I am seriously considering building a stroker 4.0 to drop in in the future.
Finally got to the "dirty dozen" Yesterday and pulled and cleaned the grounds, pcm, every connection I could get apart under the hood. Then applied dialectic grease to all of them. Man what a chore but found both battery cable connection s at the terminals were bad and replaced them. When I was done, wow what a difference. The alarm system perked up and was louder and in general I could just feel she responded better. She still has a bit of a slight miss every now and then and kinda drops out just for a fraction of a second at idle in gear. Overall though for 219k she runs darn good.
