4bbl swap

Ok i have an 85 Grand Marquis with the 302 and the 2bbl Auotolite carb. What all would be involved in swapping in the 4bbl. Besides the carb itself and the manifold, would any of the electronics need to be changed?

Re: 4bbl swap

No your covered all the major parts that need changing, intake, carb, linkage (may or may not need changing), possably vacuum line to brake booster, fuel line from pump. All the parts other than the carb and intake are minor.

Exactly also aircleaner ?? Depends on type of carb...Nothing that can't be fixed with alittle persistance..etc..

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
