Took about a week. But that's with running into balancing issues and waiting for parts from Summit. All in all, three days. It will take you longer because I already had the motor mounts from the previous 302. And it's dark, but I will post pictures in my build thread tomorrow when I get off work!

I think my whole system is toast. The pipes rusted away and I think the cats are long past due. Isn't backfire a sign of shot cats?

I needed a new harmonic balancer and flywheel to balance out the crank. And I've heard gen 3 swaps are the easiest. And I had everything ready to go from the old 302 that came out of it.

Today I did the dual ignition plug mod. I've felt some positive changes already.

The 4cyl have two spark plugs per cyl. Both plugs don't fire on the ign stroke. One does the other fires on the exhaust to help burn up any fuel.

What he did was move the wires on the coil pack to have them both fire on the ign stroke

I started sanding her down and reprinting her. Ran out of paint so I had to stop.

Gutted the rear axle for a re-gear to 4.10 from 3.45 and to install a Eaton limited slip in the old Ranger.
