351 EFI Performance

OK, I have done several searches and all come up empty so here goes. Lets say I want to buy a used 351 out of a 93 F-150. I will be getting a AOD transmission and as the book says I will not be getting a roller cam engine. Lets also say that I am having it rebuilt and I do want an all around good low maintenance but powerfull motor. What should I have done to the motor for good horsepower and a compromise but realiability and good gas mileage. Ed

Bigger ? What do you plan to do with the engine? Truck, car, towing, slinging mud, jumping ditches or just a daily driver with some ummph.

The formula for performance upgrades is about the same for a 302/351 in a truck with the stock intake. There is plenty of performance within the stock drive train parameters.There are quite a few people who have done it and there is always lively discussion on the 87-96 boards.

A good stock rebuild with attention to detail can produce excellent results. A little more compression, mild speed density cam accompanied by some good bolt ons will do well.

As far a the engine rebuild itself. I would suggest the first step is to find a machine shop to deal with. Without telling the Machinist what to do, I would get a light flattop piston, calculate the increase in compression to bring it upwards of 9/1 but not over 10, larger valves and almost any mild speed density compatible cam will be a big improvement.
