Hey I have an 88 with the 2.9, I like it but I'm used to the 300 4.9L straight 6 in an F-250, so I was thinking about the swap to the 4.0L and swapping in the tranny too (or one with larger gearing, have absolutely no clue if that'd work) k so my question is about the 4.0L does it have any known problems? other than size is it a better more dependable engine than the 2.9? any feed back would be great thanks. oh and I'd also like to know if I can water proof my 2.9L. and if a snorkel would hurt anything. haha lots of questions :icon_confused:
