I've got nothing to add that hasn't already been said. I think RWD will be more fun to drive like a pissed off teenager and steer via throttle, but AWB will have a nice unique flavor too it and will perform better for what you have planned if you set it up right. Still planning to use the TJ frame you got from me?

If I build some outside the frame headers, then I don't have to worry about packaging them past the front driveshaft. I haven't found any outside the frame headers for CJs with LSx motors, except the ones from AA, which are smaller tubes than I want, and aren't for pre-72 CJs...
I've got a set of Speedway DIY header parts for an LS motor if you want it. Flanges, various 1.75" mandrel bent primary pieces, collectors. I bought it off Bryce 3 or 4 years ago and never used it.
