So, i'm seeing the 3.5 and the 3.9 have same spec journal size and rod lengths. many sizes are comparable to the 3.4L. It appears the difference between the 3.5 and the 3.9 is crank and bore. Piston pins are comparable. Anyone ever look into some of these components before? If nothing else, this might be a way to upgrade a 3.5 with stroke of 3.9 to give better torque curve, even if you don't bore an engine out..
However for conversation wise... Looks like in order to use the 3.9 or 3.5L cranks i would have to turn down the crank journal 4mm to use in LQ1.. can this be done? Who does this type of stuff? just randomly thinking...
for your reading pleasure
PS, i know most of the performance stuff is no longer available for the LQ1...
I'm trying to do crash course on learning with my LQ1..
Are th 96 heads worth grabbing and upgrading? what else is worth grabbing or doing if i can still find remnants? thanks all.
