    My son and I just bought a '73 Scout II and want to consider a modern V8 swap. The 5.3L seems like the most available and a good choice. Can you recommend the most straight forward engine and tranny combo without adding a lot of headaches to this swap? We just want it to be a good daily driver, no rock climbing, etc. The Binder currently has all stock parts - 345V8, 4 spd, standard transfer case.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Be easier just to extend you injectors wires for the CPI you have now. To run the individual injectors. Search L31 Marine intake swap on google. Lots of info on this.

    Question for you.... Can I run my 98 Vortec 454 wire harness and computer on a 96 350 with an after market intake? My goal is to increase fuel so I can run more boost. Right now I'm limited by the 96 Vortec fuel system. It has a Whipple.

    That is funny... in the next week, I am going to check out a gig with a machine shop here in AFG... Heads up if you get to choose. Iraq is a hell of a lot nicer. This place is a mess.
