I think you would be better off in the forum for your truck. Very little from the Lightning will work on your truck unless you put a L top end on it.

Well, whatever engine differences there are between the normal production 351's and the 351's that came in the Gen 1 Lightnings would be a start.

Blurry would be able to point you in the right direction for mods that would work well for your engine too, as well as your appearance upgrades.

You won't be able to buy the Lightning stuff cheap so you might as well buy new aftermarket parts.Plus the lightning stuff will limit you depending on what your goals are.Spend the money on aluminum heads,intake and cam. Headers are easy to do plus the aftermarket has alot for exhaust systems.

The 351w engines are pretty much the same. After 1993 Ford used the roller blocks which were just blocks cast to allow roller cams.

I just want it to look and sound a little different. I live in a country town. I want some style and some performance.

First thing you can do is bump the base timing up a few degrees...that's a free mod.

best bet go to junk yard look for the exhaust manifolds and as well ask for other parts that match up to your model as i am not familiar with the lightning engine but i have a 351w to put in my truck later as i was going that same rout put just the exhaust as well as the heads if i can use my carb on there so good luck ..luv my ford truck
