It's a 5.0, which is luckily what I prefer. I drove both in the field, and remember the 5.8 was a (bigger) gas hog. I never had an issue with the power the 5.0; it was fine. And now that I'm paying the gas bills, it's the best option.

Not sure about the radiator. Does that not look stock?
I agree with the battery cable connectors. This isn't the first time I've had to clean-up those on a car to make it start.
