    I am doing the swap now. Just pulled the old 302 and am in the process of stripping and cleaning the engine bay to drop in the engine. I am glad to give you as much info, costs, support as I go along. I should be finished with the conversion by mid-Jan. Doing it by myself, and Colorado cold slow things down a bit but I want to do it right the first time. Good luck, it has been a blast so far.

    Hey thats my engine! Well old set up. Where'd you get it from? :nice: Thanks for posting it.

    The first picture is from when I was getting ready to pull it all out and the second one is one I first put it in.

    Notice how it was as shiny on the first pic since I left it sitting for 8 months without even opening the hood, I would start it maybe every other week.

    I see the cone filters out in the open. Wind from the fan is not messing with the MAF?

    Never had a problem. Maybe since I was using an electric fan that I only turned on after I turned off the car. Never had cooling issues :nice:

    I actually had problems getting the car up to temp with the 185 thermostat I even replaced thinking it was that but nope still cooled like a champ with no fan and a piece of double sided aluminum insulation blocking the radiator. I wonder why, could never figure it out in the 3 months that I drove the car. My upper intake would get warm only after I turned off the car. :shrug:

    Hakan is the man when it comes to friendly help. :)

    He helped me in different steps through my conversion.

    Thanks again
