Operation GoFastBadAss is officially underway.
Finally found a 351 roller, cast number F4TE. The plan is to build it up and swap it into my Bronco.
I figure I'll start putting together a parts list. Please chime in if you see something wrong.
1994 Roller block, stock bottom end
This intake: Intake Manifolds - Ford - 5.8L- Performer Series - Edelbrock, LLC.
New distributor (open to suggestions)
Gonna try and find some long tube headers (open to suggestions)
Not sure about a cam yet, trying to find something with good power off idle.
Hope to get some pictures up and make some progress.
The cam you want is the Comp 35-512-8, notice it has 114 LSA.
There is no need for anything but a stock Ford distributor, there are no performance gains to be had with it.
Pacesetter makes some of the best fitting longtubes, avoid Flowtech and Hooker. There is also the OBX brand available on eBay that a friend of mine has installed on his Focus and F150 and he said the fit was excellent, these are stainless too so the price is also excellent.

What parts do I need to mate the new 351 to my E4OD since there's a 302 in there right now? And for engine control, all I need is a new ECM and then the 302 harness just plugs in or would I need the 351 harness?
I thought there was a difference between the 5.0 cams and the 5.0HO/5.8 cams because of firing order.
There are two different firing orders but both will work in any windsor family motor since the cam itself determines that. Otherwise all these cams are the same length with the same journal sizes and positions so the same cam will plug into a 289, 302, or 351.

Auto transmissions use a flexplate not a flywheel and there is a balance difference.
well the deal fell through. The day I went to pick the engine up, the guy decides to wait until I get there that he's gonna keep the engine to drop in a fox body. Thinking about sticking with 302 and building that just cause of availability. I think they can still make good power.
