With the research I've done I don't see me spending much money...I've already got the engine (I've got about 7 sbc's) and Tranny's I've got plenty of..my uncle damn near has his own parts yard...i would say junk but i wouldn't mind having what he's got! The tricky part that I'm seeing is the wiring and the getting the gauges to work, i am thinking that i could fix that by starting from scratch and going with all new gauges. I'm also hoping the computer doesn't interfere with anything...if anybody knows anything about this part I'd like to hear

as far as the gauges i just used put the ford sending units on the chevy motor and for the tack i put in after market since my car had the v6 in it before anyways. as far as the computer i do not think it will matter but mine does not have a computer since i am a 81 but i hear of alot of people doing this and never herd anything about the computer so i think you are good there. as far as speedometer i just made the trans end of cable fit and it does work it if off alittle but close like with in five miles per hour not bad from going from ford to chevy lol

I'm going to buy the k-member from AJE performance and i just got off the phone with Kooks headers and they make there headers(only for fox body at the moment though)to fit AJE's k members(the same one that you would buy to put in a foxbody is the same one you would buy to put in a 96). Works out great, as long as the clearance on the fox body is the same as my 96 (the steering and the bottom of the firewall) the headers should fit. My uncle has a fox body so I'll just measure mine and his and see what I'm dealing with. If it doesn't fit as is..I'll just have to use some southern ingenuity! I'll make it happen
