Hi everyone. I joined to learn about the Dakota series. I inherited a rusty '93 from my mother. The truck sat for a couple years, and it took an afternoon with a torch and hammer and to get back on the road. I have to fix a fuel leak on top of the tank, replace a u-joint, and find out why the transmission likes to wait forever to upshift and never goes into OD.

This truck has no almost no options....you have little plastic cranks for the windows, no A/C....but it does have a sliding window, and a cassette player. And a 5.2l

I want to modify the engine but I am oldskool, never played with an engine the had wires running to black boxes. I'm hoping to find out how far I can push the engine and still have enough fuel going in. I'd like 300-350hp, and plan on using what I learned from the old 340-360 engines to get there. Stuff like swapping in nailhead valves, upping the compression, changing the cam...
