i perfectly get what your saying, your aginst the 3.0 due to the lack of power. now i could sit here til kingdom come listening to you make puns along with half the people on this forum about how ****ty the 30 is. but i ain't here for that, as i see it you think i am trying to make a high performance 30, your not gettin the point bud, i'm trying to work out the kinks ford didn't when makin the motor. maybe even better gas mileage. no not an overhaul, not a ****ing supercharger but just a few, yes that is in the relm of less than 10, mods or so to a NEW stock 3.0 to make a, guess what......... make a good motor better. not a racer, not a wheelin rig, but a better built, more sturdy motor. now will someone who has something other than performance on their mind please chime in to suggest their opinion, i.e. maybe a solution to the cam synchro problem they had, or maybe a solution to the antifreeze leaking problem, even tho i know all motors will wear and tear so i know this will happen. but i'll even be open to minor wiring fixes and or kits that can save money down the road.
