Re: Whats the mileage on your 5.0??

Nice haha, that's a ton of miles..

You can kill a 5.0 though, I'm sure the block was re-usable however! I still have it, 112k miles on it, I cracked a few ring lands on the pistons.. oops

currently I've got 6500ish on the motor, 118.5k on the car..

My 89 had 186k miles on her when I sold it

Re: Whats the mileage on your 5.0??

lol yup excpecialy if they are highly modded, mine just has full headers, o/r h pipe, flows,3.73's,and a superchips chip. if the motor ever goes out i am planning a d.s.s. 331 with twin hair dryers and a 6 spd and fab 9 rear. with about 20 pds of boost to hopefully reach my goal of around 750- 800 rwhp. that should be just about right for a daily drivin street car!! lol

Re: Whats the mileage on your 5.0??

lol i have a wife and i just ordered her a 45k twin turbo bmw (it will late september or october before it gets over here) so it will be awile for me to. plus the 3000 dollars i sunk in my new 68's 351w i built just was destoyed thanks to the push rods that came not hardened like they stated and my guide plates ate the push rods and the metal shavings stoped up the oil galleys causing the the back lobe of the cam to be sarved of oil and flattened the lobe and dished the lifter. so now out she comes once more to be rebuilt for the second time in only 300 miles. so the fox is going to be sometime.

A whole 68,000 on our '92, most of it in it's earlier years. Now we're lucky to put 500 miles a year on it...

Re: Whats the mileage on your 5.0??

im impressed with my DSS, however if I planned on making a monster i'd definetly go with a dart of some kind, or a boss block so long as you stay under 3.25"
