Them Lil Red Truck needds a new engine. 228,000 and she's real tired!

Any suggestions? I'm near Chicago.... :help:
What year/make/model and engine type do you currently own? Are you looking to refresh what you already have, or are you contemplating a complete drivetrain swap for additional power?

I thought I could spell/ type better.....

Right now it's a 5.2 with snorkel (EBAY special) and a Flowmaster Catback. It has low compression on 4 and 6 along with a slight miss. Mechanic says it "probably" needs a valve job however, if I do that, it may blow out the bottom end do to age/ miles.

I checked into a Jasper, 5K installed. 3 yr/ 75K warranty on parts and labor. I'd like to do a few "enhancements" though (TB, cam, headers, PCM) and that invalidates the Jasper warranty (Along with any other I've been told) so I thought I'd check other options.

Any ideas?

I also would recommend talking to Dan Arcand - he has built quite a few blocks for Dodge Dakota/Durango owners - performance parts won't be an issue.

4 cyl 2.5l modifications?

i have been all the way up to page 12, and thought this would be the right thread to ask my question...
i have a 1991 kota, and not in it to run fast, but would like alittle more power...are there any modifications to add on this particular engine? it is a 4x2 and i do have it lifted 3" (body) and have 30" bfg's on it...
just keep maditory tune-ups or can i add that turbo from the chrysler labaron? will that help or just waisting my time and money?
any recommendations would be appreciated...thanks
