In OZ to do a Hemi conversion will cost around 30,000K which is ridicolus and hardly any local expertise on Hemi for tunning or parts.
LS is the best option but unfortunately not good for JKs currently bec of the electrics and computer.

Yeah, Hemi might be good but too expensive and oddball for parts in Oz, it's bad enough just owning a Jeep

And does a JK need a 5.7 or 7 litre? I doubt it a good 5 litre would be plenty of grunt, going big means you can no longer use standard transmission, axles or CV's. The little 3.8 isn't that bad once it loosens up a bit of course a few more cubes would be nice and the sound of a sweet V8, but not all of us want that many horses to play with. I have no desire to bend my chassis into a pretzel.

Spending an extra $5k rebuilding and moding a LS1/2 with some smick parts maybe even a supercharger to suit a 4WD application instead of freight and import duties on a Hemi would probably produce similar results anyway being easier to get approved/insured and friendlier on the driveline.
