Posting in general since it's a Ford. Twenty years ago my grandfather gave me his 1992 F-150. Nothing special as it's just a two wheel drive , extend cab, 300 I6, E4OD, 8.8 rear stripper truck. I've kept it though and it has a considerable amount of sentimental value. With the Fifth Avenue nearing completion I'm eyeballing the next project and I'm thinking about this truck. I'm torn though...I really want to start getting into newer motors, but doing an engine swap on this truck seems like I'd be ripping its soul out. My grandfather was a big fan of the 300 I6. I guess I could hop the I6 up, but I've built a 258 Jeep six before, and to blunt, they suck. I just don't think I'll be all that impressed with this motor and it certainly won't satisfy the itch of working on new motor designs. Getting another car is out of the question because of space. Advice?
