1 in a million shot.

My sister had something like that happen when she was driving my dad's Vcross, going down the highway, hit a broken piece of lumber that was on the road, it had a nail in it. The nail somehow managed to go straight into the ABS sensor and destroy it.

My brother in law has 2 extra 302s and from what I've read 302s are more narrow and run cooler and can make some pretty crazy power

Most states need the new engine to be same year or newer to pass inspection/emission, 350s fit just fine into a XJ and only weigh like 50lbs more than a 4.0.
