the naked 302 block with just the timing cover on it is 21.5" with the shortest accessory set you're looking at 27" total.StoneDSoldiaR said:First, I must say that since the first mr2 v8 i saw i felt in love with it since im a big v8 fan . That car has been done wisely and with lot of patience and passion.I admire you.Sad that you get a problem with it and that it seems hard to find out . But i feel you'll find it soon, since you build this setup and you really really seems to know what you doing. My biggest concern about making those kind of swap are those kind of issues.I'm not really good at finding where problems comes from and i'm not very good in electricity.I have good bases but stays here i guess lol.
I wish you best of luck to solve that problem and get that beauty running.
Btw cbulen i thought you were going for the same engine as Mike but i seen like 3 times you talking about Northstar. The first mr2 v8 ive seen on the net years ago was with a v8 Northstar. But i'm confused which one will you be using? I maybe misunderstood but i think you said you will try to put the northstar to see and do it with the Audi engine later??
Anyone know approx how much lenght is a 302 ?? I love some much the sound of the American Block but i think german engineering is better
On this good luck to all with your crazy project , can't wait to see some vids too .
The snow starting to melt here, can't wait to drive my baby's !!!!
an LS1/LS6 is smaller and makes more power.
