  1. If you need to find dress-up parts for 302s it's one of the more common swaps in Australia!

    Love the rpu. Did you weld up your valvecovers or someone else? Always loved those t-bird covers. And what waterpump are you running?

  4. Looks like most of you are running cross steer. Probably going to try side steer for the look. Any experience on that?

    running a spal electric pusher fan in front of the radiator due to having no room behind , and running the sno white waterpump conversion which saves about 2 and a half inches of room , it utilizes an opel gt waterpump and adapter to go to the timing cover , runs good and cool fan hardly ever kicks on , just been too busy with work to have any free time to make more adapters for the valve covers

    "side steer" or traditional steering works fine when properly set up, but cross steer is nice
