Mexico VAM 282 I6 - still works with 4.0 head?
I recently moved to Mexico City, where I'm discovering that many Mexican AMCs (VAMs) and Jeeps came with a Mexico-specific VAM deriviative of the old I6 - a 282 cu. in. (4.6-liter). I instantly started wondering if you could slap a 4.0 head on for some extra horsepower as you can do on the 258 (4.2).
Any ideas? And when people do the 4.0 head swap, does that also make it easier to bring over the whole 4.0 FI setup?
