Did you do the basic swap or did you get port and polish or cams? How much stronger does it feel?

i just did the basic swap my self. but what a differance it makes, it has so much more high end power. right before i started it up i was worried that i was goign to screw up my motor. it is a bummer that i have to wait untill spring to really drive it..... damn salted roads we dont even have any snow yet here in MN... WTF?

if i would of had all the parts that i needed it would of been about a 2 day project but it took me about 2 weekends because of ordering parts. it is not that hard just take your time taking it apart so that you rember how to put it back together. good luck on the swap you are going to love it

no the swap wasnt to hard except the damn dipstick tube... word of advise buy a flexable dipstick tube. after trying for 2 hours to get the factory one in i went on summit and bought one. the haynes manual is very helpful because it shows you some of the little stuff that is dumb. i also did a google search on the swap before i started to get a good idea of the process, it isnt that hard if you take your time.... i also asked a few fellow Sn95 members for help also. once you get started you can alway ask me questions about the swap. you will love it

if you are going to romeo to windsor or vise versa then you will need a few extra bolts ad diffrent valve covers. if not the olny extra thing that most kits dont include is the timing cover gaskets. you can buy the for head changing kit which will include head and exhaust gaskets and head bolts. most of the other little parts are listed in the stickie at the top of the page.
