Hey All

Whats going on everybody?

Got a '86 that eventually will get a small block, still in the planing stages.That and I have to get it to my house first, it's siting out in the woods at my dads place for now...

So if, when I get around to it I'll have plenty of questions, but for now in the mean time I'll probably just search and lurk around for a bit.

Tks fellas

Yeah, I know the 5.0 is "played out" but I figure what the hey. lol

All kidding aside whats the avg mpg these things get? I know allot depends on how it's set up but just serious b/c it will probably be a dd once I get it finished.

Meh, it isnt played out in the least - msot of the peopel on here talk about it all the time, but very few actually do the swap - its a perfectly reasonable swap, better MPG's, more power, more torque.. and can be accomplished ina weekend with a few guys and some good knowledge and planning...

Everyone shoudl want a 5.0 swap, no matter how "played out" it may seem

I kinda had that feeling after the "460" thread, sorry just had to run my "fingers" there for a bit.
