I've been wanting a V8 swap for a while. After talking with my friend who dropped an LQ4 into his 87 Chevy, he said it would have been better to do a crate motor.

I'm thinking of going that route, crate fuel injected 5.0, computer and tranny included and everything.

Then I can run dedicated wiring for gauges and accessories
