Interesting, Not that I'm supporting the 3.0, but wouldn't the pairing of a cast iron block w/ and Aluminum head lead to more head gasket problems? I mean those two metals have different properties / rates for expansion and contraction.... just a question.

So we've established that the stock 4.0 is faster (shoulda been a no-brainer)... but which engine is more durable?

earlier 3L have had Head gasket issues but some 3L are bullet proof, both engines are really good but the 4L is more versatile

they are both durable. i wouldn't worry about the motor on either going out anytime soon however. 5R44 VS 5R55 IS alot more durable.
