Motor choice?

I am still thinking about what motor I want to put in my Splash when my 4.0 goes out. I am either thinking or rebuilding my 4.0 and putting a Paxton supercharger on it with a T5 or building a 88 5.0 that I have a stroking it to a 347 stroker motor, what do you guys think?

If it's a street truck then the 347.

It's an off road truck the 4.0L with heads/cams/rods might be a decent choice.

4 Cylinder w/ Big turbo.

if you thinking of a 347, you might as well go all the way to a 408 stroker. its based off a 351W

go with the 4.0. with a little help, the sixer would put out just as much to the rear wheels without the fuss of converting the computer.
