Nothing like a powerful V8 in a pick up truck
I'm on my 7th and 8th right now, got a 90 Pro Street Sierra with a 502, 871, Dual Quads, etc... (just a 800-1000 HP street truck)
And I got a little 87 Pro Street Ranger with a 418 cu in 351W that runs mid 10's all day long on the 1320.

As said pay attention to the cooling system and exhaust, mounting it in is the easy part. I had some cooling issue with my old 88 Pro Street Ranger with a 383 Stoker in it at the beginning. Had to cut my radiator support and recess the radiator a bit to get a big enough one in there along with the twin fans. On my Current Ranger custom long tube ceramic fender well headers were made with a matching ceramic side exhaust and it was very expensive. On that I also run a big Alum Rad with twin fans and then I have a HUGE transmission radiator and fan underneath to keep the transmission cool.
