Default V8 to 88 5 speed transmission

What V 8 motors will bolt up to a 5 speed transmission in an 88 Ranger. I would like to use an older 302 that is carburated if possible.

Thanks

There are guys that put V8s in Rangers, but I don't think they use the stock 5 speeds because they won't last too long anyhow. They are not built to take the torque of a V8. You can find Forums about putting V8s in Rangers, I don't have a link handy, but it shouldn't be hard to find.
