    Default which v6 to buy...

    ok, so im leaning towards a volvo v6 at the moment, for 2 main reasons... ease of conversion and price.

    i have found a reliable source for a mpfi 2.8 v6, readily available to me, not sure what year model... will it be the same fit as the earlier prv's?

    thats pretty much it.. was sort of hoping for a 24 valve v6, but hard to source one of those...

    any opinions/ideas, let me know

    cheers all

    Yes. Does it come with the computer. I don't think these engines have a distributor. The coil packs are fired by the computer. Ok if you are running the standard computer or using an aftermarket fuel and ignition computer.
