Re: 302/T5 swap
I'm in the same boat as you. The only info i've gotten is using a 5 speed from an F150.
I'm reasonably sure a new hole would have to be cut for the shifter versus the factory floor location. However I'm still unclear on that.
For simplicity you could put in an 85 mustang motor. It was first year of roller cam and last year for a 4 barrel carb. That is my angle i'm thinking on. Drop in a wicked cam and gt-40 heads from a v8 exploder a good aftermarket intake and carb you'd have one mean 302.
1994 sun faded (New Mexico/Texas truck) maroon, regular cab, 2.3 5 speed & 3.73's. Bought w/ 227k and climbing.
