Yup! I picked up the 4.0 tonight and it is sitting in my pickup bed outside! I am already in love with this thing! It has cast valvecovers instead of plastic and has a nice intake on it. The guy that I bought it from said that he could port and polish the heads on it when I get em off too!

I am going to be busy tearing this bad chicken down and seeing what I can do to tweak out some HP on her!

The cam holder...bought one from Matco today! I am going to be removing the cam though so it isn't really going to matter. I know that I will have to retime the geartrain anyway so it was really a waste of money lol It really isn't that hard to retime them anyway though. Just have to read the manual and it lays it out almost step by step.

I am planning on this being a long term project engine. Beefing the bottom end, headwork, find someone to grind some cams for it, N20, and maybe even an SC if they will ever get one going lol

Well, Head gaskets are 200 bux...so I am going to have some custom copper gaskets made...which I am told is going to be cheaper than fel pro's lol

And I already have the new EGR for it. I will begin teardown later this week...too busy to tinker right now hehe
