So after learning all I could about the 4.2L V-6 in my dad's now "retired" Mercury mini-van--namely how it's based on the same block as the T-bird Supercharged 3.8, saw continual upgrades until '05, shares mountings with the Windsor V-8 and saw use in the F150--and being disappointed with the overall performance (fuel economy included) of the 2.5L/5-spd in our '99 B2500, I've come to a decision: Why swap in a V-8, when a good V-6 will do? My hopes with this is to slip-in a N/A '03-'05 4.2L, upgrade to a 8.8" axle (Obviously) with "higher" gears & locker and either keep the M5OD [F150] trans or (hopefully) go with a 6-spd... if there's one that'll bolt-up easily.

Any tips here? And keep in mind: I'm not impressed with the 3L V-6 or either 4L, so don't suggest them.

Thank you.
