Ford 4.6L vs 5.0L V8 swap
After doing numerous little things to my 4.0L I have decided that it is time to stop playing with an engine that was never intended to be a performance engine and swap something else in with a few more cylinders and a lot more potential. I am really interested in swapping in a newer modular Ford V8, but haven't been able to find any info on a swap. I know I can get an adapter to bolt a 5.0L to my AX15, but I think the 4.6L would be a more efficient motor and is probably lighter as well. Of course, the 4.6L Jeep stroker is another option, but as odd as it sounds I think the V8 would get better mileage due to A) it not having to work as hard and B) it being a newer more efficient engine. I am currently running 4.56 gears with 35" BFG All Terrains and the 4.0L has a header, full exhaust, TB spacer, MSD 6AL, Super Conductor wires and Blaster 3 coil and Bosch Platinum +4's.
