    117k got it for a pretty good deal.
    Will end up needing to replace the lifters to the non mds, at which point I'll cam it as well.
    Put GT's to shame on the highway. Lol

    Replace the timing chain too. With that many miles, if that is the original timing chain, it's on borrowed time!

    Have you seen the 6bt swapped 300? That would fix the lifter issue

    LOL, actually, I have! My brother got a dead 5.7 (timing chain broke) from a guy who was putting in a 12V to replace it.

    No clue, probably is. Lol hadn't seen it mentioned before. I know the fords are bad about it.
    Add that to the list of "while it's apart."
