ok , i am gonna do a 302 swap into my 90 Bronco II Mud Truck and i have a few quick questions and hope to get some answers before i get to heavy into this

1. What can i do for Engine Mounts ? Can i use the stock ones from a 90's Explorer V-8 or does an aftermarket company make them ?

2. When it comes to wiring i want simple , and i need to know if i am gonna have to run new wires for the headlights and such because i plant to remove the ECM and complete wiring harness , is there any way to seperate out the lighting harness when i do this ? (truck will still be driven on road)

3. What are your opinions on removing the heater box assembly completely and running a low temp T-stat ?

thanks for any info guys

The EFI harness is separate from the lighting harness. Motor mounts? 85-03 Mustang 'vert mounts. Low temp T-stat ? I ran a 160* in mine for years to keep the temps down.

I hear L&L mount work good but mustang vert mounts are probably cheaper. I bought Advanced adapters mounts but don't recommend them.
Why do you want to get rid of you heater core/ heater box?
