKU with a 3.6 Pentastar. I wanted more power and more performance. Made a call to Dan @prodigyperformance and they shipped me the PRO-2002 Stage 2 Kit right out. The Turbo is running great in my new build. Great people, great service and a great product. Thanks and they're always there to answer any questions or concerns."

"I bought a Prodigy Stage 2 Turbo Kit for my 2015 Jeep Wrangler.  SSS Garage in Dubai sold it and installed it for me.  Prodigy took my PCM and re-programmed it so  would accept the Prodigy tune.  I have the  first install SSS did after becoming Authorized Distributor/Dealer for Prodigy in UAE.  They did a fantastic job and I am very pleased with the system.  I drive it very hard in the dunes outside Dubai as well as on the highway.  I am very impressed with how well it performs in the hot desert here where temperatures exceed 120 degrees F.  I have friends who have installed hemi engines in their Wranglers and it is fun to watch their faces when they see how much more power I have to theirs hemi.  I recommend everyone to get Prodigy Turbo if you want big power.  Thank you Prodigy Performance!

My 2013 Wrangler is both a daily driver and an occasional off-road toy.  It has been turbocharged for almost 3 years and 40,000 miles now.  I started with the Prodigy Stage 1, then upgraded to the Stage 2 a few months later.  The power is intoxicating and makes the Jeep all around more fun to drive.  This isn't just "more power", "the amount of power a Jeep should have", or "pretty fast for a Jeep."  This goes above and beyond into "ridiculously fast for a Jeep" territory and has a tendency to trigger involuntary smiles and laughter in both drivers and passenger when you open the throttle.

" I purchased a Prodigy Stage 2 kit for my 2015 Wrangler.  I wanted to add more power to my Jeep and after much research decided to go with a Prodigy Turbo over the supercharger options.  After driving it for 2+ months, I’m sure glad I went with the Prodigy Turbo!  It has amazing power, much more than I expected.  They also gave me a super deal on other Jeep accessories I was looking for.  If you’ve thought about a forced induction system for your Wrangler, Prodigy is the only way to go."

"I purchased a 2015 JKUR and bought a Prodigy Stage 2 with Precision dual ceramic ball bearing. Let me tell you as a repeat customer from their first kits (bought a Stage 1 and upgraded to Stage 2 when it became available) through the testing and tuning process to where Prodigy is now…. LEAPS and BOUNDS! Now having their new turbo on my new Jeep for almost a year and a half, I can honestly say I am very pleased with the custom tune from Prodigy. The quality of the pipes and the TIG welding is second to none.  This is a massive upgrade from their first kit(s) when they introduced the turbo kit for the Pentastar engine back in 2012/2013.  Everything in the box is packaged and labeled, easy to read for a DIY weekend project. On their website they have a detailed step by step install video that is very helpful.  You can skip through the different videos or follow along to each video step by step, depending on your mechanical knowledge. All the videos are in chronological order.  My buddy and I were able to do it with just the basic tools over a weekend.  It really is a complete bolt on kit!  Prodigy sent me 1 tune and it is excellent right out of the box. Drivability is seamless if you have an automatic and plan on upgrading your tire size from stock.
I’ve had 3 JK's, a 2007 Unlimited Sahara (non turbo) sold, 2012 Unlimited Sport (Prodigy’s Garret Turbo stage 1, upgraded to Stage 2) sold, 2015 Unlimited Rubicon (Prodigy’s Precision Turbo Stage 2) currently have.  Going forward, I don’t think I will ever have a JK that doesn’t have a Prodigy Kit on it.  That’s my honest opinion.  There really isn’t a way to describe the feeling you get when you have all the characteristics of a turbo spooling and that BOOST you feel under the hood of your modified JK with the doors and top off, hearing all the superb sounds around you in the open cabin of your jeep.  It is a JOY to drive."
