Default Re: 302 vs 351/400m

Fuel injection is harder to set up and I've never heard of a fuel injected 351m/400 so that would have to be carbed

Planning to put a 347 and a T-5 in it eventually

Figuring out the wiring of the ignition system, and splicing the wiring from the Ranger to that. All the parts you need are made for a 5.0L conversion, 351m/400 are BIG engines; they make a 5.0L look small in comparison. They take a lot of money to make power, but can make big power. Headers, steering, etc going to need to be custom and on you to figure out and fabricate. I actually had a 351m & C6 to swap in, but I traded them both for a running 5.0L and got an AOD from the junk yard.
