I luv my '02 truck, but no use for the 4.7. Mine decided to blow a couple of holes in the front two drivers side pistons and then broke the timing chain tensioner and so on. So if anybody knows where to get a real good deal on another 4.7 long block (because apparently without a major expense that is the engine I need to use), please let me know. Preferably one with the oil passage ways already modified to improve the oil flow issue. Oh, and when it was running - the mileage sucked. Best I ever got was around 14mpg on the highway with no load.
