    First thing I would do since its not mentioned is put a set of underdrive pulleys on it.

    I ain't familiar with them there Ford pushrod engines...do dem have the same parts as those OHC engines?

    I asked Jethro and he says do some 250 shot first, only cause thats what all them Chebby boys do on their pushpod engines. After that, personally, I'd replace all 4 cams cause them stock stickers are the outhouse stink.

    The 5.0 can take a heck of a beating thats for sure. I had on when I was 21 and beat the shit out of it for 70,000 miles with half of those on a blower. Never Missed a beat. But like everything a stock 5.0 has its limits.
    If you are a horsepower junkie like Dan the motor and trans has to go. LOL
