My dad wants to know how difficult is it to convert a fuel injected 302 to carborated induction? Do heads, etc., have to be changed. Found another complete 302, 4bbl, for $800. Is this a good price. Don't have any idea how good it is.

Converting to carb is no problem, new intake and carb. The heads are the same. Might need a different
distributor for the carbed application. You will need a distributor with a steel gear.

Things may be tougher than you think. You didn't mention what year the car was. If it is late model car are subject to emissions testing then the swap from fuel injection to carb will screw up the functioning of the ECM. So it becomes a legal problem not a technical one.

One other minor detail is the fuel pressure for a fuel injection system is too high for a carb.

Chances are you can find a LOT of guys on this forum that would be winning to swap you... maybe just a complete engine swap.
Most guys are going to FE instead of away from it. I would be interested if you are in the San Diego area... modify your profile and let us know where you live, what you do (school), and what type of mustang(s) you have!

You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me!!!
