You could at least start the engine to make sure it works.

Yeah, but if it blows up then you're just creating extra work for yourself.

It's an 8.8" rear end isn't it?... It will be fine for a V8, especially one on street tires that's not making huge power. And it's not that uncommon of a swap, lol.

A T-6? What kind of transmission is that?

Really, how much would you want for that 302 harness shipped to sudbury ontario
Sorry, I didn't check back til now. If you still need it, I don't want much for it. Just shipping. Did you buy your friends motor?

yeah I bought my friends engine, he ended up giving me his harness from the Grenada thats working out fine...
The T-6 is a 6-speed automatic tranny. I did want to use a T5 but thats gonna be a pain to do a conversion...

It's a Tremec T6 six speed auto. Nice tranny.

I would have kept it auto too since it's not set up for a clutch and stuff just to keep things simple.

Yeah yeah I know its an old thread. But its mine, and im not gonna make a new one just to say this:
She's done! $7,300 later and ALOT of hours in the shop. Sure turns some heads.. As far as the headers, they were (very) custom. We didn't have to mod the firewall. Just a custom K-member.
Still has the stock rear end, havnt had it over 120km/h and to be honest, I dont want to till the new rear end is done
