I have read that the truck 5.0 motors are roller blocks. Does this mean all I have to do is install a roller cam, lifters, and rockers? I saw a Roller conversion kit that gives you the hold down plate and screws. Do I need this also?
If your engine doesn't have a roller cam already yes you could install one, you would need the cam, lifters, rockers, pushrods, lifter ties and hold down. All this stuff can be grabbed from a 5.0 HO Mustang, TBird, etc from 88 and up./
