    I just purchased a 66' F100 as a little shop truck project with a 60's or 70's 302 in it currently. I am planning on buying a Ford Racing Crate 302 (340HP) and putting that in it once I sell my FoxBody and get some things buttoned up on the truck. I was wondering if I purchase a Intake and a four barrel for my new crate motor could I install it on my 60's 302 until the crate, trans, and fuel system arrived? is there any differences on the two motors that would inhibit me from being able to do that?

    Thanks, Austin

    A 302 is a 302. The intake will bolt to a 69 just the same as a 97. There are no differences from one to the other that will stop you from swapping. You may need a new throttle linkage bracket or something ancillary but that should be it. Gaskets... Don't forget those lol
