So i have decided to go ahead and do a carbureted small block chevy swap into my series I 240Z. As always i will be doing all the work in my garage with the help of friends.
First My motor:
I'm hoping to get around 250+hp and 300tq at the wheels.
freshly rebuild Chevy 5.7L SBC 350.
Block has been bored 40 over
An excellent set of 882 heads
Edelbrock RPM airgap intake
Holley 600cfm carb
New Comp 268 cam kit.
New flat top pistons providing a 9.5:1 compression ratio
M/T valve covers
New Black Coated Steet Rod Hugger Headers
I will be using a World Class T5 out of a 5.0L mustang. I have rebuilt the transmission and done a few upgrades to build in a lil extra strength into the T5.
New shift forks
New shift fork inserts
heavy duty cluster gear support plate
New Input Shaft/4th Gear Bearing & Race
New Output Shaft Bearing & Race (85-95)
heavy duty input Bearing Retainer
Third Chevy SBC to Ford T5 Coupling:
In order to couple a chevy motor to a ford transmission i an using the bell housing for a chevy WC T5 transmission and a custom adapter plate.
Again to run a chevy motor with a ford transmission i an running a flywheel and pressure plate from a F-body camaro and the clutch is from a 5.0L ford mustang.
I'll be using a JTR kit for the engine mounts etc.
I have the drive shaft from the mustang and once i get the engine and transmission transplanted into the car; Ill get a final measurement for the drive shaft and have it cut and balanced.
I got the hood and the exhaust off the car to get ready to pull the old 2.4L L6 motor.
