Anyone know what turbo is in the kit? Wheel measurements?

Assuming you meant 68 mph. Approximately 2150 rpm's at 68.

I have an '05 LJ auto. Any need to rebuild the transmission before installing the Banks kit? My transmission currently works fine but I am thinking a rebuild might be wise before I rely on it to handle the increased hp and torque.

No reason to fix something that's not broke

Welcome! ^^ What Don said ^^

My engine is boosted (supercharger) - doubled the rear wheel HP and the 42RLE auto tranny is just fine. I would change the transmission filter and fluid of course, you have to drop the pan but it's not that much work (unless you are laying on your back.)

A trans cooler would be a good idea. 3/4 cooked in mine so I will be stepping up my cooler size.

From my experience, adding HP / Torque via turbo or supercharger require both cooling and exhaust upgrades too.

I added a Kenne Bell supercharger to our 2003 Rubicon 12 years / 12,000 miles ago and its worked great... probably because I also upgraded the cooling system:

*AEV Heat Reduction Hood
*Mopar 7 blade fan
*Flow Kooler high flow water pump
*Turbo City high flow thermostat housing

... and the exhaust:

*Banks TorqueTube exhaust header
*Borla catback exhaust & muffler (Banks Monster Exhaust preferable now)

This works rock crawling AND on the highway. Others who've installed turbos or superchargers haven't been so fortunate...

Wow! If you are spending $5,500 for a V8 swap I want to be your friend. Been there, did that.
