I'm planning on street/strip/daily.It has a complete harness from a 91 5.0 but I'm not using the efi so there would be too many useless wires just hanging around.Would a 85 fuel line and harness work

I'm not the most knowledgeable about the 351 swap, but fuel line and harness should work. There's gonna be some mods, tinkering, rigging to get it to work but from what I've read it isn't that bad. Someone will chime in here and tell you the ups and downs . Are you stuck on going with the auto? I just did the swap to a T5 last summer and as long as you have pedals already in car, it makes a world of difference . And the aod I pulled out was built with a 3000 stall. A 5 speed in these light cars are alot more fun.
