Wondering if the engine is exactly the same between the 2002 and 2008 models? I hear that the inlet manifold is different.. I am thinking of buying a low km 2008 model 4.8 and fit it into 2002 model. I was told by wrecker that the 2002 and 2008 engine block and head are idential..

can you confirm?

Im not sure but I do know that in about 2004ish they reduced the 4.8 power a wee bit and knocked about 50nm from it. Probably via the computer tho.

yeh I read the same, that the first 4.8's were 185kw and 420Nm but the later ones from say '05' or there a bouts when auto was the only option were 180kw and 400Nm, but the motors as far as I'm aware are the same

Yeah I hear the same... do you think the less power was tuned by the computer not the engine itself due to the emission limits?
