Not even going to mention what year? Well. Nitro-oxide on a blown 454 chevy should do ya then. Oh ya, fuel injected.


Sorry, couldn't resist, but going to need more info.

Rebuild the 4.0 to a 4.6 stroker. Way more usable torque and power.

If it's a 1990 with the original engine it's not a 4.0. Also, where are you located? No every swap is legal every where.

None of us enjoy a guessing game.

so, do you have a 4.0 swapped in or do you have the original 4.2? big difference on any mods to the motor.
