Thats why you build a 4v because they have COP covers and it would be less exposed to water, dirt etc... and they are faster and more badass

4vs are hard to find and harder for someone new to building motors aren't they?

Not really. Ive never built an engine before. Not gonna learn unless you try!! Only big difference is the heads, cams, timing. Other than that most modulars are all the same in most aspects.

Might have to look into it. My truck is probably going with a new lightning motor and a ported lightning sc when its time for a motor.

Or a 4v with an m122 pushing 20lbs of boost. Or a 4v with twins... a lightning supercharger is great but once you build a motor up with boost, youll always want more. Thats why im staying NA lol id love to have a lightning sc on my truck but I think a 4v swap will just make my truck even more unique and give me just enough power for what I need it to do.
