Turn your 3.9L into a 4.9L stroker? COOL!

Found this guy while browsing around last night. Would probably take a bit of top-end work to take advantage of everything, and I don't think the guy handles the EFI side of things. But he has a magic formula of a 3.9L rover block, buick 300 crank, Chevy con-rods and Ford pistons to bump it up to 300 cubic inches. Probably would run less than a 4.6 swap too.

Would be interesting an engine to say the least.

And he's even in the USA!

"Besides, practical people don't visit this board. And they are boring". It doesn't have to make sense it is a dream my second choice would be a 572 chevy crate motor.

LOL, wow. A VW V10 diesel or a 572 chevy, either one would make a very one of the kind defender.
