I hope you plan to get it tuned after the swap. If you don't, start saving for another engine.

Good luck. There are a few "installers" out there that charge alot for shoddy work. I don't know Greg or his work.

Are you doing any transmission updates? The MTX-75 doesn't put up with many burnouts or clutch bombs. The stock SVT 2.5L will snap the differential pin quite easily with repeated abuse. The added torque from the 3L will do it even sooner.

RIP TCCA

I foresee either a blown engine, shredded trans, broken half shafts, or a snapped diff pin.......

uhhh.....lets see, a 3.0L on a 2.5L tune, hmm..... sounds like a future lean issue.....I'm doubting your installers judgement......can't wait to see this clusterf*ck
