    Do you have the K-member already? How about the brake booster? New steering shaft? Just a few of the things I've found necessary going from a pushrod to mod motor...

    you got a donor car? Thats what you'll need, you have to swap over the WHOLE DRIVETRAIN and all associated wiring harnesses...good luck though.

    I know a 4V is sweet but going to a larger pushrod (5.0/5.8 ) would be much easier and cheaper wouldn't it?

    But good luck on the swap...i hope you have a donor.

    sorry this has taken so damn long, but im at the stage now where the engine/tranny are in, had to get a 96 GT PCM and wiring harness for my auto tranny, and SCT chip for tuning, I have pics for my setup as well....and yes, this is a long long swap, would take less time if ppl were honest about what they know about these swaps, and also sent the right parts halfway across the damn globe lol, heres some pics
