Default 3.8 heads on 4.0 block

I heard that if you put 3.8 heads on a 4.0 block it gives you more hp is this true?

he needs to do his research. Cause as far as I know. a 4.0 has a OHC. And a 3.8 is pushrod. So its not possible. Just based on that aspect alone.

Fail.

OHC vs. Pushrod motor, I don't see how that goes together.

I'd say he got the idea from chevrolets...

I've heard you can put 305 heads on a 350 to increase compression ratio. And increase the N/A hp..
But hes comparing two completely different engines. So yeah. He got owned.
