a "chip" is useless, go for a tune. Its a reflash for the stock ECU and is better than a "chip." These will be about $400 from any one of the vendors here on the site.

going from a tune to a 302 is night and day....that will run around $10,000 for a complete "kit" but fabrication will still be required, depending on if you go to a junk yard for any of the parts. This is TONS of work.

Search button next time please :-D

for the cost of the engine swap, just turbo it, and build the engine.
