Go with the 3.9. You can fit it in real easy and it is lighter, plus they are easier to come by. There are a decent amount of people that have done it actually.

what about the 4.75L I4 Isuzu 4HE1 Motor in the NPR Box trucks, my friend and I are marine mechanics and where putting 2 of these in his 28' Bertram. The Motors seem really HD, but there a little exspensive, and hard to get cheap. But thier really stout, they weigh in at around 900lbs tho
