Project plan, 3.8L out, 351W in.. Now my question is, are there conversion kits to put this engine in? Is it hard to put a manual tranny in, is there room for the clutching? If I mild/mid horsepower it, what all will have to be done to the body??

Vehicle is a 85 Tbird, plans for a 88 front clip..

Thanks

Is there anything that you have to do to the block to fit the clutching assembly, I'm used to dealing with Manual clutchs which have the clutch "swing arm" attached to the frame and block. I'm assuming the TBC uses a hydralic system.?

Peerfect.. I'm figuring for the price of $300 for the car, and find a running 351W for about the same, just to find a tranny, regardless will probibly have to get it rebuilt anyway. Still tempted to try an auto.. But hard pressed on that one..

Get motor mounts for a 302, get pedals from a Mustang(cable clutch)and a T5 from a V8 Mustang. I'm running an 88 Turbo Coupe with 351W and T5. So you could say, I've been there, done that. I'll help anyway I can, just ask.
