Like the 3.5 now?

I might talk to Dan soon if I want to get rid of my 2.7 and drop in (hopefully) another H.O. engine.

Nice swap ! I will(maybe) do this swap if I don't actually just get a real R/T and sell this one to my mom because she should be back from Ireland next summer.

I am jealous. How much did you get that 3.5 for? Glad everything went well.

Damn Ali, it about time you created a thread on this! Nice pics, my furry faced friend.

You could have left out the drunk pic though. BTW I was not drunk, only toasty.

pm 32intrepid he'll tell you how much it runs.

This motor is the SHIAT!!! sooo much smoother than the 2.7... and the flowmaster makes it sound a hell of a lot better than the 2.7. I guess those who are attending the 27th michigan/ohio meet will get to see/hear.

Nice. I'm waiting on three hoses for my swap to be complete and to hear the sucker run.

I don't know that I ever WANT to do another one in my lifetime...but I think Dru is going to be chomping at the bit to get his swap done if mine starts up and runs well.

It's the best investment IMO if you plan on keeping your car for a long time, adds a little bit of power too

Exhaust vid (hopefully) will be provided by dudley again on the 27th

If I remember right, he said during the meet (when I was up there) that he was going to try and make a custom intake idea using the foglight holes.
