Just switched the flat tappet cam out for a comp cams 290hr roller .544/.544 lift with 1.7 rockers = .578/.578 lift, Ported and polished 351w heads and switched the old torker 2 manifold for a performer rpm air gap...fits snug under hood.

Nice Truck. Did you have to upgrade the brake system on it when you installed that v8?

Thanks a lot! The front brakes are original disc brakes while the whole rear end is out of a 78 Lincoln with disk brakes. They are all utilizing the original power brake system as well.

Thanks for checking it out! The custom work that had do be done consisted of welding proper engine mounts to the frame, a custom made drivers side header to avoid the steering box, and the 9 inch rear end out of an old Lincoln had to be narrowed to fit.
