300 I6 Maverick?
i am considering putting a 300 in-line six in my 1974 Maverick and i want to know how hard are they to come by. I've done some minor research and i found that that it was discontinued in 96', what 96' vans/trucks could i find one in. I've also read that the 87'-96' 300's had fuel injection and 155hp. my main issue is if it will fit in my Maverick with out having to make major changes , the way i see it is that if a 302 can fit so can a 300 I6.
the reason for the 300I6 is that my older brother has a 73' Datsun 280Z with a fuel injected 6cyl way bigger than mine with 160hp. my goal is to be able to outrun or at least keep up with his 280Z with out putting a V8 in my car.
("just dropping in a V8 is the easy way out!")
*i am tired of hearing about V8's so please only give me info only about my idea
