4.0 liter engine replacement help needed.

I need a new engine soon( rings are goin.) really want to put in one of those 4.6 liter stroked out jobs. But I think money wise I am gonna have to get another 4 liter. Can I put something newer in there? what are the compatibility issues? what can I put in there? I am sure i can find something low mileage from a wreck cheaper than havin to buy a crate deal for two g's. What do you guys think?

cheapest option is find a used engine from bone yard, reasonable miles for around 600 bux. you can build a stroker for fairly cheap, under 2g. you can spend much more if you want, but to go cheap just get 258 crank and rods, build the motor normal, and use the right injectors, and spark plugs, and run premium fuel and you should be fine.

It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
