            Those engines are good for 250k miles, then they start to pop spark plugs off the heads, casting threads and all!

                if you are still looking to do this. That is a very wide motor. I would check that. Also look a Ford Motor sport, ( now Ford Racing again) they probably make a stand alone kit for it. PCM and minimal wiring harness to make it run. They have been increasing the out put of these lately. The new 5.0 already has it all already.....

                  For now its covered on a stand thanks for the info, as long as the FE holds on I will too, but it would be cool to have it installed

                    Has anyone seen a Barra Engine built by Ford Australia. There is a 6 cylinder Turbo (not sure on these figures as they seem to change wherever you read) 325Kw 576Nm and the 5.4LTR V8 345Kw at 570Nm. The V8 would be way to wide I think but the 6 might fit in. Just.
