hi i have a chance 2 buy a lightning 5.8L short block to build for my truck but idk if its worth gettin it or just gettin my regular 5.8L built instead if anyone could help me i would appreciate it thanks
I personally wouldn't use the factory cam if it comes with the short block. The F4TE blocks (found in mid 93 and later 5.8L) make it easy and inexpensive to convert to a roller cam using roller hardware and lifters from a 5.0/5.8 roller cam equipped motor.
