Engine Swap Time!
 
Well my spectacular 2.5L is finally getting a replacement. I got a hold of a 63 CJ-5, so I'm taking the vin off of that and registering my TJ under it (cheaper registration, insurance, and no emissions hassles :flipoff: ). I've got a hold of a '68 302 block for free. I went ahead and picked up a 5.0 HO intake from a 93 Mustang past wednesday. Scored the upper and lower intake, throttle body, and all new top end sensors for 20 bucks! gotta love ebay :D . I've also got a brand new BeCool all aluminum 4-core radiator (big one for F-body application), 22 gallon fuel cell, 180Amp GM 1-wire alternator, and a Dana 20 which will all be installed. I'll be teaming it up with an AOD transmission (and a bigass tranny cooler of course). I should have the engine dissasembled this weekend - can't wait to start bolting stuff on! I'm "predicting" the final cost will be somewhere around 2400 bucks by the time I'm done, making it a nice summer project I think. I'll probably also throw an A/C back on there now that I will have the power to run one on the street. Should make things more fun.

But anyways - I'll be keeping you guys posted :p

Sounds like a great summer project! Good luck!

You need to convince my roommate that he needs to drop the 302 out of his early 90's ford, put something big in that, and give me the 5.0 that it's in it!!! :D

Mi no comprende? I've been screwing over Indianas BMV for years with little tricks and I've never heard about anything like this... aside from V8 swaps in cars registered as 4 cyls.
