thats tough....lol......advantages of dropping the 5.0 would be the access to parts.....they make anything and everything you could think of for this motor....than again I guess a built 4.0 would stand out in a crowd...I mean how many do you actually see out there that have some descent work done to them?

i say build the 4.0 into a monster, it will have more class than a 5.0, but if you put in a 5.0 build a stroker. what are you going to use it for?
