This is where it all began. In 2006 BOR made a breakthrough in Hemi JK programming, and for a full 2 years we had the only Hemi JK engine programs. Due to our commitment to provide the highest quality programming we have made sure that all factory functionality is retained once your Hemi is installed.
All systems are functional including: cruise control, ABS, ESP, gauges, airbags, remote start, nothing is lost. No Check engine lights are present and all emission systems are retained. Our engine programs are all specific to each style of Hemi engine. Grand Cherokee engines use factory Grand Cherokee programs, truck Hemi engines use factory truck engine programming and so forth. All programs are adapted to the JK to make a seamless install that is factory perfect. That’s one reason why Mopar has used BOR to build several Hemi equipped Jeeps. And there are more on the way.
Nowhere else will you find a wider selection of possible Hemi engine choices. We are able to install all Gen. 3 Hemi engines in a JK (5.7, 6.1, 6.4, 7.0, 5.7 VVT, 6.4 VVT, 6.7 VVT, 7.0 VVT). BOR is the only company that can properly install and preserve all functionality of the 2009 and newer 5.7 VVT truck motor.
If you are in the market for BIG HP a stroker motor or even a supercharged stroker motor with ported heads and a camshaft may be the perfect fit. Just imagine driving around with 700 horses under the hood, something very few JK Owners will ever experience.
Conversions are assembled with only top quality parts. 90 percent of the components in the conversion are from Mopar. The other 10 percent are manufactured by established companies. The battery tray/air box, motor mounts, transmission mount, fan shroud, etc. are all manufactured by Nemesis Industries, The radiator is built by Griffin, and the computer programming is all completed in house. We are in constant communication with all of our manufactures to ensure that we always have parts ready for your conversion.
The battery tray/air box, throttle body adapters, fan shroud for truck motors, motor mounts and transmission mount are all designed using The latest in CAD design technology, The motor mounts and transmission mount are made of high quality laser cut steel, formed on a CNC press brake and expertly assembled by certified welders. The battery tray/air box, throttle body adapters, and fan shroud are made from high quality aluminum cut on a Waterjet, then once again formed on a CNC press brake to ensure accuracy then assembled by certified TIG welders. Our harnesses are built by trained professionals and computer tested before shipment for functionality. All of the components used in the conversion are brand new.
Depending on your motor choice we will design and build the perfect exhaust. We can take into consideration extended range fuel tanks, skid plates, desired tone, and legal requirements for your state to ensure that you are 100 percent satisfied with the conversion. For California customers we will only use CARB approved catalytic converters. All exhaust systems are built using mandrel bent stainless steel tubing, with high quality catalytic converters and muffler. We only use OEM oxygen sensors.
**We do not reuse any of the factory 3.8L exhaust components.**
Many customers are not fond of the idea of having to lift or re-lift their Jeep just to do a Hemi conversion; because of this we have developed a remote mount oil filter kit. Not only does this kit allow you to run with little or no lift but it also increases oil capacity and improves access to the filter for easy oil changes. We use all reusable aluminum fittings with like sized hoses that way should you ever rupture a hose it is easily repaired at minimal cost. Both the remote filter adapter and the remote oil filter mount are made of billet aluminum, black anodized, and have 1/2" NPT ports which are plenty large enough to keep even the big Hemi’s well lubricated.
All Suspension Systems can be accommodated long arm, short arm, mid arm, Teraflex to Old Man Emu we have never had a suspension system not be compatible with our conversion. Even if you have a custom reverse triangulated 4 link we can make our conversion work.
This could be one of the single greatest complaints/issues about a Hemi conversion; however, we have taken multiple steps to ensure that this is never an issue with a Burnsville conversion. To better understand why some vehicles have cooling issues you need to think of air passing through a radiator like water running in a river, it will always take the path of least resistance. You not only need to focus the air through the radiator but also need to allow it to pass easily out the back side. In order to maintain this “free flow” of air we position the motor 1” further back and lower than our competitors. Careful consideration is taken when removing the front core from the vehicle to ensure that the factory air dams remain intact, and are reused with the new radiator. These dams keep the air focused through the radiator to allow maximum cooling potential. In addition to maintaining proper air flow we also have an exclusive radiator built by Griffin that has the most efficient core on the market. This radiator cools 30 percent better than the competition.
If you plan on operating your Jeep in extreme temperatures or altitudes we have two additional heavy duty cooling options. Our truck motor conversions utilize the factory Dodge truck engine driven fan. A mechanical fan will always pull more air through the radiator than an electric fan of comparable size. Also, we can mount a 12 inch 2,500 CFM Spal pusher style fan on the front side of the radiator to help move air in low speed conditions. These two options combined will allow you to operate you Hemi powered Jeep in some of the harshest environments.
**The pusher fan can be added to any existing conversion.**
A typical Hemi install will take 2-3 weeks. We use this time to not only complete the conversion but to also have adequate time with the vehicle for testing. After a conversion is completed we test drive the Jeep to ensure the conversion is at peak performance, this not only includes the motor but also all interior functions as well i.e. cruise control, heated seats, A/C, power outlet, everything is checked for proper operation. Our testing phase will take your Jeep through stop and go traffic, highway driving, and dirt roads. We do this to literally shake out any loose wires or hoses that could cause you issues after the vehicle is returned. Along with looking for issues related to the conversion we also look for any other issues that the vehicle may have so we can provide recommendations so you can get them fixed.
Only at BOR do you get unparalleled attention to detail in every stage of the conversion process. Every conversion goes through a checklist while being completed. All welding is done by certified experts. Wire harness and hose routing is carefully done with everything properly tied in place. Any components that are close to a heat source are wrapped with protective shielding. All finished Hemi conversions are driven for a minimum of 100 miles to guarantee no problems.
BOR has the best customer service in the industry. All questions or problems are handled quickly and immediately, day, night or even on weekends. If you are oversees we can work with you though e-mail or arrange times to speak by phone even if it is in the middle of the night. We have a 3 year 36000 mile warranty that we take very seriously. If you are spending more than $20,000 on an upgrade to your Jeep, don’t you want to make sure you will be taken care of? Check around on the web and you will see that BOR is the trusted place to go. Please contact us so we can have the opportunity to earn your business.
Many of our competitors believe there is only one way to build a Jeep and that is their way. Ask them if they can build a sealed air box to work with an ARB snorkel kit, the answer will be no. The last thing we will say is no because we recognize that we may not be your first stop in the long path to building your perfect Jeep, so we push ourselves to develop solutions for your individual Jeep. Skid plates are no problem, along with long range fuel tanks, larger axles, hydraulic steering assist, custom suspensions, under hood compressors/welders, or whatever else you may have installed. We enjoy a good challenge so just ask.
