200 I6 Vs. 300 I6

I'm torn between keeping my 200 (120hp/190 lb/ft ) OR swapping it out for a 300 (170hp/ 283 lb/ft). What do you think? Would I need to convert from four lugs to five lugs? And lastly will it even fit?


(sorry for the questions)
Thx

Build the 200 to make more power. Its like when people swap a v8 into a v6 camaro, it ends up being a lot more work than you are willing to do.

If it is for the Falcon, go with the 250. The 300 is a long stroke engine, with lots of torque.
