I have a 94 3.8 V6 w/auto that my son abandoned on my property. The engine doesn't run. I was thinking about converting it to a V8. Some questions: Is the manul trans xmember different than the automatic? Do I need one from a V8 car or will any manual trans xmember work? I have tons of spare 351W parts and it wouldn't take much to build one into a running engine; haven't decided yet. If I build a 351 based engine then I'll need a TKO, which of course is not cheap, but if I go with a 5.0 based engine, I will need a complete engine. I do have the front accessory brackets already. Since this is a toy for autox and track use only, if I go with the 351, I'll probably punt and go with a carb to make it easy. I know I need to upgrade the rear to an 8.8. Thans in advance for any and all advice!
