If you have any questions feel free to ask If you want you can email me at Wayner719@yahoo.com.
April 18, 2009Can I use my 5.4 engine *or* do I have to buy a Lighting engine
April 18, 2009You can use your 5.4L. I had a Lightning blower on my regular 5.4L before swapping out to a Lightning motor. The reason i swapped was to much boost, cold night and not enough fuels caused me to go lean and melted part of #2 piston.
Go for it!!!
