    You're not building up a Ford 300 are you? I've been wanting to do the same thing with my '85 150.

    If you know a good source of performance parts for these motors lemme know. Been having trouble finding good, affordable stuff.

    Hacksaw ftw!

    Cheese, it's a 240, but I could put the 300 internals in it if I wanted and make it a 300. But, I'm gonna keep it a 240.

    The wonder of the I6 is that it doesn't need to make much power. Its all torque, and superb for a truck application. 300 would do better but hell, nobody has a 240 anymore. Should still do OK, especially on the bottom end. I can tell that thing has been in there a looooong time. That engine bay is nice and juicy. Purple Power ftw!

    The 240 and 300 look indentical. They share the same block. The 240 head has a smaller combustion chamber then the carbed 300 but otherwise the heads are the same too.

    The 240 is a great engine and it revs much better then the 300 due to it's shorter stroke. It just makes a little less torque then the 300.

    looks good. Now I'll know what I'll be going through soon. Most likely that engine probably had at least another 100k miles in her.
    From what I've been reading over on the truck forums, the EFI exhaust is a definate improvement, especially if you are on a budget, but tubed headers are still way better. Hedman has a set for $165. And that Holley 390 will really wake that thing up. Supposedly the cam kit will give the engine more of a passenger car personality. Rev higher, etc.
