any suggestions?

i have the chance to buy back my 88 f150. i know the truck is not no historical piece, but it was my first ride, and my dad purchased it new in 88. actually, i think it was his christmas present from my mom. anyway, i have the chance to get it back, and after 300000 + miles, the interior is starting to wear and the paint is starting to go. i have the bodywork part of it covered, my buddys dad has a bodyshop. i want to redo the interior and put 2 bucket seats in it instead of the bench seat. for the drivetrain, it has the old pice o **** mazda 5 speed in it with a HO 302 in it. for the motor, i wanted to either build or have motor built. i want a 347 with a 671 or 681 blower sitting on top of it. this is where i need some suggestions. anyone know a good engine builder? i ride atvs with a guy that builds drag engines, but sometimes i wonder about his info. and does anyone know the difference in a 671 blower and 871, i tried to search it but could not find it. i want to put a built c6 tranny behind it. this will take me a while to do, but i think it would be cool to do just for the fact of the history behind the truck. i had even thought about goin with a 351 based motor. any input?

Re: any suggestions?

Detroit Diesel engines are the engines that those blowers were originally designed for (2 stroke, supercharged diesels for heavy trucks). The DD engine designation was the first number was the number of cylinders, and the second number was the displacement in cubic inches of each cylinder. So a DD 871 was 8 cylinders at 71 cubes each (568 cubes), and a 671 was a six cylinder.

ANyway - the 871 blows more air.

BTW - sounds like a cool project to me, and since it has sentimental value to you I'd buy it if the price was right.

Re: any suggestions?

900 bucks, i cant pass it up. it runs fine like it is, just needs some tlc. he (the guy i sold it to) let his brother in law drive it for a while and let it go down hill. i want to snatch all that fi bull out of it. it will be my "toy".

i had read somewhere that they were first designed for a diesel. isnt there also a size difference in them as well?
