i need some info
« on: October 05, 2009, 05:16:56 PM »
i have a 1980 coupe with no engine, it had a 2.3L, but i want a V8. a 302 will fit for sure, but what i wanna know is if a 351 fit in that engine bay, and if so, what modifications need to be made. the 351 is from an '83 F150. this car is not the daily driver so this is just a project for me.

A 351 will fit in that engine bay, but you will need motor mounts, a transmission that will bolt up to it and the transmission will need a new crossbar and you may have to replace the weak rear end from that weak engine.  There are many more mods that will be needed, but those are just the starting points of what you are looking at.
