Well, it may be my DD but it's a build! It's a '91 F250 XLT Lariat 4x4 to start off.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

- It has a 5.8L (351ci) Jasper crate engine with the RV cam for that low end torque. We replaced the old engine when it blew a head gasket at 175,000 miles. Shorty headers, gutted cat, Dynomax Super Turbo catback with dual pipes. It only cranks out to 3,500rpm and (approx guess) makes ~250HP at 3k rpm. Torque is ~350ft.-lbs. somewhere around 2,000-2,500rpm. Not too shabby, I say.

- Original E4OD automatic with a shift kit and beefed up internals to withstand a Powerstroke engine's torque.

- Original axles, 9" in the back with 3.55 gears and a posi. TTB front end. I think a Dana 55 diff?

- The most payload I've had in the bed was around 3 tons of gravel, max I've towed it was scaled in around ~16,000lbs GCWR.

My dad bought it in '96 totaled. We have all the original dealership papers. It was a work truck when it was new, it's a work truck now, and always will be. I grew up in the middle of the seat. My dad bought it for towing the Westwood Middle School Panhandlers Steel Drums band and the UHS Marching Bad all over the place for competitions. As of 11/14/11, it has 198,000 miles and (like any 20 year old truck) needs a little rust here and there taken care of lol

I have a special place in my heart for this one. Over the years I've named this one Leroy, and he's my boy BigSmile

Thanks! You do! It's great to have something that you really don't have to worry too much about!

I was gonna call, but I'll just ask you! The online E85 locator says Dulaney's has E85 -- is that true?

Yup, there's not enough of a demand for it for us to have a whole pump and large tank dedicated to it but we do sell it. Give us a call on Monday and talk to my dad, Mike, about price and all that fun jazz. Our hours are from ~6am-4:30pm.

Let me rephrase that, we have a small tank and pump dedicated to it but it's not a full size service station pump. It's right beside the retail outlet in the building.

I think I finally found what's in this crate engine! When we got it, Jasper never told us anything about it besides that it had a stump-pulling cam and is a streetable/reliable workhorse blah blah blah the usual selling points lol

This crate engine sounds just about right!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I DO know mine is the 2v variant so it makes "allegedly" 240hp and 340lb.-ft. of torque in-which mine specific engine should be slightly more having a full exhaust with headers, gutted cat, and catback. I'm thinking 245hp maybe 250hp and 350-355lb.-ft. of torque.

I even found what I believe the cam is, the part number is "E7JE-6250-AA" which has the description of "lots of low end torque, etc." and is 208/224 @.050" .453"/.453" lift 115.5 LSA.

No too shabby of an engine that we got for around $4k and has gone almost 30,000 miles with no troubles. BigSmile

Verdict: WOW. Huge difference, all the old plugs were white except one which was burnt but dry. It actually tachs up where the real hp is, lot more responsive, lot more low end torque, no valve rattle even with 87 octane. It's fantastic BigSmile
