Don,t know if it is a 5,2 or 5.9 think they swap the engine, originally was a 5.2 but serial # is different on this engine is on a 97 4x4 lariat ext cab

1 Answer


Bore size is different. 5.9 has a 4.030" bore. If thats what you measure after removing the head you got the big one! Photo is of an early 360 (5.9)
