It wouldn't be so bad to buy a late 80s 5.0 and try to stuff it into that and go EFI. We'll see.
That's what I thought. I know it ain't easy, and it'd be a BIG tear up. But if I'm going to all this effort anyway, I'd rather end up with something unique, and there are lots of guys with 351s in foxes. We'll see I guess.atlblue2000 said:A carbd 351 in the 00 would rock.

Heh, that would definitely be neat. It's still at least a year off for me, at least. I'm pretty sure to build this engine the way I want is going to cost at least 2k, maybe 3-4k, so I pretty much have to spread it out over a year or two.atlblue2000 said:I tell ya what Dan... we'll both do carbd V8 swaps together. In fact, I'll let you lead and then follow suit based on what you discover. It would be neat if we popped up after a short hiatus with carbd V8s in our '00s wouldn't it?? Of course, you definitely have a handful of cubes on me...
I suppose that leaves me with no other choice but to nitrous the piss out of her, huh?
DanM said:BTW, I'm gonna document the whole build. Mostly for my own interest. Here's where it'll go:
Not much there so far, but stay tooned. I'm going to post up little helpful bits of information I've learned along the way that may be helpful to other ppl. (like the little section on 351W cams)
