I would be torn on what Ford motor to transplant.
Thinking if all out performance was the goal, the DOHC 5.4L GT/GT-500 is still their top dog.
I parked next to a guy at the Package-Depot yesterday, and he had a brand new (2000 miles) Raptor with the 6.2L (he fessed when I asked him which engine he had). He said that he traded in his Cherokee SRT8 for this truck, and also drives a Vette (he's a retired something-or-another and now sells Amsoil)... Anyhow, he said the 6.2 is "ok" but nothing much compared to the other cars he drives, or drove (like his Cherokee). He said it was (props to you Mr Creosote) too heavy to be fast. I suggested he throw some street-tires on her & give her a go... I also asked him if he's used it for what it was intended for (off-road)... he said he parked on his buddies gravel driveway the other day :heh:
Nope - I like my Tundra better
A better Raptor. Lighter, cheaper.
