Re: Yet another engine problem
A reman long block would probably be the fastest and easiest way to go, a used LB from a mustangs probably going to have a roller cam if its a late H.O in which the duration of that cam may create an idle problem with your Speed density EFI, but if i remember correctly, `94 and up truck 5.0s also have a roller cam so you could swap the cam out since i doubt they have the same grind, ( trucks need more low-end torque), I had my Bronco on the scale at the county dump yesterday, 5100lbs.

You may be able to find a good used 5.0 from a truck but will probably already have High mileage. Rebuilding your own would be my choice of options but takes more down time, is this your daily driver?
A 351W swap will require some work (new ECU, manifolds, exh, etc) a diesel, hope you have plenty of time and cash [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
