converting an f150 into a lightning

i have a 99 f150 5.4 and i am buying the whole top of a brand new lightning truck engine to supercharge my engine. i will have every part of the upper intake and supercharger including the engine loom. my question is, do i have to change the fuel pump and what do i need to get the intercooler to work?

Sorry man... but you still cannot refer to it as a "Lightning"... cause it's not unless you're gonna do all the suspension mods etc... I highly doubt that you will "need" to change the fuel pump, but it might be a good idea.

uh... well, prolly your best bet is gonna be to post in the Lightning forum, they can help you much more than I can, however I believe that the intercooler should be fairly easy... just mount it and plumb it. I think this will prolly be the least of your problems though, I think the tough part will be the s/c itself. Also, the brakes are different on the Lightning too, they are actually 3/4 ton brakes. That's a project, but good luck.

J/C Why are you tearing through a 02 Lightning to make a 99?

Why not go with a 5.4 supercharger instead of a "lightning" supercharger. Probably cheaper and the kit will have all the parts you need to install.

Dont get the OEM supercharger, get your own internals and build an engine, then put a Kenne Bell supercharger on it, at 14 pounds of boost or so. Then go out and try to hold traction.

Probably better off buying aftermarket. The stock supercharger has a habit of overheating after a few 1/4 mile runs and performance is affected greatly.
