Default just bought 89 5.0 4x4

I got it but now whenever I turn the key I hear a click or pop type of noise. Then all the lights and everything turn off, how can I fix that? Also when it is fixed what are a list of mods I can do to make it sound like a nice v8. I'd like a lope sounding cam and nice exhaust. Speed since I'm used to driving my slow 7.3 so I don't need a race truck lol

Not sure exactly what the sound could be. Possible the starter solenoid on the passenger side fender under the hood, should be mounted close to the battery. As far as sound goes, you can just take the muffler off after the cats. It won't be real loud but it gives it some nice sound and its still quiet in the cab if you run a straight exhaust pipe out to a side dump. As far as cams go that's more of a personal preference, not sure what you are after but there are plenty of cams out there for old 5.0's. Hope this helps.
