heres the deal. a guy i know is giving away a running 305. the only reason he took it out of his truck is because he put a 350 in it. Its free 305 i just wanna know is it worth it. i know its a chevy motor and i will have to get a chevy trans. its got a carb so no injection. i would just have to fab some engine mounts and what ever else i needed. what kinda other stuff will i need?
Believe it or not, putting a FI 302 in would be much easier as there are swap kits with motor mounts out there.
The SB Chevy is CHEAP to build compared to anything else out there. For an enging with almost 50 years of history, its hardly changed overthe years.
Your lookin at a LOT of work. I cant think of what all would be needed to connect that tranny ( th350/th400 ) to your present transfercase.. its a mission though. Its not impossible, anything can be fabricated to bolt in.
man we just built a 305 in autotech and put it into the truck and it ran pretty good not like a 302 tho with some goodies.. i would just do a 302 and sell the 305! make some money if your friend is just going to give it to you...
well theres nothing wrong with a carburetor but, first, its probably not legal, second, with the amount of time and fabwork it would take to make it work, youd be better off with a ford V8, since swap kits are made for it, or hell, just fork out the cash for a supercharger and leave it at that
bro... that would take sooooo much money... omg... i wish i had money. anyways.... if you wanna drop that engine into a truck, my suggestion would be to do it to and older truck that doesnt cost you a lot. i wouldnt wanna do it to a truck thats 4 years old. but hey.. it is your truck, and what cops dont know wont hurt 'em!
well ill prob go with a 302 and build from there ive been looking around. the 305 was just an idea since it was free. but i didnt like the idea of dropping a chevy motor into a ford. the only reason i dont wanna do the EFI is because of computer tuning and stuff like that. but looking around ive seen whole computers to swap out and make the engine run with our trucks so i may just do that or find someone that can rig the harness ive seen a company do that fo hemi swaps into jeeps so i may give them a call. they do all the wiring and i just hook it up.
