My mistake? Dude, this car was free. How do you call that a mistake? It has 110K miles on it and I've had no other problems aside from this one, albeit it is a major one....
All I need to do is get another 25k-30k miles out of it until I can get a new truck.
I guess I'll start hitting up the junkyards around me to see what they have as well. I've got no problems doing all of the work myself, I just need to find a budget short block to work with.
Will the 3.2 or 3.5 short block match up to the same heads/intake, etc? Use the same cams? Exhaust? Wiring? I don't think so, based off of the other thread that I saw. This is the headache that I'd like to avoid.
If this was a 5.0 Mustang, it'd be fixed for a few hundred! I've been racing mustangs for years, too bad this one isn't as easy and cheap...
Thanks for the replies. If anyone knows of a place anywhere for a good deal, I don't mind shipping.
Oh, btw, I'm in Austin, TX.
