Hello,

I currently have a 68 cougar that needs a rebuild. The engine (302) and transmission (C4) need to be rebuilt. I currently found a 69 Thunderjet Motor that runs fine and a C6 for $500! I'm wanting a 400hp/400torque motor. This seems like a cheap option instead of keeping the 302.

Do you think a 429TJ would be a good motor to drop in?

The swap shouldn't be that hard, but have any of you done this before?

What's all needed?

I like 429s. I have a 70 low milage that I ran in my 77 F250 4WD and loved it except I felt it needed a rev limiter. In low range it would wind up quick but never did any damage so far as I know. There are a few on Cougar net that run them in Cougars so maybe they will chime in. Good luck.
