I have a 97 with a 5.2 in it, but at work, I have a newer one, 4.7 and it SCREWS compared to mine.

Is that normal?

I'm thinking about doing a tuneup on mine and because mine shifts so low, I'm going to adjust the shift linkage to let it go a tad higher in shifting...

BUT that 4.7 is incredible...damn...i'm jealous...

Any thoughts???

Thanks,
Johnny

The 4.7 is a higher revving engine then the 5.2 and generates more HP. Late this year a new 4.7 will be ready that generates even more HP.

The 4.7 is a kickass engine. I'd choose it over the 5.2 or 5.9 anyday. The new 4.7 will be pushin 260 HP and 310 tq. The 2001 Motorsports Ed. pushes 271 HP and 310+ tq. Gotta love it!
