\'99 Explorer 5.0 engine (GT40P) question(s) for \'65 mustang
I'm an old school guy (289 in 65 mustang), and I'm just looking into the new 5.0 engine (roller cam) stuff recently. Can anyone give me a little feedback about a '99 Explorer 5.0, and tell me if it's my answer.
Are these all roller cam motors, and will they accept a larger cam with the stock roller lifters?
Would these GT40P heads be any better than my 351W heads (64CC) or am I about the same? I'd really like to replace my old school engine with the new roller technology, and I can get a good price on this '99, so I'm curious if this is my answer. Are there any known issues with this motor (typically) I just plan on swapping my carb and intake (and pan) over and I'll upgade to a .480 - .500 lift cam. Will this work with this type of 5.0 or do I need a GT 5.0 to make the larger cams work. 3000-6000 RPM?
Thanks for any and all advice.
