Ask sharkbait. He did it already. Check out his thread:
Sharkbait's Lightning Swap!

You also have other options.
You can build a 5.4L Navigator motor for NA a la the 2000 Cobra R,
Go with an NA 4.6 DOHC, or a 3v swap, or even swap in the mighty forged terminator engine. Your possibilities are endless. You might want to start searching and see what suits your tastes.

Oh come on, a 9" cowl hood isn't that bad :lol

But seriously, you've got some research to do if you're thinking about a motor swap. I can't even begin to touch on all the aspects. Read, read, and read some more.

Sharkbaits is not a lightning bottom end, it just has the lightning blower set up on it.

I thought he scored a complete Lightning motor. So what's the bottom end? Just a Triton? That would make me incredibly nervous. Everyone mocks the M112 as such a wimpy blower, but it's more than enough to pop a stock motor.

And wasn't the reason he got this one because he blew the last one? If he blows this one I think he'll earn the nickname "Sharkbait the engine destroyer." :p
