http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_F-...hth_generation

4.9L 300 i6 = 165hp / 275 lb-ft
5.0L 5.0 Windsor V8 = 185hp / 270 lb-ft



EDIT:
for the sake of comparison, those outdated full-size trucks make less power than today's mid-size trucks.
The 2004+ Toyota Tacoma with the 1GR-FE V6 makes 236hp / 266 lb-ft
The 2005+ Nissan Frontier with the VQ40DE V6 makes 265hp / 281 lb-ft

Yep. If you go up to the 5.8L (351) you get to 210hp / 315 lb-ft. Still weak compared to today's engines.

I should add why, I suppose. For the price, a 1987 and 1997 F-150 run within a few hundred dollars of each other on Craigslist. The 10th generation engines are SO far ahead of the old trucks, it's amazing (plus, 10 years less body rust). Even the smaller engines (4.2 V6, 4.6 Triton V8) in the '97 F-150 is good enough to run with the big boys of a decade sooner.

While the 302 is a stout combination when well maintained, I agree that you might be better suited to look newer.

All those horsepower and torque numbers don't mean squat unless you know what rpm they are being produced at.

Peak HP figures at 5600 rpm are useless, unless you are pulling at that rpm.

The ford 300,302, and 351 are easily worked on by the shade tree mechanic. Plus they are supported by the after market for " go faster" goodies. I fixed a plenum gasket leak on my 360 magnum v8 on my 1999 dakota r/t despite being a novice backyard mechanic. My 2012 toyota highlander w/ it 's 3.5 v6 making 270hp I wouldn't touch.

5 speed, when pulling it is like having an over drive with a 5 speed.
