5.0EFI In a 57' Ford

I've seen a thread or two, but none complete, and are old, so i'm surer new updates are available. I'm planning on yanking out the ford-o-matic and 292 ************************and throwing in an AOD and 5.0EFI HO.

Any opinions,tips,comments on the swap? Anyone make simple kits. What problems will i run into (finding the right type of AOD, Crossmember fabrication, WIRING!!!, etc.)

It is a very simple swap. A donor is needed as it will give you everything, including the swap harness.

I have done this, several times.
You have a speed density 150 hp lo-po engine. Not a real good choice, and it is almost impossible to up the horsepower. I strongly suggest that you find a Mark 7 Lincoln HO with mass air intake, 225 hp. You will be much better off with no fuel mileage penalty. It has a better transmission also.
You can expect 23 mpg @ 65 mph with a 325 rear gear and AC on with either engine. But the lo-po will never be a tire squeeler and will run 0-60 in about 11 seconds.

Its almost a direct drop in, but you need an older small block front sump oil pan and dip stick and drill a hole in the timing cover to move the dip stick to the timing cover.

Decide which rubber motor mounts you want to use and then fabricate stands on the frame.
Original 57 transmission mount will modify simply.
Drive shaft will need the AOD yoke, and length change.

I suggest the fuel pump from a 90s Ford 3/4 ton window van/truck (which has in- tank low pressure pumps for tank switching), use the frame mounted high pressure pump mount and filter assembly mounted below the driver's seat on the frame. Wired through a relay to be controlled by the computer is not necessary but highly recommended since the computer shuts off the fuel if there is no ignition pulses. Don't forget the emergency inertia switch in case of a wreck. (under the right front dash of the truck or trunk of cars) Fuel pump works well when mounted near your fuel tank and will deliver all the fuel you will ever need.

Be sure and use nothing but high pressure fuel hose, even on the suck side of the fuel pump to prevent its collapsing. Run new steel brake line from the tank/pump to the engine for fuel delivery and use the original fuel line for a return line to the fuel tank. Fuel return can be hooked to the tank in the fuel drain hole. You should also use the factory original plastic fuel line nipples and brass fittings on the metal fuel lines for proper connections. I also suggest eliminating the sock filter inside the tank and installing something like a GF2 inline filter between the tank and the fuel pump. This will set you up using all the common Ford parts available anywhere.

Use relays for everything.
Wire O2 sensor heaters through relay.
Do not direct wire anything through the key switch except the 3 computer triggers.

Every piece of wire that gets modified and every wire connection must be soldered and use glue filled heat shrink on every joint, or you will get to do it over on the side of the road. Use silicone dielectric grease in every connector, or else.

It's a Ford. It is really pretty simple.

Crites/ Ford

The teardrop hood is to let heat out.

The induction comes trough the headlight holes.

The Ford truck in frame in line pump is the way to go. I have used several on all types of EFI installs. They used to be costly, but thanks to millions being used, the price has dropped greatly. Good luck!
