CJ8 Engine swap question

I have an 81 CJ8 Scrambler. I just bought a new never fired 350 that I plan to swap into the Jeep. It is an older model 350 and is carbureted. I know this question has been done to death and I have studied up on it and read many post. I have some questions and i am looking for sugestions.

1. what headers should I go with and why? In-frame or out?

2. Where is a good source for beefed up radiators?

3. Will I need any special hoses and if so, who sells them?

anything I should know or any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My Jeep:

Nice Scrambler.

I don't know the exact answers to your questions, if you asked what engine to use I would have said a Ford 5.0L, it is a lighter and smaller package.

BUT, I would start with companies like Advanced Adapters, I believe there are others but I am really not familar with them.

Luck on the project,

Do it right the first time !
