    ok first off sorry for not being more active I haven't really needed any help since I 5 speed swapped my 96 in 2011.. so technically I'm not a new member just been 6 years since I logged on lol

    I now have a 99 eddie 4x4 4.0 that I have successfully 5 speed swapped and recently got ahold of a 5.0 96 doner.

    now here's the question what will it take to get the 5.0 in the truck and retain everything including cruise control hvac etc. I have a full doner and am aware I will need to locate a f150 m5od.

    oh and side note but not really important during the 5.0 swap it's also going solid axles (dana 44 and f150 8.8)

    I've read a few threads but haven't seen any that were 96 5.0 into a sohc chassis. I'm not afraid of wireing I just don't know if it's plug and play if not I will just retain the 4.0 I just want to not struggle to tow my 2000 lbs boat any more.. sorry for rambling and thanks in advance

    wiring.....lots of wiring repining. and fuel system. 99 is a returnless, 96 is a return.

    hmmmmm I'm thinking the extra what 35 lbs of torque isn't worth it

    Why not just find a clean 5.0 truck and buy that? They're cheap enough these days.

    It's very worth it. The power comes on earlier too. I just finished a 97 5.0 into a 01 with a 5 speed swap, almost the exact same thing. There was a lot of wire repinning but it wasn't hard. I converted to the return style fuel lines.
