Not even a V8 will fix your problems. You need GEARS big time. With
that V6 and a set of 4.88 or 5.13’s with those tires and you will be
amazed at the difference. Even a bigger motor would suck with stock
gears and 37’s and not ot mention strain on tranny too. It will run a
lot better with gears and V6 than a small block with current gears and
tranny will last longer too.
