There was that guy that put a 3-valve 5.4 in a 78 or 79 so it might fit

I think he installed the engine and tranny into the truck. Anything is possible but it won't be bolt in.

I thought he also chopped the firewall too, but that might have been to fit the new dash

BTW the enigne and tranny stuff would be easy, the wiring and getting teh gauges to work would be the biggest PITA to me at least

I dont' think anyone's actually gone ahead with the modular motor swap after researching it..


It's your time & money... hope you got plenty of both. Let us know how it goes. :thumbup

isn't this the same way the sport truck engine will feel? Or do they make gobs of torque down low, too?
haha yea but the 5.4 w/charger comes on sooner but still not a real truck engine.. I know the 4.6 hp band is up at 3-4k, and my car runs damn good there but it doesn't go there much.

BTW where are you going to get a supercharged 5.4 lighting motor? I can't remem the last time i seen one for sale. What is the price on them? 5k? And if you are serioully going to do this I would get a totaled lighting so you can get everthing you need of the truck.

P.S. your money would be better spent rebuilding a 351w and making a stroker out of it. It will have alot better off the line power:beer
