    I have got a 2006 with the 4.0L of course...I want to do the stroker swap...I already know that a 4.2L replacement(which is a 4.0L stroker) came n the F-150 pickup but what other vehicles do they come n? Also...If it came n something else, does it have the heads I want to b on it for porting and polishing? I am having trouble locating one to build...

    I believe you can get close to a 4.5 stroker from SSM for your car, I havent heard of a 4.2 swap rom an F150 on the 4.0 It is usually from the 3.8 since they share the same block.

    I think that is true for the ones your talking about which I believe is earlier models than mine...The v6 shops are building them but mine has the aluminum block and all I can find are the cast iron blocks to earlier year models...my 06', if I'm not mistaken, has the newer block and so far the only replacement was the 4.2L only available n the fleet trucks which makes it more rare and harder to find...I wonder if the later model S197's v6 would work?? I think it would b 2012 to 2014??? Before ecoboost???

    I don't believe there was ever an aluminum block 4.0 engine, and I can say for certain that there was never a production Essex v6 with an aluminum block.

    Your 4.0 is ohc, the 4.2 is ohv. Completely different engines. Never heard off a stroker crank for the 4.0 but I'm sure one could be made. Never heard of an aluminum 4.0 block either. Might want to double check that.

    There is no such thing as a Ford Modular V6. I am well aware that the 24-valve V8 in S197 mustangs use an aluminum block, but the 4.0 Cologne engine uses a cast iron block... I don't know what you are looking for. The v6 from 94-04 is a totally different animal than the 4.0 that started being used in 2005

    The Ford modular V8 has used both cast iron and aluminum blocks. It's also had 2, 3, and 4 valve cylinder heads. There's also a V10 used in trucks that is part of the modular family. The newest Coyote V8s also share a lineage with the former modular engines.

    The only 4.5 v6 I know of is a ford racing motor and it's ohv pushrod motor. Around $20k to do one right.

    They don't make a stroker kit for that motor. There is a turbo kit which will make it feel like a 6 liter engine lol.
