Should be a nice swap. If I wouldn't of had my 350 sitting in my garage I would've looked for a 5.0 and built it. Can't wait to see it go in.

Motor is running!!! I finished the motor mounts Friday and got it wired today. Wiring was pretty basic. Simply hook ign hot to the r/g wire that feeds the EEC relay.

Yes, I know the wiring is a mess. I'm in the process of cleaning it up.

So the BBK mustang shorty headers worked awesome. Like they were made for it. The down pipes also worked beautiful. Still waiting on my slave though..

Finally got to go driving and this motor rips. Very different than my 408. This one likes to rev. I'm probably gonna eventually put a tamer cam in it but for now I'm just gonna enjoy it. I have 28 lb injectors on the way as it runs lean under wot. I also need to find a 1" bore clutch master if anyone knows where or what will work.

The motor currently has 24's and the MAF is calibrated for them. The 28's should be here sometime this week and I'm gonna have to get it changed then.
