Im looking at putitng a 5.0 V8 where a 6 sits.

As I see it, its plug and play if you have everything, and I have everything if I do this.

Can I just unplug the 6 Cyl Wiring, and put the V8 stuff in?

Thanks

Nigel

ok. Deal would be that I have all of that sorted : I have the V8, AND i have its transmission, all wiring (its in a car). Im looking at having a second car which I can cleanly remove, and reinstall...
... Or Im going to give it a miss.

Hmmm
