Hi all, have been hanging around and putting my 2 bits worth in occaisionally. Have a ? for those in the know. With the early lightnings (meaning pre supercharged) what were some of the components that increased the performance of these trucks?
I presently have a '91 f150 supercab with the 5.8 in it and the engine is starting to get a bit tired. Would like to find a real lightning but this truck is paid for and owes me nothing. If someone would tell me what the differences were or tell me where i can find this info, i would appreciate it and maybe start collecting the parts needed to build the engine to lightning specs.
Great board and source of info. Thanks all
