302 or 351 HO? Egads.
I have a 93 mustang lx with the 2.3L 4 cyl. It is a dog and really not as much fun as I want to have. I want to put a different engine in it but am unsure as to what to put into it. I have two options. I have a 302 out of an 89 Ford F-250 or 350,and a 351 HO out of an 80s Bronco. Which would you choose?
I would mainly be using it as an everyday drive. I imagine the 302 to be ALOT better on gas than the 351, but the 302 is a little more sissy compared to the 351. Its a tough choice. basically what I want to know is which one would be easier, more cost efficient to install, again I am thinking the 302 would be cheaper and easier. But I really LOVE the 351, its a beast, and what is the fun in putting in a 302 if you could just put in the 351.
351 or 302? Both are non-efi. If I install the 351 am I basically going to have to change everything about the car? ie: suspension, transmission, front end?
Give me some ideas, money is a little tight, but I can survive on ramen noodles and bologna sandwiches.
Basically, I just want the most fun and thrills for the cheapest amount of money. There, I said it.
Let me know which will take the most amount of work, which will be the best overall, which will be the easiest for my father and I to do. He is old and I am not the best mechanic. He has the know how, I have the youth.
Thank you in advance for any info you can offer.
