302 in my v6

So I managed to royally f*ck my v6, so im thinking if shoving a 70's era 302 in the car, now the question is, will my 5 speed bolt to the motor? If not what tranny would be recommended, I already have plans to buy and install a 9inch.

I know it won't bolt in without any custom work but why you want a old school 302. If any motor swap I like the new 5.0 engine and they sell kits for those engines

That would be awesome, ive got a motor I need to finish and plan to buy the rear end soon, the tranny that is in the car now is in really good shape but not sure if it can hold up to the amount of power

Re: 302 in my v6

the 3.8 motors and the 302's have the same SBF trans bolt pattern, both manual and auto from a V6 will bolt up but the input shaft has to be dealt with

what exactly happened to the sixer?

A 9" rear is a waste of money in a mild to wild street build.. Weight to strength is in favor of the 8.8, also the 8.8 is much easier to install.

I trusted a friend of mine to hook up the nos and he did something wrong and I pressed the button and BOOM, hood flew up and fire spitting from the engine and intake and throttle body and no longer attached to the motor

With the computer, wiring harness, vaccuum lines, all of the sensors, etc I would NOT do a swap like this without the donor car..

That's why its rewarding to swap. You'll learn more **** than the guy who just went out and bought what you had.

I agree with dead spot. If that motor isn't built its not a whole lot more hp stock than your v6. It will have a good amount of torque more. But not worth dropping a 9" in.

If you are gonna go efi you have a lot of work cut out for you. Your v6 trans has a bigger bell housing and input shaft I believe. But it will work. But the down fall is its not as strong. To use a v8 trans you will need a v8 bell and may may have persuade the crossmenber to fit.

I haven't personally done the swap but this is just bits and pieces I have read about it.

The motor is going to be carbed, and the reason behind the 9inch is cause this motor will be pumping about 500-550 ponies, this engine will be far from stock, I still might go with a 351

If your gonna push in/over the 500 range your gonna need a support system to keep the block together. Are you going F/I ?

Sounds like you plan on having an animal on your hands.

500 hp is tough without forced induction, unless your spraying. 400 is even tough to get n/a on a 302.

With a fully built 302 you can get thise numbers but the cost is hella high, ive never been one to but a ford in a chevy and what nits but there are a few guys in a local mustang club that have ls1 in their mustangs and making huge power, so im torn on what to do, all I know is that I need to get.this done fast and semi cheap cause the only other car I have is a van and I hate vans

Imo its not possible or practical without at least stroking it and beefing it up. You would have to bump the compression ratio so high. You will need to run high octane fuel. And have a very large cam and heads which would kill the low end torque. I would just get a nice top end kit and call it a day imo.

Re: 302 in my v6

btw what year is your car? hopefully a 94-95 otherwise it'll be a bi**h to drop a 302/351 based motor in because the k-member is different

also, you DO NOT want a factory 302 block with 500 hp they will literally split in half

Re: 302 in my v6

hmm notice the break between 95 and 96 having different selections, that may give you increased clearance to work around when making the mounts but it'll still require some fabrication to adapt it, i mean don't get me wrong it's been done, they have them in the new edge cars just a little more work
