Hey guys, new to the forum and looking for any assistance or tips that may assist in my swap. I ordered a 08 LY6 last week and it will be swapped into my 68F100 offroad truck. I should be receiving it this next week. I want to get all pieces into place to get the engine and operating system pieces in place. Not worried about exhaust at this time.
the truck is a built offroad prerunner that eventually will be raced, however for now i am building it for weekend cruising / offorad fun. I would like to cam the engine prior to install howver i am not sure if i am keeping VVT or not. ( i dont want this to be a thread about opinions of why you think i should keep VVT or not, Just plainly looking for assistance). I have located Pillagenburn's thread and 3 pedal's thread and found them very helpful. The truck currently has no engine-trans, it does have a 35 gal Jaz Fuel cell but no other fuel provisions.
The engine I purchased did not come with computer or wiring harness. I am planning to run a TH400 transmission. I would like to know all of my options for engine management. (I will be staying with EFI and likely will stay with the truck intake for now)
Looking forward to starting down this road, from what I have read this set up will be well worth the effort.
Here is a few links to my truck before i bought it a few months ago and pre
