Hey these days a Bf conversion can be done for under 2k mine only went over due to expensive exhaust lol bit trickyer to get them to fit under an EL bonnet think you need to either lower k frame or engine mount modification. I ran mine with the ea auto trans computer so I could keep the Eb auto box

Nice man, they look so good in older cars, local wreckers down the road has one for $250 but with nothing with it, only done 30,000km if I remember, they are so beefy in person.
