Is it possible to fit a small block Ford 302 into a Viper? I Know this might seem a stupid question, but there barely seems to be enough room for the Rover V8's that have been fitted. Is it a struggle to get one in & does it require cutting stuff about?

Thanks in advance

My mate put a Ford 302 in his viper and it fitted fine.

Thanks that's good to know, it just looks so tight with a Rover in one & I couldn't see how you'd even get to the rear spark plugs lol

The rear plugs was an issue with my Viper. I had to make a "Special" socket with a flexible drive, bit a tw*t to do, but worked. Will see if I can find it, you're welcome to it if I still have it.

If you could find that it'd be great, as the engines due a service before the Summer. Please PM me if you can find it & I'll give you my details. Just let me know how much you need for it

Cheers

If you are quite good with a tape measure and hole cutter, you can create a removable panel in the foot well to get to the spark plugs.
