Sold my '98 2wd ext cab with 175k after I blew the transmission.Have a '99 4x4 Quad Cab now.Sitting at 260,000 mi and runs great.5.2 Magnum with a NV3500 5spd 3:55 Open diffs.Everything's stock except the addition of a HO Coil and 8mm wires.Averages 20mpg hwy and 13 city.I've owned vehicles with 318 v8 in them,about 12 different trucks and 2 cars,and just as an FYI for the guy that claims you cant get over 300hp on a 318 without strokin it,I've built three now over the years. 275hp,325hp,and 300hp respectively and only one of them was bored over stock at .30 over.If you match your valvetrain,intake and exhaust systems and put some thought into what you're doing 300 + hp is very do-able in a 318 for well under a 1,000.00 .With a tuned ECM you can even keep your stock Injection too.Just my two cents worth...
