8.8", you say?

You'll absolutely shred it. You're putting ~500 FT LBs into a rear axle that's only really good up to 300 foot pounds at the flywheel. Won't last long.

What's the ratio on the 8.8, by the way? And is it 29 or 31 spline?

im going to just use the stock intake for now then convert it over later as a project. also it seems that the 89 fords tranny could be a different bolt pattern, atleast thats what i have heard. not sure if its true or not. BTW im only putting the tranny in for now as i need my car BAD. so the motor will be later on in the month.

AFAIK the FI truck engines had absolutely no throttle response due to the absolutely massive plenum and pathetic cam. I know the sixes did.


How'd you break the trans, anyways? Neutral drops?

oh the motor we put in was from our mechanic. he built it for us so its not a POS stock motor. has around 290hp is all though. and well i was actually driving home and it started making a grinding noise so i pulled off at jack in the box ( where i also ate dinner LOL) and by the time it was in the parking lot it was gone. 1st is a busted ass reverse, NO POWER AT ALL and 2nd is neutral and so is 3rd and park LOL. i still have reverse though.
