that is actuealy fairly comen to go to a 4.2 or 4.3 stroker. so u arnt gana be throwing all that may people for a lope.
also if u r doing thisswap for the love of god get some beter intke the stock one sucks.
as well as some head and valve train work.
I wanted to do that too but too much time and money. instead I am just modding my current motor. someone else Help!!
wanted to do what
either super six's box intake or a windstar swap
the box upper is best for f/i apps and the 96-98 windstar isen't a bad swap but there r better options out there.
but it definetaly has it's strong points.
