get the heads checked.

In fact, take it to the dealer and make sure the recalls are up to date.

Get the documentation on the engine.

and pick up some underdrivers . ..

what about with a engine swap? from a V6 232 ci to a V8 289 ci cuz i forgot to mention the new engine is a V8, not a V6.
a 289?

Once you swap angines like that, it's a custom situation - I couldn't diagnose anything, without looking at it physically.

is it carbed? Why a 289, when a 5.0L would be a better engine, all around?
