    well now i have the cam, double roller chain set, timing cover, balancer, oil pan and water pump back on with all new seals and gaskets. i also got the efi parts swaped from the OEM lower intake to the edelbrock lower.
    its raining its ass off now and im tired of walking in water and mud so i will put the heads and intake on tomorrow.
    maybe i will get some new pics tomorrow.

    well i got the oil system primed and should have flywheel bolts tomorrow. i was putting the upper intake together and wanted to know am i better off blocking the coolant from flowing to the TB spacer? it sounds like an easy answer to keep heat from the intake but will this cause a CEL with the EGR?
    what spark plugs are best for a stock/mild 302?

    also the van i got the motor from had what looked like a condensor mounted with the coil, if i use the van dizzy should i use this too or is it not needed?

    I have never bypassed my T/B due to ever changing weather in Texas.

    As far as spark plugs go...I have had the best luck with Autolite copper plugs in my cars.

    WOW, its so much better with the engine in the car:nice: . im fighting vac lines but the first thing to take care of is the bottom so i cut the patch for my hacked trans crossmember support today and i will bring my welder home and weld it up tomorrow. once that is done i can put the trans in and put the exhaust together. once it is back on the ground i will hit the under hood fight. i will try to get some more pics after the bottom is bolted up.

    well today was good, i went to the carlisle pa spring show and got some parts and one wicked damn sunburn. i got a two speed E-Fan with shroud for $10, a used K&N wannabe filter for $5 and a new ac delete kit from mustangs unlimited for $38. i put the ac delete kit on and welded a bracket on my crossmember this afternoon to fix the hack jod someone did to it. i will try to get some pics when the trans is in.
