    This is my first post and first E body project (I have done a couple B Bodies) Well, after some sweet talking with the wifey I sent the $ yesterday and ordered most of the parts necessary for a 6.4/8 speed swap for my 74 challenger. I am pretty excited and I am sure I will have some questions.

    :welcome: congrats on your first post. E-body Gen III swaps are getting to be pretty much a bolt in now. You are going to need a brake upgrade to start. And a tight suspension. The 6.4 is lots of fun !

    Welcome! That sounds fun, I’ve been around one and it was a blast. Kenne Bell supercharged. Fun Fun. Like Leo said, get the brake upgrade. Enjoy

    interested in how this goes. I'm currently doing this same swap with a 73 challenger. I can give some info if needed but I'm figuring it out as I go. LACC7761.JPG
