Thoughts and advice?

Well my motor will be in the shop today, already have the stand, and clays big box will be arriving next week, now all thats left is get my truck up there and swap em' (short story haha).

While doing the swap i have a few things already planned

-Clean and por-15 the entire front end frame and engine compartment.

-Strip the new motor, clean and paint it (still torn on paint here, want to do orange/black but might have to go IH red/black)

-Go through the entire new(used new hehe) motor re-torque everything down, throw some new rosewood stage 1's 160/100

-Por-15 the oil pan after stripping and cleaning

-Wanna flush tranny, and powersteering/brakes, re-seal the p/s pump and clean it up.

-Tighten steering box slightly to fix my loose steering issue

-Flush radiator real good while its out of truck

-Depending on condition of van turbo possibly clean that up and use it over my stock 2000 turbo. Also be putting on my brand new IH bellowed up pipes, and 4" down pipe.

-I have a fuelbowl/hpop re-seal kit on standby might order a few more parts from bob, i do NOT WANT A SINGLE leak with this new motor hahah.

-Jim is going to be doing my ts6pos with beans tunes when he builds my injectors

-Ordered a FRx and HPx, will be doing my in tank mods as well as a diy CCV mod, new cac boots and clamps, as well as plenum inserts, and plugging AE in just because i have it now of course.

What else would you guys do?

Ive pretty much peaked my budget with the stage1's and chip all at once but it was a "need" . On the budget back burner im saving for a modded H2E setup, and am looking to pickup a spare trans to build.

edit-I'm very against the 38R right now, but well see how my H2E budget goes

Pretty good list for sure.

I would send the exhaust manifolds for surfacing and possibly ceramic coating if you want to go that route.

Oil Cooler rebuild, much easier out.

New water pump.

Not gonna be welding the oil jets.....im not trying to fix what dont need fixin' if you know what i mean. Ill do all that on the block im pulling out .

How hard is it to re-build the oil cooler? I recall a couple of recent nightmare threads on the subject...

As far as the manifolds go i dont know if i have enough time to get them surfaced and coated....id really love to but wanna have this truck up and running soon as the new paint dries, so that way i can work out all the kinks before i have to head back to MD.

Oil cooler isn't too bad, here's Cody's write up

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/90...e-of-year.html

I would at least take the manifolds to the machine shop and had them surfaced to get a good seal, you'll probably be running that motor for quite a while, and I see no need to worry about boost leaks further down the road. But I also understand wanting to get it done, Clay may still have some to swap if you wanted to go that route.

Congrats on getting your motor though. Good luck.

Exhaust manifolds don't use a gasket, so to ensure an effective seal, it would be good proactive measure to take them to your local machine shop and have the sealing surface decked flat.

And the IH or "bellowed" up pipes are the pipes that feed the turbo, the International version has "bellows" that allow for the expansion and contraction of the pipes, and prevent them from leaking, where as the stock up pipes use a slip joint and donut gasket.

after I pull my motor i'm going to replace the brake lines since it will be easy to get the front done would you recommend any other lines in the front ?
