Thanks for the compliment. You're thinking about doing what I went through with my 78 car last winter, mine had a 6 in it too and I've dropped in a 351W engine. My car now is apart as I'm working on stage 2 building a 408W to drop in.On 2002-12-06 03:00, carl86gt wrote:
hot damn! you know your ****. lol, thanks for shedding light on the subject. I'm looking at a 76 two door granada. It's clean as a whistle, but has a 250 straight 6 in her, what is needed to put a 351 in it?
I own a 1980 granada its my project car im fixing to do the 302 swap as it came with the inline six i was wondering what transmission i would need to look for and also if i would need to replace parts on the rear end die to the fact im going to have alot more torqueGranada/Monarch vehicles debut in 1975 and were chassis wise based on Fairlane/Maverick setups. I read somewhere that the wheelbase for 75-80 models were the same as a Maverick but the body are longer in overall length. They had an upper/lower control arm setup in the frt. with the spring/shock assy. on the upper control arm similiar to early Mustangs, that's one reason why disc brake swaps are popular using granada stuff for early mustangs.
75-77 model granada/monarch had single round hdlts. In 78-80 they went to a single retangular hdlt. setup. They were avail. from 75-77 with 200-250 cid 6 cyl. engines or 302-351W V8 engines. In 78-80 they only came with the 250 6 or the 302 V8. Trannies ranged from 3 sp., 3 sp. o/d, 4 sp. manuals to C4 autos, some were pan-fill, others case fill. You could also get one bare-bones or optioned up with every thing possible in the day and they also came in 2 or 4 dr. body styles.
From 81-83 they were based on the fox body setup which I'm not too familiar with. Those of us that are into Granada/Monarch cars feel the 75-80 vintage cars are the real thing. MO.
Check out my youtube for a few ideas on a 302 swap from inline 6 .<iframe width="560" height="315" src="I own a 1980 granada its my project car im fixing to do the 302 swap as it came with the inline six i was wondering what transmission i would need to look for and also if i would need to replace parts on the rear end die to the fact im going to have alot more torque
