I have to say, even if it was free, I would not put a 3.5 in anything. You're going to do alot of work, and in the end, be completely dissatisfied with the resulting performance, be very lucky to sell the truck, not to mention probably taking a loss on it.

As Okie says, and I can attest to, having done many, it's more than a days work.

a 3.9 will say just that, on the top front of the plenum, cast right in, in big numerals "3.9" , whereas, as 3.5 won't have anything on the plenum
How about a 3.5 in a Series truck? That would be pretty cool!!!
