    I just bought an 86....but i wanna know how easy it would be to go four eye to two eye, would a 87 body kit bolt up, or do i have to drill. either way is fine....or would it simply not fit. And any suggestions for a 3.8 to 5.0 conversion kit....ecm, and harness.

    Help appriciated,

    Yeah you might want to reconsider the swap, there are people who kill people over this, hope you have a lot of ammo!

    It should be a direct fit, or atleast be pretty basic.
