So iv messed with mustangs before, i had an 81 GT when i was 15 and am now 17 and moved past that vehicle. I ended up getting a 92’ LX hatch and do not like the 88hp that this thing puts out and the 5.0 in my 81’ wasnt anything either so i wanna go bigger with a 351w. Iv never attempted a swap before but ik the basics of what i need with the suspension components and ik the engine mounts and k-member are fine. I need more info on the engine harness, ecu etc. i wanna know what i can keep from the 2.3l harness and what i cant, and the easiest way to swap. I assume a 92’ f-150 is whered id start but its better to know what i need then go in clueless. Thanks to anyone in advance!

How much power do you want to make? Unless you’re wanting to go with an all out build (stroker, etc) I’d throw in a 302 with a nice top end kit and call it a day. It’s more work to put a 351w in a fox and doesn’t make much more power with the stock bore than a 302 with bolt ons.

Probably like 600-650hp, i wanted to turbo it with a single 70mm on3 turbo kit. I did research into the 5.0 swap but they are so much harder to find than a 351w. Im willing to go that route if i can find one, i would also need info on that ofc. Wiring harness, ecu, possible tuning etc.

You’d think a 302 would be easier to find. With that power level in mind though you’ll need a dart block. A regular 302 production block splits at around 500.
