listin to this chit

ok the engine i got in my car is blown its a 1985 150hp 302. my dad wants me to rebuild that. it needs new bearings, crank ground,and bored. i can get a 1988 5.0 HO for 450 another 180 gives me a lifetime garentee on it. does anyone know anyway i can convence him that rebuilding my engine and putting it back in there is a stupid thing to do.

Well, it will cost more to rebuild than to buy a running engine... Plus, the 85 302 has crappy heads and intake compared to the 87+ motors...

Of course, the 85 is carbed and the 88 your are looking at is fuel injected which would require you to get a fuel injection computer and wiring harness to use or switch over parts to carb it.

Take a look at my sig.. I might have something you would be interested in. Its a completely rebuilt carbed 5.0 with double the horsepower than your 85 currently has. Its worth checking up on.

wonder if that would void the warranty he wants to pay extra to get?? :shrug:

Wouldn't think that it would void it. Carb or fuel injection are just a means to get the air/fuel into the the engine. Should have no bearing on warranty.
