Sounds like you got a "roller block 5.0" which is basically one from 86(?)
or later. These were fitted with roller lifters, they are essentially
little wheels that roll over the surface of the cam rather than sliding like
a conventional lifter. This means less friction and smoother revving, not
to mention you can usually run a more radical cam.

Check out the Mustang sites, they will likely have the info you're looking
for. You talked about your computer needing updating and everything, but I
missed what year vehicle you were talking about. A well built 302 should do
wonders compared to an old tired one too :)

Hey Darrel, be sure and let us know, I'm VERY interested in this ... not
only for myself, but another guy's buggin me too :) And I do have a place I
can pick up the injector and stuff (old style though) pretty cheaply (for
now), only thing was he told me it sucked when you got below 30deg F, so
I'll be interested to know what you find ....

Subject: FTE Perf - Mazda 5 speed manual, strength?

Hi,

I've got one of these in my '91 F-250 4x4. I am going ahead with a 351w
swap (302 now). Are there any concerns with the strength of this
transmission? Was it offered with a 351w? If not what manual was?

So far it has worked fine behind the gutless 302. But I plan to build the
351 a bit... perhaps gt-40 heads, and maybe a 'stroker' to 416 cu in.

Will the flywheel from the 302 fit the 351? I just did a clutch job last
year and had the fly wheel resurfaced, so would like to reuse it if I can
stay with this transmission. I know when I redid the clutch I had ordered
one for a 302/Mazda but when it showed up it wasn't the same as the one I
had. After I brought it in they told me the clutch was for a 351w, I
replaced it with the same kind.

Thanks.
Bye.

Subject: FTE Perf - chips?

I have a 98 F150 4X4 XLT with the 5.4 liter V8 and auto trans. Has anyone on
the list tried an aftermarket chip or the Hypertech Power Programmer? Also
any opinions on exhaust would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for
information on best bang for the buck. I already have a K&N Gen II air
cleaner kit on it. I use the truck for pulling trailers and some mild
wheeling. I am sorry if these subjects has already been covered. Thanks for
any and all responses.

The one I have is the very first one, Projection 4. Its basically an
electric carberator. I like it though. After I wrote that letter, I had a
problem related to how I ran my fuel lines, causing the truck to stall out.
Hopefully I will have it smoothed out in the next few days, no time right
now. Thank god for a company truck! Dont worry though, I plan on keeping
everyone well posted, as this is one thing that if works right can benfit
EVERYONE.
