Found the 302 in a 97 explorer! gt40p heads and intakes.... took 4 hrs to pull with the help of a friend.

pulled out

Painted block but I still need to take off the accessory brackets and clean them. I had the upper and lower intakes sent out to be hot tanked waiting for them to come back...

Just a good picture with the 302 sitting next to it waiting to be ready. lol

Well know that I am looking more into it I mainly need the c101 connector which I need to look but I think I have? I'm thinking there might be other pieces I need from it but I won't know until I'm there.

Opinions! After the engine is in this car I am going to work on the appearance. Don't get me wrong I am a big fan of a factory paint car and I was going to have it redone in the arktisblau metallic but after having it for a little bit know I'm not sure if I like the stock color it's a little dull. I am thinking about changing the color to something a little nicer looking. Possibly other factory bmw colors...What are your opinions on this? Thanks

I'm partial to green cars, especially with brown interiors.
