Hi Guys,
My ED is getting long in the tooth (400,000 + clicks), but I love it and want to keep it so I was just wondering what I could do to give the engine a new lease on life keeping in mind that it is a dual fueler, my budget is about $3000.
Any ideas ?

The Xr6 conversion sounds ok, but would like to keep it a 302 if possible.

Is it possible to get a bit more power and response just by changing a few simple things like, air filters, plugs and cables etc ?
