Going with a modern block (LSX or otherwise) would require new adapter and new motor mount locations correct? I feel like the car is so close to drivable should press forward with gen 1, otherwise, its a longer term project and if were to change mount location and adapter, would be inclined to change diff and tranny as well.
Could I find the right bump stick for the 350/290 crate that put the torque down under 300, and still give me ~300+ horseys at 4-6k? Any recommendations?
Thinking 600-650 cfm carb, ram horn manifolds (the engine is in the middle of the car).
Naw Mike.There are conversion engine mounts from first gen to LSx which are a simple bolt on to the first gen's.So that should be no problem.
Is this a stick shift??. I'm not familiar with your V8's conversion's name.
