    no core, it will fit the 2.8 heads, the 3.0 heads will need 2 adapter plates

    That would be a great option. Do you have a link?

    I like that setup for the Alpine. Combine that with a freshly rebuilt 3.0 L. That'd be awesome. Are there any other camshaft options for the 3.0 L?

    Not as far as I know. Plus, there is still the ignition system to consider on the even-fire engine...

    Something may have changed since I last spoke with JL Engineering, but you'd need to call or write first before getting your hopes on this one up.

    What 3.0 are you using? Im not sure if this has already been mentioned.

    If you are using the 3.0 from a premier / monaco you will need to figure out how to make the distributor advance. The stock distributor does not do this. You could swap on 2.8 heads and allow for the 2.8 distributor. But then you have odd fire cams with an even fire crank. So you would need to swap out the crank and run full odd fire. Unless i'm missing something here.

    You could also run carbs and run coil pack ignition with megajolt. Hell of a funky setup though.

    And that is only on the early '88 & '89 3.0L PRV engine that had the distributor mounted on the end of the Right Cam Shaft. The '90-'92 utilized a Distributorless Ignition System.

    So I guess my best option would be the engine that uses the coil packs. I'll need the ignition ECU from the vehicle as well right?

    It doesn't matter which engine you use, because...the ECU probably will not work with what you're doing...

    I can't find the page with the quotes, but he wired up the Eagle Premier's entire ECU and Wiring harness, and it never worked. He had to go with an Electromotive System.
