Funny mine was Right at 100 also, and the 25 Added 4.6 Vs 5.4 stock for stock

So im looking at roughly 125 minus the 45 lb battery i put in the trunk and my E-Fan is a good 5 Lbs lighter then stock,Also don't run spark plug wires coil packs or coil pack brackets Maybe another 5 lbs?
So i only put about 70 lbs over the front end.My car is not mobile just yet so i don't know but im sure its just fine.i know alot of people with 100+ Added pounds on the front with no issues at all.

I know its not quite the same, but anyone know of a write up for a 351 swap. I'm thinking the carb and possiblity of a stroked 351 might be pretty sweet. Think its harder than a 5.4 swap
? Its less electrical stuff so I would think it would be easier.

Honestly it probably won't drop right in like a 5.4 but will be close. as far as once you get the motor in the car the rest of the setup is cake get yourself a MSD-6AL Box a nice carb and dizzy and wire er up.

Thats kind of what I was thinking. Should be pretty simple. I guess the weight is a question also. I'm sure the iron blocks aren't light. But the pushrod motors tend to be a good bit lighter than the OHC motors.

Well the mod motors have Iron Blocks as well but the the Aluminum heads help out so unless you go with a set of aluminum heads on a 351 its gona be much heavier,Don't expect to just drop a 351 in and be fast its gona need some tweekin.But can be made to be a stout car if you have some cash to play with.
