4v 5.4l FORD engines came in Lincoln navigators and are some of the best mod motors. 3v truck engines are the second best. They really are good engines for the bad rap they receive. Plenty of RPM and...

I think a 600 should be just fine, especially since its a vacuum secondary. How do your plugs look? If you're running rich, then jet down two sizes and try again.
