Alright, so I picked this up last week to use for commuting to put less miles on my truck. It's originally a 5.0 5 speed car that has been converted to a 2.3n/a aod car I checked the vin, it is an original 5.0. So I'm looking for a little advice on it. My plan is to put a carb 302 in, talked myself out of a 351 for fuel economy sake. The car still has a clutch pedal in the floor, so I'm debating T5 or aod. I'm not going crazy with the motor, want to get it around 280 at the wheels. Will a factory aod hold? I know T5s are weak, but I'm not talking a lot of power to the ground either. Which would be the better option for mileage and longevity? Oh, the car does have 3.73 gears, subframe connectors, and a bbk lowering kit. Thanks!
