Engine rebuild kit for 1990 5.0 engine

So i have a 1990 5.0 HO block that i want to do new bearings, etc. Im looking for a good kit for this, All the kits i find are for only up to years 1985 or 1988. Is there a difference between my engine and these kits.

I just rebuilt my block (89) this past spring and used Clevite 77 bearings. I can't remember the exact part number, but they were an excellent fit and were of great quality.

For piston rings, I believe I did use Sealed Power and also used a Mellings Stock oil pump.

The total price, including all gaskets, worked out a little more than the summit kit.

Hope that helps.

That kit would work, either that or the one you found at PAW should do the job.
