hello!

I've seen lots of threads on drivetrain/ride conversions, but I'm assuming yah'll want more power than the little four banger puts out.. so the question is what power-plants have you folks been replacing it with? (I've seen the list of what bolts in but which ones are "preferred"?)

Ford 302 or 5.0 as its called now
Lighter narrower than smallblock chev
Distributer up front on ford helps with engine placement
In smaller engine compartments
There is lots of options in swaps depends what you want it for
And what you are swapping it into

Big blocks pffft search Big Bang theory hot rod magazine
Over 1100 horse out of a stock ls gm they thought it was a 5.3
Turns out it was 4.8 or whatever the small one is
More than the big block in my wagon makes with the 400shot of nitrous
