    Also OP it isnt far out of the realm of reality to travel a bit for a cheaper price. I know subies command a premium up north do to the weather but down here they go for cheap. You will likely end up on top in that case..

    I can respect that.
    Haha naw man I'm a sucker for the 4.6s. Not the NPI ones though. It will most definitely turn into another car to be modded and whatnot, I'm fine with that. I hear what you're saying, I respect your input. I just cannot do fwd, never ever lol.

    For me it wouldn't be. All the rangers and s10s over here are beat to shit. And we do contracting, so a truck would turn into a work pig which is the last thing I want. I'd like a fun daily, S10s and Rangers don't really scream fun lol. They're solid and extremely reliable, but eh. Idk. And if I were to get a truck, it would have to be a 4x4 for the winter.

    TIL, oh wait, just remembered why I don't frequent this pounding of the chest fest.

    Op asks question, not one answer.

    To answer your question: leave this place and seek the answer and not narcissistic reviews of why their choices and impositions are better for you.

    I know the higher mile ones start to have leaky valve seals and will smoke some, as mine does some with 130k on it. Runs like a top tho. I'm also pretty new to the mod motors but I think you should be good. Water pump changes are so much easier than the pushrods, not having to scrap all those old gaskets off, just a nice rubber o ring. I think you will be good to go

    Maybe you should? I read ever one. Help me understand what made you think I didn't, and to call a factual representation of people projecting their wisdom where it wasn't requested, nonsense?

    This is all the op needed.

    If he were to use the search function, or go to the correct engine section the information is already there.


    People were projecting their ideas where "it wasn't asked" because the OP frequently comes up "great ideas" if you will. Being as this is the garage and the OP was written in a manner that it was also asking for opinions... its all fair game. It it was posted in the engine section simply asking what common issues were, that would be a different story with different results.


    Thank you.

    Great ideas? Get off your ****ing high horse dude. It's my money and my life, if I want to set it on fire I will. If it was posted in the right section. Give me a break.

    And FYI, I never once asked for an opinion on a 99-04 as a daily. You opinionated ****. Every thread I see you write oh not my style, not a fan. Who cares, it's not your car.

    Ive requested to no longer be in the presence of those such as in this thread and yourself. Was told by Chris I cannot, and he hoped the culture would shift to be less condescending and more welcoming. Glad to see you're not part of that change.

    Read above, OP supported my sentiments. You're out of line.

    whats out of line is your comments about why you don't frequent the forum. I don't think Joey asked you for that opinion and I'm sure its certainly not welcomed by non contributing members

    Not sure who Joey is but if that's the OP he supported my comment up above. He didn't ask for opinions, he asked for advice on things to look for. My comments are my experience and rather than point to the symptom, analyze the problems laid out in this very thread as to why myself and many others don't frequent this forum. Guy asks for x, you give him y. Explain to me why.

    [MENTION=17616]the5.ohh[/MENTION] sorry to touch a nerve earlier, here's the tread you want http://www.sn95forums.com/showthread.php?60029-Common-4-6L-V8-2V-Problems

    I did create a general sn95 problem thread too, that may be helpful.

    http://www.sn95forums.com/showthread.php?60032-Common-SN95-Problems

    [MENTION=12486]Sinned83[/MENTION] I think that's good now.
    [MENTION=19214]fiveohwblow[/MENTION] if you have an issue with a member, click on their name, view profile. On the left hand side you can add then to the ignore list.
    By continuing the rant about the forum, you arent really improving things


    Now can we get back on topic. What else do you want to know Joe?

    Thank you Richard for being one of a couple who answered OP's question and being a level head. I've never had a problem with Dennis before and not sure why he got so defensive. Maybe I called his home ugly. Idk. Either way, using this as an example of my frustrations should serve as a reminder to those who care to improve the site is all.

    Yeah anymore questions let us know.. I did have a 2000gt for 2 years.... I bought it at 85k.. In the 15k I had it it only need COP's, however at 105k I was driving down the highway and the oil pressure went and it spun a rod. I was just cruising on the highway too.
