Hey everyone sorry I’ve been gone so long but I do have a little progress to report even though I'm not working on it I do keep planning and picking up parts. Something new is I have decided to go with a fuel injected 4.6L from a 98 mustang I picked up. It was my nephew's car that he loved and took good care of until someone rear-ended him and totaled the car. The motor still runs great and is real strong so it should be a good fit as that is same type motor that was in the F150 as well. I also picked up a lowering kit for the 2002 chassis to drop it about 4" and a set of aftermarket wheels and tires that where on a 2003 Lightning. The wheels are a little big for my taste but will do for now.

here are a few pic's as no update is any good without them....lol

It got hit so hard that the door overlaps the rear door jam by a good 4" and it buckled the door and the front fender on the the drivers side.

That looks like a 99 mustang. That 4.6 puts out 260HP to the crank. They do really well on boost too. The torque curve might not be right for the truck though.
