also, the guy i bought the motor from is a friend and told me the motor would be good to go so he's going to be buying any replacement bottom end parts.. so if its bad bearings he'll buy new bearings and have it checked out.. if its a new cam then he'll get that too.. new cam is only $140 at vatozone.. and ive got a friend who works there so i can get 20% off.. its a Melling brand OE replacement

the cool part though is we went from an OBDI motor to OBDII.. now there isnt a whole lot different, i did a lot of research before the swap though.. the 96 and up blocks are the strongest, they have stronger ribbing in the casting and have a girdle that supports the main bearings..

the 0630 head (96-99) is on par with my old head (7120) in stock form.. though the 7120 can be ported and polished to yield higher flow.. the 0630 head had less roughness in the casting so it flows pretty good.. IMO its the last good head they made.. the 0331 head that came after had exhaust ports half the size.. for stupid emissions requirements to help heat up the cat quicker.. they compensated with the newly designed intake manifold (Which ive thought of putting on my motor when i get a new header)

however the main difference with wiring became the water temp sensor.. we had to do some creative thinking to get that working.. my old head was provisioned for the sensor, the new head isnt.. (the OBDII ECU gets the temp from the thermostat housing, and then feeds that info to the gauge)
