I don't have a ford truck 1st of all but I do have a ford 4.2L V6 sitting in my garage, I found the engine in my high schools auto shop. Its missing the valve covers, oil pan and intake. it also has two bent rods and a cracked head. currently its just sitting there and I plan to get it started during summer when I should have the time. When its finished I'm going to drop it in my '95 3.8 mustang to give it more giddy-up and stuff.
I've been looking at cams mostly and I'm still looking for the best one I want the loudest sound possible. The exhaust is just going to be LT headers with straight pipes going back. I'm also thinking i'll get the wind star upper intake
