BLHDE'S 5.0 Rebuild/Swap

I have had my explorer donor for awhile now. Finally decide to get the engine out and start to tear it down.

The plan is to check the bearings and rebuild if it seems to have to much wear. With 130k on the clock of this 5.0 i doubt it will need much if it was taken care of. A cam upgrade, homebrew porting, headers, custom tune, and shift kit for the trans. Maybe a rebuild if room in the budget.

A refresher for those that missed my first thread, hell IDK where it went.

As received.

The 5.0 is finally out.

99 x-cab 4x4 4.0l auto
mods, cranked t-bars, silencer delete, k&n drop in, Rebuilt trans ,Trans Go stage 3 shift kit, 3200stall Fuddle Racing Torque Converter,
VANIR 63mm TB, Roush split rear exit exhuast, E-Fan, JBA Headers
Auto up/down both windows, OHC, EATC (soon to be modded)
