Speaking of all wheel drive, I have always wondered if you could run a Chevy LS engine with a dry sump and super shallow oil pan.

You would still have to engineer a stabilizing brace for the front diff, but I would imagine anyone capable of doing the swap could also make short work of that.

I would have to do some research but I think the deck height on a Ford 302 is lower than say a Chevy 350, so a smaller 302 may make that “even more possible”. Set the block a bit higher, run a dry sump and engineer a diff brace - I think I had that dream once

Nice dream! That kind of sound from an E53 would be intoxicating!

I agree and I would totally consider going old school and putting some Flowmaster series 40/44 mufflers on it (all stainless for sure) - it would sound amazing for sure!

Peeps would be like what the heck is that!

Keep the dream alive!! 🤪
