I blew the motor in my 1997:(. I got a second gen 1998 motor thrown in and now the car is slower. Is there a difference between the two motors?? If I put on my first gen head would that help out??? Are there any things I can do to pep this beast up. BTW I have I/H/E.

97 and 98 should be identical ...same HP ratings ...Different cam profile may be your problem ... Swap the cams out and you should be back to the 97 specs...Or just get a set of JWT cams !!

if you use all your 94 injection it should feel exactly the same ...

im gonna go with the 01 engine with 1000 miles instead. its only 300 bucks more. i was reading up about the 00 and up engines and theyve been reworked internally to run smoother and more reliable. mine was already reliable but it wasnt smooth. i should be picking up the engine this week.
