    It can be done. You can switch out the entire motor or just the 3FE head for the 2F head. if you have all the EFI crap and a custom tank it should be OK. I would not even think about it. It will be a lot of trouble for questionable gains. You can buy TBI set ups for the 2F or convert a holley projection to fit the 2F

    Go for it! :D I did. Yes, the 3F block mounts against the 2F mounts dead on.
    The 3F-E head will mate a later model 2F block. Ensure you have the full wiring harness and all the pertinent electrical parts. I have a 3F-E in my 40 series currently.

    I decided to go 3F-E as 1) I wanted EFI, and 2) it was more cost effective as the 2F in honesty needed to be rebuilt anyway.

    Your best bet would be to find a complete vehicle and take EVERYTHING having to do with the engine.

    Good luck!

    You'll need basically everything on the actual engine, there are a lot of electrical sensor/injector parts, just make sure you would get everything that would normally be bolted to the engine/manifold(s). Things external to the engine is the EFI computer, O2 sensors and the wiring harness. The rest of the 2F stuff will work like the charcoal canister, starter, flywheel, tranny, etc.
