Can you describe any other pitfalls, or things you needed to complete the job? Or simply anything you consider important if you were gonna do it again?
Was the "mule motor" just a junkyard find that you cleaned up?

Thanks again!

Maybe you can post the pictures directly on Tccoa and and maybe the Mods can make your thread a sticky for future reference.

There were no real pitfalls...The motor was a $500.00 junkyard special (came with wire harness and air cleaner and coolant hoses). There are some things like throttle cable and sensors that need to from the Mark. If you have question feel free to pm me. I couldnt have done it without the help of Toombs and Racecougar, so Ill be glad to help.

I'm going to be doing this swap early next summer if everything goes smoothly financially.

Are those Kooks the same as the ones for the 2v? I have no idea.

Also, can someone suggest me a good MAF size for 4v applications? I don't plan on going much past a stock DOHC.

the kookswill be different at the flange. 2v is round hole while 4v will be slot oval.

My daily job is to fry rice for my customers....

The Kooks were from Supercoupe Performance, I told him what I was doing and he sent me the correct ones. I would suggest talking to Lonnie at Blue Oval Chips..he can set you up with a MAF and the programming for it.

Nope, as Casper already mentioned, the exhaust ports are different between the 2V and 4V.

The stock Mark 8 80mm MAF would be just fine for a relatively stock DOHC (I'm currently running one on my setup).
