I had 180K on my old 2.8 and it used not a drop of oil. But it sure leaked it. I built myself an engine from the ground up from a 3.1 I got from John a year or so ago. I even bought a set of heads from him. He knows what he is talking about. Betterthanyou is what I based my engine from. Solid information. If you can, find a 3.4 and start with that. It is as close to a bolt in you can find that can really run circles around the old 2.8. I pumped up my 3.1 to about a 3.2 and I am happy with that.
Good luck and keep us posted!

I didn't have anyone to help me when I did mine, I just rigged up a rubber bungie to the Throttle body to keep the butterflys open. Like betterthanyou said remove all the plugs so its balanced out right and I just pulled the fuel pump fuse so I wasn't dumping fuel at the same time.
