What conversion kit were you referring to?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I was hoping they made conversion kit for 5.0 to 4.9 harness otherwise wiring won't hook up under dash and I will have to go to carb
Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 8 months ago.
No, there is no such conversion kit. However, there are wiring kits available for custom applications. Click here to see example.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
what application would I need
Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 8 months ago.
Custom means you change the harness as required to fit your needs. Have you done anything like this before? What kind of budget are you working with?
