6.2L v8 information for swap

So i sold my 95' lightning and got a more economical car. 2013 v6 mustang. Well needless to say I decided I am going to build up the 6.2L and drop it into a First generation lightning. But first thing is it needs to be built. Starting from short block and working my way up!

First off before i continue I need to figure out what the site of the motor is and what size the new transmission is. I am going with the 6 speed automatic and would also like to know if they have aftermarket valve bodies and spring kits to make this shift like a drag truck. Let me know ANY information.

Also who offers stroker kits? I want to try to stay N/A but don't want to go to big and burn a lot of oil. Going to keep Sequential fuel injection using the stock computer. Want to swap out clusters that come in the new truck. Basically create a pure up to date truck that looks like an oldy on the outside but performs and has the luxury of the new ones with a custom touch to interior.

Looking to create a cruiser for the weekends but also one bad little drag truck all in one that won't make me broke to drive it a couple days a week. I am guessing 20mpg with a descent tune and if i get the power to the wheels i know i can get more as i won't have to be into it as much to get up to speed.

This is a couple year project and will keep everyone posted in the OBS forum section for 1992-1996 trucks. But need the information of the new 6.2L which is why i am starting here. Let me know. Thank You

You'd probably get faster results if you went to the wreckers and measured one that they had out on a skid.

Check out the 'Did the aftermarket quit on us' thread on this forum. In short, there isn't much aftermarket anything for the 6.2L, at least not yet. To be honest I don't think we will ever see much because outside of the Raptor, the 6.2L is a 'truck', not a performance engine. Your idea of stuffing a late model performance drivetrain in an early Lightning is interesting. If I was going to do something like that, I think I would look at a 5.0L Coyote, not the 6.2L. Good luck!

I would think that the electronics would be the biggest hurdle to cross. Any engine and transmission can be bolted in, but making them work is another story today. Ford Racing might be a good place to start looking for tech support. I have been thinking about finding a way to install the six speed automatic in my 06 5.4L. I like most everything about the 06, but the tranny is way outdated. I'm thinking that a tranny swap might be cheaper than a new truck and all the electronic nannies that I neither want or need.
