I am looking for about 300 horse either carb or EFI. It's going in a 87 F150. I was wondering what kind of trans I should look into as well. Can I keep the stock 8.8? Or swap it for a 9 inch? I have checked out a couple of the SVO motors has anyone ever had a 302 crate motor or event the 351's? Thanks alot.

I don't know what you mean by "moderately priced" but I have something you might be interested in. I bought an 89 F-250 4X4 with a 460 EFI engine and C6 trans. The truck was T-boned so the engine/trans and front and rear axles are in great shape. I bought it to put the motor in a 67 cougar but decided to go with a 427 small block stroker instead. The motor was rebuilt about 20,000 miles ago. The motor/trans are still in the truck along with the computer. You could actually turn your truck into a 3/4 ton 4X4 if you were interested in the running gear too.
