Default SRT engine swap

So the past couple of weeks I've been curious. Can you swap out the engine in a 97-2001 cherokee for an srt engine if you change the transmission ,wiring harness, and computer?

You could put a helicopter jet engine in a 97-01 Cherokee if you did enough work. You could fill the body with lead, seal everything airtight, and turn it into a submarine if you wanted to.

Anything can be done with Fabrication. I know some folks put SBC's in them. Be sure to stiffen up that Unibody.

Time money and/or skill is all it takes. If you have to ask on a forum, I doubt you want to get into it.
