Beleive it or not, I am considering it. The question is not addressed to this board, even though we all know that 2.3 people know everything about putting in a 5.0. My parents, whom have always stongly discouraged my tinkering and modification said "just throw in a v8 ALREADY!" today. So if I can continue to get thier encouragment, I may go forward with this project. If I were to follow through, I would probably steal the FRESHLY rebuilt AOD from the rotting cougar we have, and continue using my 7.5 with 3.73's. I think I could retain the weight advantage, and make some real power. Hell, I still have the nitrous kit. Add a 125 shot, and I could be running at least 13's (if the 7.5 didn't grenade!). What do you think?
