Right now I am trying to decide about swapping out my engine with a 302. But I am trying to get a good picture of what I need to look for
What I think I know so far:
1.) I need to talk to Eugene Phillips in Pasadena about a 302 cross member that he makes.
2.) I need to switch out my rear end to a 9” rear end.
3.) C-4 transmission with a short tail needed.
4.) Might need a bigger dog house from a 60’s chevy van.
What I don’t know so far:
1.) What year 302 fits my van best? Can it be a newer 302 or should it be a 60’s or 70’s engine?
2.) How hard is it to rebuild a junkyard 302 for a noob?
3.) Will I need to shorten my drive train?
There will be more questions to come. If you have any input about these questions or more things to consider (which I know theres a lot more) please post it. Thank you.
