Fuel injection, head swap, manifold swap, A518/241 install, air conditioning. For Mojo (the diesel), an NV4500 swap.
Done.

what kinda heads are you gonna swap on there? the 308's from the 90 motor? Finally the hidden power from the ramus will be unleashed ;D ...but how will you handle the added mileage with the overdrive?

Swap out my R-12 for R-134, get a new a/c condensor, fix the passenger side seat (it won't latch to the floor), headers, shift kit, Jet Chip, new springs for the rear, new valve covers, and get it waxed to help with the oxidation.


And with the Grace of God maybe one day I can swap in a new engine. ;D

Yeah, the 90 heads. I assume they are 308s. I will also be enjoying the 2.72:1 ratio NP241, as opposed to the 2:1 NP203, not to mention the 100 lbs less weight.

sweet, sounds like a pretty good project....one thing you can do with your axles is swap everything from the knuckles out to a 8 lug pattern on the front dana 44 and then throw a dana 60 or a 14 bolt in the rear and have a little extra beef underneath.

Well my engine swap has just been bumped up from sometime this fall to sometime this month. Since my oil pump went out my engine took some punishment and now a complete overhaul is due or just install a new engine as was my original intent all along. I just need to start getting everything inorder for this project.

I'm still uncertain about what parts I'll need for this Magnum swap to work so if anybody has any input or info I would greatly appreciate your help.

When I found out that I needed a new engine sooner rather than later I almost bought a 1990 Chevy Blazer. :-\ I was so upset with everything that I was just about ready to give up and start over with something that seemed to be a lot easier to find parts for, especially after market performance stuff. Well needless to say I didn't buy it, but was very close. I'll just fix up my RC and move on. :)
