Still looking at the Nissan for the stroked small block. The Xterra is different in that the front crossmember is actually the radiator support. The engine mounts are attached to the frame without a crossmember, allowing for a lower engine mount. I'm going to look up the available space an let you guys know.
I just rebuilt the 400 in the F250, so no plans to change that anytime soon. When I do, it will get a built 460. Or another TMeyer 400.
