Ive got a 1984 camaro, am thinking about swapping the 2.8 liter v6 for a 305. Anyone know what all it takes?

Well, first of all.. which are you going to do, a 305 or 327? Do you have all the necessary parts? i.e. engine, transmission, springs, suspension, wiring harness, etc? I looked into this when I got my Camaro... and its really not feasable. You are better off buying a 3rd gen with a v-8. It will take lots of time, money, and beer... from what I have been told. So I went out a got myself a Formula with a 305, and then a 'Bird with a 350. <grin>

/me sniffles.
GLK, SBM, he's come a long way...
To the OP. If you're going to go ahead with this and decide on a 305, which is a smog motor, you really should just skip that idea and go 350 instead. For the extra 45 CI you get a lot more possibilities as far as good mods go...

LOL.. yeah... well.. I've seen the light.... well.. the plan this summer is to tear into the Formula and try to do as much of a complete rebuild as humanly(me that is) possible.. while ripping out the (seriously this time.. I have the receipts) rebuilt 350 and possible the 5 speed and doing a swap with the 'Bird for the 305 auto.... I know I am going to have to beef up the body A LOT.. as the Formula has T-tops and the 'Bird doesn't.. and the body on the Formula isn't in as good condition as the 'Bird... but thats my Summer project this year. So expect a lot of stupid/dumb/interesting/(and possible a few intelligent) questions along the way. <grin> BTW.. when are we going to get together for another IRC? Its been a LONG ass time... well.. since I've been involved anyway.. :)
