    Looking for advice how to pair 4 spd 223 transmission to 302. Know about motor mount and other problems. Would it be worth using that 4 spd or swapping the transmission altogether?

    Wondering what it would take to fit a 223 4spd motor swap to a 302. I am aware of motor mounts and those kind of things that won’t fit. Would it be worth mating 302 to 4 spd or changing the transmission as a whole?

    Hello and good morning all! I just snagged up a GREAT deal on a BEAUTIFUL 1988 LX yesterday. Curious as to what you guys think she will hit on the dyno as far as HP and TQ and also what you think she would run in the 1/8 and 1/4. I will update post with results as I am hitting a dyno later...

Ever since I wired everything up and finally got it running and idling it’s been overheating. It runs and after about 5-7 minutes it gets up to 180 and then continuously goes higher...

    hi everyone my name is Jarod and I am almost 16. I got my first classic a 1964 falcon 2dr sedan. I love it but the stock 170ci i6 makes only 100 hp gross. I just think that's to low for me.

    Hi everybody, just was wanting to get some opinions on this truck I am looking at. It is a 1990 F150 4X4 302 with 188,000 kms on it. Doesn't appear to have any rust on the body. Is it worth waiting for an I6 to come along instead? I know they have been known to be more durable engines but this...
