Chapter 5: Engine Prep
After all of the modifications performed on this truck (full rollcage, custom seats, new rubber and rims, etc.), it’s appropriate that it was given a name other than the one with which it started its life.
The Zone crew took things a step further by yanking out the old engine, a 4.0L I6 with more than 200,000 miles, and prepping a 4.6L Golen Stroker to replace it. Output jumped from 177 horsepower and 224 pound-feet to 270 and 320, respectively.
