Hey travers auto in Michigan is where I got my navi engine. They have a 2v for 650 obo. They have cheap shipping too. Offer them 650 shipped and I guarantee you'll get it. It's the expulsion engine on eBay. Type in 5.4 engine and it's like 5 down the page. Red expy.

Intake gaskets got here quick from ebay. Still waiting on lash adjusters and oil pan studs to show up. Going to soak the rocker arms in oil and reuse them. Nothing wrong with them just want to get all the dirt/dust off.

No idea on that.. Might have to bite the bullet an try to get them from Ford. I do know on the Navi's particularly most of the bolts have completely different lengths. Also make sure you replace the heater feed tube that goes from the back of the water pump to the rubber hose for the heater inlet. it will be cheap insurance to prevent you from having to pull the manifold again.. Its a pita in a stock truck but the body lift will help alot..

Thanks, I'll probably shoot them an email about what I'm looking for

Ok ill check with ford. One more question, this is the heater tube that came off my navi. Should I use the "U" shaped one, or the "S/Z" shaped one that the f150s have.
