My stepson has an old truck with a 283. He has a chance to get a good 302. His question is will the exhaust mount up directly and what other issues might pop up.

Thanks   appreciate your help

usually...

they should..

i am hoping thats its a 302 V8 small block..

not a GMC302 V6...

check the engine codes on the passenger side front deck surface of the block...

does it have a code that ends in DZ like these...  V0415DZ,  V1210DZ

might look like this..  it might be worth a small fortune...
