    With the amount of aftermarket available for the 5.0, that's not a bad choice. You can bolt on some major power for those things.

    Even though I'm a chevy man.

    :flipoff2: Fords!! :D

    I think Marks and AA both can help you out.

    i believe the marks kits for fords dont require you to change d-shaf lenghts like the AA ones.

    at least thats why i bought a marks adapter for my chevy! :D

    marks adaptors usually are high quality and also usually result in the shifters lining up with the shifter holes and no driveshaft length changes. good product if i could ever afford one

    I like the AA bellhousing cause with a V8 you can add an AA Rockbox and it all fits sweet. Great option for low gears.

    AA also requires finding a flywheel for the V8, preferably a truck one, but the marks kit comes with flywheel doesn't it?

    the biggest problem is finging the best oil pan for the change I found the best
    pan is from a van of the early 80's
