Thanks for the answers guys, as for the crushing. The pipes actually did
exit right behind the right rear tire, I crushed it backing up to off-load
a lawnmower. I reckon I'll have to get some longer ramps because I have to
back up sideways to an embankment at my outlaws to take it off.

There is also a danger of carbon monoxide intrusion if you have an enclosed
camper shell and tailpipes to the rear of the truck (back bumper). The
safer alternative would be a side exhaust behind rear wheel opposite side
of
gas door. (Happens to be the stock location on my truck). I had to have a
tail pipe replaced on a previous truck I owned (only from the muffler
back).
The original stock went straight back and ended at the rear of the vehicle
but under the bed. The muffler guy said regardless of the stock
configuration, state regs required him to install a side exit.

Another advantage to side exit behind rear tire is that unless you go off a
sheer drop you probably won't crush it.

This may be likely thinking about it ... do the trucks run a square style
intake runner, or are they round ? that may be something to watch for ...

True, but I was thinking more in terms of mount locations ... I"m not sure
all the holes 'd line up ...

Wish,
The trucks do have the square holed intakes. But I have heard of stangs
running the truck lower with a box upper. Based on flow testing the truck
lower is the best flowing EFI lower Ford ever made.

A car EFI intake is a totally different port shape, more of an oval, whereas
the truck lower intake is like a rectangle; however an old Saleen upper uses
a truck lower intake.

$600! Man that guy is proud if that crank! Is that what the going price for
428 cranks is?
