|TJCOUNTRYBOY||I was thinking the 302 for a couple reasons. everyone is putting the 350 in jeeps but i dont want to change the front axle to passenger drop and with the 302 i could mate it with a ax15 to start with.im thinking im going to do the ax15 swap and later down the road was going to do the motor swap. i would love to do some crazy build like the vette motor but im doing this myself and dont have bottomless pockets. i know the 350 is easy to find parts for but so is the 302. im just really on the fence on this. thanks for everyones feed back|

302's are cheap to build too. yes with a 350 there are a million packages out there, heads, cams, etc...but let's not forget the 302/5.0 motors are plentiful and modded to hell and back with the mustang history.
that being said, i'd do an lsx motor swap. been done a good deal before and will be done again.

|Raiderfan001||350 is a no brainer imo. Cheaper to build and more power.|

|TJCOUNTRYBOY||I was thinking 350 for a real long time im really just trying to make up my mind and get this project started|

I would like to do the same motor swap when my 4 banger gives up. Prob swap in auto and change t case. As I understand it you have to meet emissions of which ever is newer, vehicle or motor.
I have a 78 CJ7 with a 302 and I would not use anything else.

|tallzdatank||you could use an older motor as far as I know, it just needs to meet emissions for 1998. so you'd need to find whatever was required for a 1998 and ensure the engine could meet that.|

|Stuxtruth||do a carb'd 302 you wont have to worry about wiring|

|Boston_Bruins30||Also check out pirate4x4 for build threads. There's a bunch I've been looking at|

|TJCOUNTRYBOY||was thinking of swapping out the ax5 for the ax15 for now then later swapping in the motor. thanks for the link|

|tbensor||You may also consider the chevy 4.8 or 5.3 motor|

Spend some time on this link if you haven't already...it lays out lots of different options and considerations.

ok so i have a 98 2.5 and just blew my cylinder head im looking to do a 302 swap with the ax15 ( i know i have a ax5) one thing that worries me is the wiring ? Has anyone done this swap . i also would like to pass DEQ witch from my understanding i have to use a 98 or newer motor which would mean getting a motor from a explorer. really would like to either find some good write ups or some personal experience.
