Considering a Jeep Hemi Swap?
Thinking about 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
As you know Jeep parts are NOT cheap and can add up rather quickly, especially in efforts of creating your dream Jeep. It's a matter of time before you have a whole bunch of parts and accessories and not a whole lot of money. With that said we recommend investing in a high quality power adder such as our renown turbocharger system. Adding more parts is only going to decrease your Jeeps performance by adding more weight. Do it right the first time and invest your money in something that is going to keep your Jeep performing at it's best.
Total money spent is barely comparable. The Prodigy turbo system is a whole lot less in regards to what you can expect to pay when considering a Jeep Hemi Conversion. Prodigy Performance offers our complete Turbo Kit for about $7,000. Figure $1,200 - $1,500 if you hire a professional to install your kit. Installing a Hemi or LS engine will set you back anywhere from $24,000 - $32,000. The price will fluctuate depending on how big of a motor you decide to go with. We offer a solution at a fraction of the price, not to mention the amount you will save on insurance by not having to insure a big V8 engine. Your rates WILL SOAR if you decide to go with the hemi.
With all the money you will save by installing our turbo kit you will be able to purchase all of those non essential parts that you know you want! Your wife will never know!
Time is a huge factor! Depending on your situation, if you're using your Jeep as your daily driver you will be out of a vehicle for up to 21 days. Talk about inconvenient! So you will either need to borrow a vehicle or purchase a rental car which will easily cost you an additional $400-$700 in rental fees alone. Additionally, the time it takes to prepare and place your order for a Jeep hemi swap typically requires 1-2 weeks notice.
Whereas, our Prodigy Performance turbo kits are always in stock ready for same day shipping. Upon delivery owners may decide to proceed with the install themselves or hire a professional to get the installation done. Our kit is shipped and accompanied with a 50+ page manual as well as full video instructional series easily accessible via YouTube, to assist in the installation. On average, we recommend 10-12 hours for first time installations. We have reports of a father and son installing the kit in their driveway over the span of 1 weekend. Shops with experience installing our products can crank out the installation within 6-9 hours!
Time is money.
A V-8 adds a lot of unnecessary extra weight to your Jeep. Weighing in at approximately 200 - 300 additional pounds to your stock Wrangler. Whereas, our Prodigy turbo kits add about 50 lbs overall. The turbo kit is much lighter and efficient when compared to the big V8 motor, all while producing MORE power. The overall additional weight added from the hemi will result in the need for increased stopping power. You may find your brakes to become a bit less responsive after the installation of the hemi. It would be advisable to sink an additional investment in your Jeeps brakes due to the additional weight accompanied by the Jeep hemi conversion.
A Prodigy Turbo Kit actually improves your gas mileage. Turbocharged engines are more efficient due to the nature of the system. Turbo Jeeps utilize the vehicles exhausted gas to spin the turbine resulting in less work load from the engine itself when driven conservatively. Our customers see between 1-4 mpg increase after turbocharging their Jeep. As you can assume the V8 hemi's are anything but economical. Diesel fuel in general is much more expensive and is not as sought after as it once was. Overall you not only lose significant miles per gallon but also have to deal with the additional expenses of "DEF" and the much more expensive cost of diesel fuel.

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.
