Looking for a shop to do a FC V8 conversion.

Can anyone recommend a shop in the New England area that can do a V8 conversion in an FC??

+1 for Mazcare.  Hell, I live in CA and if I were paying someone to do a swap it'd be Mazcare even though they're on the opposite coast.  They've done so many of these that there's little research or guess work invovlved and they have some of the cleanest/most factory like builds I've ever seen.  Charlie (Bowtie7 above) will take care of you.

I've done about as many swaps as any privateer and I'd send my car to Charlie in a heartbeat.   His FC that he put together is the best swapped FC street car in the country.

That's not in any way a slam to 1320king and they may do very nice work as well.   His drag fab work I've seen is very good.   Just putting in a good word for Charlie and Mazcare as I have full confidence in their work and honesty.   He's on a list of probably 6-7 people on this forum I'd trust to build a car for me.
