Easy swap and maybe 11 mpg.

350 TBI or Vortec = about 18 mpg, lots cheaper and 100x the parts available. My personal experience with any of the AMC V8's is you are very lucky to get 15 mpg no matter what you do to them and for dollars spent, a Chevy will tear you a new behind. More work and money to install a sbc but a better finished product in every way.

Thanks for all the replies, I will be doing the chevy 350 swap when the 4.2 craps out, I was thinking of keeping it amc but parts are so much more costly, I have done this swap in a toyota before so I am familar with what it will intell.
