The 4.3L V6 is more than adequate for what the a fullsize truck needs to be able to do. What uneducated consumers need to realize is that the 4.3L is identical to a 350ci V8 but with 2 less cylinders. In other words, the bore, stroke, and compression are the same. The the V6 has about 20 less horse power than the V8 but it gets twice the gas mileage. The 4.3L V6 is litterally the most efficient motor of its time in all aspects. Combined with a the manual transmission I'm sure you will be satisfied with its performance.
