Under Bonnet Work

My XC has the Still has the "original" 302 Clevo in it...

Its felling a little tired... probly needs a Reco...

I Need Suggestions on what can be done...

Is EFI worth the Extra $$$

im honestly walking around in the dark here

i want it done be the end of this year... would luv it done tomorrow... but the paint an wheels come first

Any Suggestions Guys N Gurls... any Ball PArk Figures i might be able to work with... im clueless at the moment..


Cheers

If you have the money and can get compliance.. go for a new EFI motor.. quieter and tons of power.

Else.. go to town on the motor.. 4 barrel, cam, exhaust :)

Just make sure you have no rust and smick paint job.. make it look good as well as go good :)

I've looked at getting a EL XR8 Windsor motor for it... was nearly 4 Grand... just for the motor...

so add complience and adjustments, engineering, yadda yadda... ill be looking into the $6-8000 mark...

better to work the Origonal Clevo and inject that i recon...

not to mention i get to KEEP the Origonal motor.. Yaaayyyy

i could even Recon it and SuperCharge it for under $8000...

Pssssst.... I've been Busy Digging since i posted this

Hmmm... what to do....

if only i was MADE of money
