WTF did i miss?
After your repeated attempts to brainwash us on old stuff it stuck to @Dirtman but the file must have been corrupted or something because he is wanting some little R/C looking thing, not a big ol’ boat.

My credo
A legend to the old man, a hero to the child...
Defend the honor of the carbed inline six!
Which inline 6?

If youre talking about the 258 in that eagle youre SOL. I dont have really any experance with those. Ive heard their good, torquey motors though. Very similar to the 4.0 (jeep)

My credo
Give 'yer balls a tug. Fight me.
Bloated brother of the 4.0. Can be converted to efi with a 4.0 head swap.

258 rods and crank in a 4.0 block is a 4.7 stroker with dis ignition and efi. Falls just short on hp and torque of a m90 blown 4.0.

Heavy and slow, but reliable as all hell. Refinements like better carb, headers, emissions delete, hei ignition make them quite powerful.
