Question 4.2L vs. 3.8L?

I was wondering what the differences between the 4.2L and the 3.8L V6's (blocks, heads, etc)? Also are any parts interchangable between the two?

This has been covered soooo many times. Check previous threads about this issue. I know for fact there are at least 2 that are still around.

The only other post about the 3.8 I could find didn't have any information either. You told that guy the same crap you told me. Sorry to bother you. Is there anyone else who might be willing to share a little information on this matter?

Guys, I just did some housecleaning in this thread.
I expect the guidelines to be followed, in particular:

"Ford Truck Enthusiasts (FTE) is a Family Friendly web site. Do not post mean-spirited, badgering, foul language, sexually explicit, racial epithets, derogatory or defamatory content, in any form."

Remember, there are new visitors and folks finding FTE every day. I expect those of us who are regulars and/or "old timers" to display a courteous and helpful disposition.
Use YOUR knowledge to help guide someone to the answer. if they need more help, try to help. But no bad-mouthing.
I don't expect group hugs, but I do expect courtesy and assistance to all users; old and new.

Thanks, and sorry I didn't catch this sooner.

OBTW...nobody has been banned or locked out. Let's all work to keep it that way.
