SVT built its first-generation Lightnings on the 1987 to 1995 Ford truck platform, and only made minor adjustments for the three years the truck was available. For 1994, exterior changes included a center, high-mounted brake lamp and black aero mirrors. Like most vehicles, the Lightning switched to more environmentally friendly R-134A refrigerant in 1994, after using R12 Freon the first year of production. Production totals for the first generation are: 5,276 in 1993, 4,007 in 1994, and 2,280 in 1995. The color breakdown is as follows: 2,691 black and 2,585 red trucks in 1993; 1,382 black, 1,165 red and 1,460 white trucks in 1994; and in 1995, Ford built 824 black trucks, 695 in red and 761 in white. Total production for first-generation Lightnings was 11,563.Engine
SVT built the Lightning with a high-output V-8 based on the 5.8-liter, 351-cu.in. engine. To ensure you are buying a Lightning and not just an F-150 with Lightning accoutrements, look for the "R" code in the VIN. The engine had 8.8:1 compression, a 4-inch bore and 3.50-inch stroke. The stock hydraulic, flat-tappet camshaft specifications are: duration at 0.50; intake 200 degrees and exhaust 214 degrees; advertised duration is 260 degrees intake and 274 degrees exhaust.SVT installed GT-40-type cast-iron cylinder heads, a tuned intake manifold, tubular stainless-steel headers, larger intake (1.84-inch) and exhaust valves (1.54-inch), high-flow ports, high-rate capacity fuel pump and injectors, revised combustion chambers, a redesigned air filter for improved airflow and a true dual exhaust system.Other upgrades for the basic 5.8-liter V-8 included high-silicon aluminum hypereutectic pistons, a special camshaft for optimized valve tuning and a cartridge-type oil-to-water exchanger to control oil temperatures. Engineers also programmed the engine's computer control to deliver crisp throttle response and acceptable fuel economy. Lightning output resulted in a then very healthy 240hp at 4,200 rpm and 340-lbs.ft. of torque at 3,200 rpm. The Lightning distributor uses a special cap with aluminum contacts and is the recommended cap for Lightnings. This cap is made of Rynite, which has high dielectric properties.This powerplant could produce 0-60 times of 7.2 seconds, 0-100 mph in 25.7 seconds and cover the quarter mile in 15.6 seconds at 87.4 mph. Not lightning fast, but the 351 had to propel almost 4,500 pounds. Top speed was electronically limited to 110 mph. EPA fuel economy leaves something to be desired at 12 mpg city and 16 mpg highway.Transmission
Only one transmission came with a Lightning: the E4OD electronically controlled four-speed automatic. For the Lightning application, engineers recalibrated it to handle the power and added an auxiliary oil cooler. A 4.0-inch diameter aluminum driveshaft combined sufficient torque capacity with minimal weight. This transmission featured automatic overdrive with brake/shift interlock and carried the following gear ratios: 1st: 2.71:1; 2nd: 1.54:1; 3rd: 1.00:1; 4th (OD): 0.71:1; and 2.18:1 in reverse.Differential
A 4.10:1-ratio rear axle housed a limited-slip differential inside a heavy-duty 8.8-inch rear end filled with synthetic lube. Ford factory lube is still available from a dealer, but is pricey at $17 per quart. The rear end housing also was Lightning-specific, featuring external cooling fins to reduce temperatures.Suspension & Brakes
The front suspension was standard F-150 fare, with twin I-beams. But a one-inch anti-roll bar kept things in check. The rear suspension included a rigid axle and leaf springs, as you'd expect from a pickup. The front shocks were Monroe Formula GP gas units with a 1.375-inch bore. Both front and rear anti-roll bars measured 1 inch and the entire suspension was lowered 2.5 inches from stock. The leaf springs contained a single leaf.Each Lightning had power steering, integral recirculating ball type with a 17.0:1 ratio. The steering system was reworked with a larger Pitman arm and improved-response power steering control valve.The braking system used power-assisted front disc/rear drum setup with anti-lock brakes on the rear wheels only. The rotors measured 11.72 inches and the rear drums 11.03 inches x 2.25 inches wide. These brakes brought a Lightning to a halt in 143 feet from 60 mph.Wheels & Tires
The Lightning came standard with 17-inch by 8-inch aluminum wheels with Firestone Firehawk GTA P275/60HR17 blackwall tires. The back spacing on stock Lightning wheels is 4.5 inches and the stock bolt pattern is 5 x 5.5 inches.Chassis
A full, ladder-welded steel frame, doubled at the kick-up and rails measuring 0.170 inches were used. Running under the chassis is a true dual stainless steel exhaust system with four catalytic converters, two mufflers and two tailpipes that exit behind the passenger wheel.The wheelbase measured 116.8 inches, the overall length (including the rear bumper) was 201.8 inches, ground clearance stood at 8.2 inches, front track 64.2 inches, rear track 63.5 inches, and curb weight hit the scale at 4,480 pounds. The Lightning's width measured 79 inches and overall height stood at 68.9 inches. Weight distribution measured 55.8 percent in front and 44.2 percent out back.Body
Like all Ford trucks at the time, the Lightning had a welded, all-steel body and featured a color-keyed rear step bumper. Buyers could order an optional color-keyed tubular bumper, as the original owner chose on our Buyer's Guide feature truck. The grille was color-keyed, along with the headlamp bezels and front bumper, which also included an integral air dam and fog lamps.If someone is selling a green 1993 Lightning, walk away, because only Raven Black and Bright Red, both without clearcoat, could be ordered. In 1994, Ebony, Crimson (a special red available only in 1994), and Oxford White were available, but now with clearcoat. All of the 1994 colors carried over for 1995.The dual fuel tanks held a whopping 34.7 gallons and today would cost around $100 to fill, even with regular unleaded. The maximum payload and trailer weights stood at 745 pounds and 5,000 pounds respectively. Other options include: electric side mirrors, trailer towing package, sliding rear windows and a security group with remote keyless entry/anti-theft system on 1994 and 1995 models only. The side rear-view mirrors are black only for the first generation
