    I hope this interesting project works out. You'll have a very unique truck for sure. Can you get it done and the kinks worked out before the snow flies? IMO, the key to a project like this is making it look like Ford put that engine in there. The ricer green is going to completely blow that, but hey..

    I was going for more of a muscle car theme with the plymouth grabber green. I despise ricers lol. The only kinks i may have to work out are wiring in the engine harness along with the computer and maybe the hydrolic slave cylinder. I still have to re- pin the connectors for the computer. If any one can help me find information on a computer pin out chart for an 03 v10 out of an excursion that would be greatly appreciated. but yes its going to be a very unique truck none the less which is exactly what im shooting for

    Nice, back when I needed a motor in my 99, I was going to drop a 5.0 in it, she woulda ran great. And I knew what all I'd need to do to make it all work. But I ended up taking the quicker route and putting another 4.6 in it because I needed the truck up and running again.
