Hello,

I'm new to the list and am seeking some help/info on my engine. I'm building
a 55 F100 and have acquired a 5.8L (351W) fuel injected engine from a 90
F250. The engine came from a salvage yard but supposedly has only 58,000
miles on it. It originally had a T5 manual but I am putting in a C6. What I
would like to know is what if any mod's can be made to this
engine/transmission? What changes are required (if any) to adapt engine to
the transmission? I am intending to build a daily driver but one that has
acceptable performance as well. The chassis is set up with a Volare front
end and a 9" rear.

Total novice attempting to obtain a dream.

Check this site out, a few years ago I cut open a fram,napa, wix,
motorcraft, and a purolater filter. When I opened the fram I got a little
mad, they should be embarrassed, every since I have only used NAPA or Wix.
Haven't wasted money on a fram since.

Interesting ... I didn't think the 5.8 ever came with a T5 behind it, unless
it was the world-class one from the 95 Cobra R, in which case you have one
hot motor already and shouldn't worry about modifying it ...

Likely it came with whatever the trucks were using for a tranny at the time.
If you hit the pages of Lightning folks you'll probably find some neat
tricks for them. I think there are upper and lower intakes available, along
with a host of ignition system upgrades, and some neat chips to make it run
a bit better ... the options are actually endless once you decide you're not
towing anything and just want a cruiser pickup with lots of high end
horsepower ...

Just my $.02
wish
