Default quick question about explorer 302.

Is it possible to swap them over too a distributor type ignition system instead of coil pack because I want to run a carb and lose the computer if possible

Yes, a conventional 302 distributor will bolt in place of the Explorer's Synchronizer/Cam Position Sensor.

Sweet! Thanks both of y'all I've been making a list of all I need and the expo 302 is the easiet new one I can find but I want to run a t5 with it and don't want to try and get standalone harness for the engine so figured it would be easier to just remove the computer from the equation
