    Different VIN# swap question ?

    My Mazda b4000 is a 2009 V6 4.0 SOHC with the 8th digit “E” I have a local scrap yard saying that a V6 4.0 SOHC with the 8th digit “X” will go right in after bolting my injections on ..Is this correct or is there something else I will have to do ?

    2008 b4000 V6 4.0 timing question.

    I don’t 100% believe the low oil story because everything else is in such good shape on this truck ..I thought that if the timing chain snapped it wouldn’t cause problems with the values ?
