    LS1 in 51 Ford

    I'm entertaining the idea of an LS1 in my 51 Ford coupe. Can someone point me towards some written guidance? I have a 305 chevy in it now but the compression is getting a little low. I have been talking with some friends that say it is a pretty simple conversion.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    no your forum is ok just give the people some time. I can assure you that it would nt be a simple chande different wiring harness and you would need an adapter kit for your transmission you would be starting from scratch basically.
