#7 of 7 2004 to 2009 5 cyl upgrade
Jun 05, 2009 (12:40 pm)
Does anyone have any information about potential problems that might be encountered upgrading to a 2009 engine in a 2004 2wd 5mt 3.5L? I would hope to reuse the entire original exhaust system (may need to match exhaust ports), ECM, and other original external parts except for the alternator. This is a California emissions truck so it must look & function as original.
My truck has the original cylinder head (still OK), 112,000 miles, & is used for a lot of towing. The cylinder head issue keeps me nervous and needs to be resolved. I keep my vehicles until they are totally used up; my old Suburban had 460,000 hard miles.
