hell no. the 4.2 is bascially the same exact motor and you don't have to change the fuel system, computer harness, computer, transmission, rear end, k-member, do i need to keep going?

So it's essentially plug and play.... hmmm. Are we talking noticeable differences? Or is this something that will only be seen/heard/felt at the track when millimeters count?

well it is worth about 12 hp, and about 25-30 more tq but most people through a cam in there and port and polish everything before they put it back in so it is usually more. 4.2-> bigger displacement = more power.

Any of you lowered guys have a problem with your drivers front tire rubbing the harness under the fender?

I found the location of my problem, a short due to a rubbed through wire. It was obvious it had been repaired several times, and poorly.

Has anyone tucked it? If I tuck it in or above the unibody I'll have to lengthen it. It looks like I might be able to route it inside the engine bay, but it's a tight squeeze with the hydroboost lines.

Quick question guys are the hi/low hid kits supposed to have halogens for high beams? I just got a 10k kit with high and low and when I turn the brights on it looks like halogens

Is it safe to replace just the front Struts and not the Rear Shocks? Or Vice-Versa?

I have a Leaky front shock.

Which means suspension work..

Which means.. Most likely. Lowering, I Hope.

you can replace either front or back and one side if you wanted.

might as well upgrade both fronts if you want to lower it. rears wont need to be replaced right away.
