Assuming you are talking about the 302 Windsor it should be fine, you will need to fabricate some new engine mounts as well as a possible transmission upgrade, depending on the year and power of the V8.

Yep. I even found a supplier that might interest alot of people concerning a V8 swap, including those whom have bought parts already:


http://www.dssracing.com/


They carry all of your engine needs with the exception of the mounting system, radiator, and intake manifold. Summit Racing now carries a swap kit that should work up until the 97 model year. Look here for camshafts:

And if you want to hear them and see what they are like here are the top 10 videos that they chose:

Enjoy those videos.

If you can get the entire car as a donor, even better. The hardest thing ive had to deal with is the clutch actuation, cables suck, get an external slave cylinder unless your'e going with automatic.
