ok this question is mainly for squishy because I want first hand knowledge.

I was mainly wondering if you have a write-up on your 5.0L swap because I am finally getting around to putting 4wd back in instead of the 2wd c4 i had for the longest time.

what I really want to know is what did you do for a crossmember and did you ever try to put in the Mazda M5R2 and BW1356? or did you go with the np435 right away.

putting in the np435 what problems did you have and how do you find it on the highway as in rpm's etc?

and last but not least I sure hope your coming to spudspudspudspudspud run because seeing your truck will be the highlite fer me also where do ya live?

hey, just saw this(been wrenchin all day on the dd) im running a 435 and a 205, im also running 5.13's. its like 3300rpm at 110km, i did not do the swap though, unfortunately, but the stock crossmember was drilled and ran the mustang mounts, for the tranny crossmember there is a brace between the radius arm brackers on the frame and then the tranny crossmember is built off that. the mazda would have been too long for my application(b2 short wheelbase, with the doubler would be like a jeep rear shaft, like 14 inches or less i think

hey Squishy
Im thinkin about a 5.8 for a b 2
Ive already got the motor...with 118000 k so its sweet
do you think it will "easily" fit like the 5 litre or?

The 351 windsor will fit not as easily as athe 5.0 but its almost the same size. iv seen guys put in 462's but thats a tight squeeze and iv been told the Cleveland will not fit without some serious mods.
