QUESTION>>>NEED HELP

Do lightnings come with roller engines or not? I was under the impression that all lightning engines were roller engines but I have been recently told that's not so. Please Help!

All 94-95 are F4TE (roller blocks) on 93 its hard to say . Some say
that early 93 were not roller well thats wrong. Mine is #273 of #5276 and its roller. True some 93 were non roller, But it was just mixed that year.. Best thing I can tell you is check the casting # on the block.
Adam,

None of 1st Gen Lightnings had roller cams/lifters. Like Adam said, most did have the roller ready blocks.

no lightning had a roller motor, like adam said 94+ and some late 93s had roller cam compatible blocks but none came from the factory with roller cams
