Crank sensor.... I totally missed that, Thank you!

So I use my 96 short block and hopefully find an XFI transmition for the higher gear ratio. XFI cam (or equivalent eco grind cam). Any differences in the heads?

What about the pistons? I have heard that the XFIs use different (2 ring) pistons. Any real difference there or is it just reduced internal friction from fewer rings?

I havent run a compression check yet as I was expecting to use the engine as a core for a rebuild XFI motor. but that crank sensor changes things! ill have to check the engines compression.

Thanks for all the help! Talking with someone in the know really smooths things out!
