new to the V8 world, and have read through the many posts.
But I would still like an opinion. And any useful information.
If the fiancee were to let me spend our house money on this would it be a good deal, and what else would i possibly need for the rest of the swap?
1991 5.0L engine runs excellent (no smoke or oil consumption)
Engine has a fresh tune up and oil change consisting of: Ford racing plug wires,Mobile one filter and oil, ford racing heavy duty cap and rotor, plugs.
The engine has the following modifications: Kirban adjustable fuel regulator, Auto meter fuel pressure gauge, Ford racing silicon hose set, 70MM throttle body and EGR spacer, UPR smog pump delete kit, Mac headers, BBK power pulley's, Brand new motor mounts, and a recent 140 amp alternator.
The trannny is the matching T-5 from the car (1991) Has a steel input shaft, hurst shifter, and a SPEC stage II clutch with stock flywheel (one race season on clutch)
I also have the complete fuel injection harness, minus computer.
If someone wants this all together I will throw in the Mac offroad X pipe with O2 sensors, BBK cold air intake, and ford racing lightweight starter with harness.
If you only want individual parts I want:
$450 for the engine (minus starter, alternator, and hoses)
$450 for tranny without clutch
$100 bux for clutch and flywheel
$75 for off road X pipe and cold air intake
$50 bux for lightweight starter and harness
This is all the info i have on this right now, but what are your thoughts opinions, suggestions, and anything else that can help me to convince the fiancee to spend that much on the 5.0 if it will work for my application.
Thanks in advance
