V8 3.6 Motor Mods
Anyone know whether a 4.2 liter V8 crank and rods (probably pistons, rings,
etc.) could be swapped into a 3.6 motor? Scott (PDQSHIP) and I thought it
could be done. I believe the bores are the same. Anyone done this or have a
good lead? Or would I be better off getting a shortblock (i.e. lower
end--used, of course) pricewise. Could I get by Exrude-honing the Intake
manifold and heads, or would this mod necessitate the 4.2 liter cams as well.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas (but not unsub*cribing) and Fresh Snow
for the Holidays. Happy Quattroing!
