Hello All, I have a 99 GT that has been through it’s paces. Love the car, strong 70k junkyard motor on 202k chassis. I have recently found an 82 3.3L i6 (C4?) auto trans fox. I’m still getting familiar with the platform, but I want it to be a reliable car that could take me across California or even across the country. I would like to swap a 302 EFI and manual trans, but with all the time and money that would take, would a new edge swap be within reason?

Essentially I’d like to keep the fox as stock-ish as possible, same hood, cluster and interior. What do y’all think? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Stangnet!!

A 5.0 swap will also require a new K member iirc. I believe the I6 K member is an oddball and is unique to the I6 car. One from a 4, V6, or V8 will all work though, so finding a replacement is fairly easy. I'm fairly sure the K member from a New Edge will also swap, but I don't have experience with that.
