4.7 Time for a rebuild
 
Hello all.

Ok a little back ground I have a 2003 4.7L 4x4 that's got 178K miles on it. It's just blown a head gasket. after a days worth of driving I need to add about a quart of water to it. To make s short story long. I am needing options on rebuilding this bad boy. I figure if I have to open it up I might as well freshen the lower end as well as the upper. Now the question. Where would you all if you pro's where doing this get your parts and what options would you look at. I would like to get some more horses out of it but it needs to also be a daily driver of sorts. Any ideas and places to point me would be great. I mean even manuals and such. If you know of a good crate motor I would not be opposed to looking at one of those also.

Thanks

Contact Nick at airram.com. He is an expert on the 4.7L. He also sells many performance(and replacement) engine parts.

I am looking to replace or rebuild my 03' 4.7 aswell 157k. I was wondering what years of the 4.7 are direct swap in compatable. The worn lifters are just clacking too damn loud.

It might be your valve lash caps that are getting loose as I don't believe 4.7's have lifters.

Well, I didn't see any when I replaced my cams on my old 4.7L.

Try to grab a set of H.O. camshafts if you do rebuild if they are still available. I got them for about $60.00 from the dealer back in the day and it was good for about 15hp and 25lbft.

like snrusnak said can find what most of what you need from nick he's good cuz you can find it all in one place. and yes the 4.7 doesn't have lifter it has lash adjusters its an overhead cam and you can find them there also.
