I've got everything but cylinder head gaskets now :chili:

virgin 4.00 bore F4TE block, I picked up last fall

Ford Racing stroker crank M-6303-A385
3.85 stroke nodular iron, just got it (new in box) off ebay ($150 less than retail)

Keith Black 364 Hypereutectic pistons. -22cc dish with Compression Distance of 1.608" (these use full floating piston pins)
This will put compression around 9.5:1

Stock 5.8L 5.956 connection rods (need to machine them for full floating piston pins)

GT40P cylinder heads.
They are not high horsepower heads for this large displacement,
but they will make more low end torque than most other heads.
Plus they are paid for ;)

I had to replace the valve springs to match my cam, crane part # 44308-1

Crane Power Max 2020 roller cam 444211.
Not sure how it compares to a stock 5.0L Mustang roller cam for low end torque.
But it's paid for ;)


Crane link bar lifters. These are better quality than the spider & dog bone style.
I don't need them with the roller block, but they are paid for ;)

Stock 7.567" pushrods Ford Racing M-6565-L58

Ford Racing M-6564-B351 roller rockers 1.6:1

Ford Motorsport valve covers, got them from Gacknar almost 2 years ago.

Edelbrock 3884 & 3822 intakes

75mm Throttle Body. It was a waist of time, but it's paid for ;)

95mm PMAS Velocity MAF sensor

Ford Racing headers, I had to rebuild the passanger side for the GT40P spark plug angle

1.7 rockers are for posers :goodfinge
Look at my cam specs, I already have 0.530 lift.
1.7 rockers would push that to 0.563

SBF cams are designed for 1.6 rockers

i still think its utterly amazing you have a mint roller ready block.

What kind of power are you expecting out of it?

What fuel injectors you gonna run? Got a tweecer or something similar for it?

Any plans for bigger heads in the future? Are your gt-40s stock or worked any?

Sorry...its been a while since i caught a good 393 build....makes me want to go work on mine :toothless

lookin great so far :thumbup

More than my current 351 :shrug it would be nice to have more than 400ft/lb

Not sure yet, I'm running 24's now, but I might switch to 30's
Got a tweecer or something similar for it?
Yep, I'm using SCT Advantage software right now. But i'm looking at switching to Sniper tuning software. I'm using an 1996 OBD-2 E150 computer, so I can flash the ECM by the DataLink connector under the dash ;)

My GT40P heads have stock with the exception of valve springs. Like I said below; I'll get some 180cc heads in a couple years after I refill my piggy bank
looks sweet. How did you figure out everything you needed for such a good build?
I've been working in the Ford aftermarket for the last 5 years. I do lots of research and reading for products and tech suport. This build is about making low end torque for heavy vehicles, not high end horsepower for light weight cars.

this catches my interest. IIRC i heard something about you converting to EDIS or wanting to, Was this part of it? Why the OBD2? Any advantages over a mustang A9L or similar? (obviously the under dash connector is one)

I plan on attempting to convert to edis, just not sure if i want to stay obd 1 or go obd2 with it. I've prettymuch got the stuff to do either. Of course i haven't researched it much lately

Methinks your butt dyno will reach overload!

I could give the build the old Dusttop Dyno run???

I'm doing new product testing. The ODB-2 will have better tuning options in the future. I stayed with the TFI, most people don't have the technical skills to switch. You should only switch to EDIS if you want to be different, the TFI system doesn't have the problems it once did.

That was another reason, I needed an ECU for the trans.

:lolup you wish
whats the final price tag on all of that stuff?
:shrug I'm not doing all this at once. Most of this stuff is already on my Bronco

I did the 5.8L swap with GT40P heads back in March of 2002
Edelbrock intakes & 75mm Throttle Body September of 2004
The roller cam stuff went in June 2005
I did the exhaust, larger MAF, and valve covers with the 4R0W trans October 2006

All I bought this time is a virgin block, stroker crank, pistons & rings.
I’ve got about $1000 in those parts.

sure why not. GT40P heads have 150cc intake runners, 59cc combustion chamber, and 1.84 / 1.46 valves
