First I want to say that I just think this site kicks a$$ {cool} I just bought my first R/C about a week ago and am already in love{blush} any way what I don't understand is that my vin says that my motor is a "5.2 V8 EFI 89-93"

I have a 1988 RC LE150 4X4 . so is it a 318? and if so why dont it just say so? kinda confused ??? on this topic. hell I am kinda confused ??? about alot of things. I'll be posting more later but this will do for now thanx. :p

well, do you have a carb? If you do, then you have a 360, if not, then you have a 318/5.2L, since they started to switch to EFI in 88 on the 318s, the 360s were one year behind, went EFI in 89. ;)

Welcome to the site!!

correct me if I am wrong, but isn't a 5.2 L still a 318 if it has fuel injection or not? wouldn't the 5.9 L be a 360??
You are absolutely correct...so what was the question? Can't really find the confusing part in the thread ???

I only said, that in 88 they switched the 318 from carb to EFI, so if he finds a carb under his hood of his 88 RC, he most likely has a 360, since that bigger engine turned EFI one year later, in 89.
