    Short answer - No.

    With many, housands of dollars, lots of custom parts, and many, MANY hours of labor, sure.

    Unfortunately, ^^that's^^ true. There are some performance parts for the 4.5/4.9 engines, but they're not designed to be used in these cars. Think hot rod/sand rail use.

    He changed waterpump. For leak? Overheating? Loosing coolant? Now motor has been run and it seems it has major internal issue. Was it bad to begin with or did botched repair cause damage? Poor coolant circulation can lead to localized overheating and headgasket issues. On any motor.

    it was replaced because it seized and threw the belt.the motor has been pulled and swapped the original motor i inspected today it looks great surprisingly time to stop buying time with it though i just wanted to know if i could do anything to help it run better and more efficient besides fluid checks and regular maintenance
