    302 swap Cyl #8 glowing?>

    Wow is all i have to say about this motor. I got the exaust on it and i figured it out it was not the 02 sensors it was actually the firing order. Apparently there are two firing orders one for HO's and non HO's. It will run on both but fuel gets to #8 way later and causes it to run lean.

    5.0 swap doesnt stay running

    Sorry, about the lack of information. It was the MAF. I think it was damaged when i bought it off ebay. It would stay running for maybe 3 seconds. Enough to rev up land die down.
