My buddy has a 5.0 with 330k on the shortblock and it's been making 278rwhp since 188k. They are a more durable motor then you think.
A 5.0 fox does not run 14.2 stock. 14.9 maybe. The majority of them that are stock with over 150k miles might pull at 15.2. That being said, it is very possible to get a stock motor 5.0 fox in the 12s with a real good suspension and the right gear and driver.
