So I'm getting around to rebuilding my montero. While I have a great rolling chassis, I will be on my 3rd engine (2.6) now. I'd really like to keep this one for a while as finding donor motors is getting hard in my parts.
So I'd like suggestions as to best rebuild tips/parts as I'm taking my newest donor motor down for a rebuild.
ARP studs? copper head gasket?? clearwater non jet head?
Let me know where to put my money.
it will be a stock 88 SWB 4banger to an auto tranny.
