Yeah exactly.. you will be able to get the 260+ out of it.Traveler said:I'd guess it'd give you the 260 because you won't have the "restrictive exhaust, mechanical fan, tune etc.".
I'm guessing that if you're going to go to the trouble and expense of putting in a new motor, you might as well put in true duals, and get a good tune.
Really? Just how much?95xbird said:The explorer PI swap is easy and I think it is alot of bang for the buck.As long as you get the tune your golden.Even though the DOHC has more power it is also much heavier than the Alluminum PI.
Well I guess the new Explores even have a better motor now over the Aviators, with the 3v. Someone correct me if im wrong but a 3v motor is better than the 4v's? Main reason being the VCT.awdRocks said:and its 239hp due to restrictive exhaust, mechanical fan, tune etc. Aviators have the DOHC 4.6 aluminum block so jealous of that motor!!!
You are looking at a 20hp difference between the two motors.And for the extra cost of modding I couldn't go with the DOHC.But my goal is to have another bird and install a DOHC in the future,This way I'll have both.GreenBird said:Really? Just how much?
Droping a whole complete PI motor in a bird is alot less hassle and can be some times cheaper.Beside's that you can keep compression down with doing the whole swap so that way you can force feed the motor later.sniper77 said:why do people go through the trouble of doing a pi explorer motor swap instead of just a pi head swap? won't that do the same thing and be easier?
