HOW STRONG AND DURIBLE IS THE LIGHTING [94]SHORTBLOCK? THE REASON I ASK IS THAT I WANT TO BUILD A 408 OUT OF IT TO PUT IN MY 90LX ITS GONNA BE CARBED,ANOTHER QUESTION IS WILL A T5 BOLT UP TO A 94 351?WILL THE FLYWHEEL FROM A 302 H.O FIT ON IT?AND WILL THE CLUTCH AND ALL RELATED COMPONETS FIT? I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT IM GETTING INTO BEFORE I GO HEAD FIRST INTO IT.IF ANY BODY OUT THERE HAS ALREADY DONE THIS TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS AND WHAT YOU HAD TO DO TO MAKE IT FIT.THANX

As far as the tranny bolting up, it should-as long as you use the correct bellhousing for that tranny. You will need a 28 oz. flywheel for the tranny, just use the same clutch setup.

the block are very strong the ones i build i used a main support kit with studs,the flywheel should bolt to the 5.8 crank the engine balance need to be with that flywheel because the 5.8 flywheel weight is different.

Talking I have one for sale

I have one M-6010-A351 brand new already machined out to 4.020 bore. This is the same block used in the S351 SALEEN and I thought the F-150 Lightning Truck too but not sure on that one. It is rated good to 750HP and up to 427 cu in, also read in a Ford engine book that it has a NASCAR type iron which promotes better ring seal than a standard block casting.. Reply back to my AOL e mail or PM me.

This block is NOT the sameone used in the 93-95 Lightning. It is a sportsman block and is better then the stock Lightning block. It has thicker webbing in the mains and is a stronger block. I run mid 11's in my 4200 lb. Lightning if you want to do the math. I have seen some Lightning's run in the 10's with a stock block and mustang's run 9's with a stock Lightning block.(Lidio's yellow mustang)
