Re: anybody got any info on putting a 302 in a 80 cj
He means do a search HERE. On this BBS. It HAS been covered a bazillion times. Actually it has become the "swap of the moment". Change your search to 5.0 swap, and you'll have better luck. And it's the same motor/block.
Personally, I'd push for the 5.0 EFI swap. I went the 302 route first, and adding the EFI was NOTHING. Although my brother did save the day. I did most of the work, and he cleaned up the wiring.
What transmission do you have? The T150 or T176 makes the 302 swap a lot easier.
