Re: 58 engine swap
The original engine blew a head last summer and Jasper engines is screwin me around. I had the heads check at a machine shop and found out that jasper screwed up the heads. I've been trying to find a 352,361,390 engine to drop in that car but its hard to find a decent engine. I had two deals fall through cause the sellers sold the engine underneath me without a call back. I want to drive the car it was either this setup or a 302 and C4 trans. I can change the car back later if I want to. Its the FMX trans in that car but i have to put a floor shifter in it cause my 58 edsel has the electric shift. The car isnt even fully restored yet im driving it as is I dont care how it looks. People that drop 50K into a car and dont drive it cause they dont want anything to happen to it. Dont judge me its my decision to this. Im having fun drivin it as is, 20 years down the road I can make it original again. Its still worth something because its an edsel maybe not much but something at least.
