putting a 302 in my 1999 V6

A buddy of min has a rebuilt carbureted 302 V8. I was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas about what I need to do as far as suspension and transmission wehn replacing my engine. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

To run around PATS & computer.

But the auto tranny is electronically controlled, so you're still going to have to deal with it -if you've got an auto.

You're also going to need to swap the rear end, and the transmission, on a 99 -in 01 they got the same tranny as the GT. prior to 01 they got a lighter version with weaker gears.

You'll also have to swap the suspension, and you "should" swap out the brakes . . .

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

carbs suck though. always having to tweak them. You can get rid of pats with a tune as well
