A 351c can make some power depending budget and how far you want to stroke it.Yeah money has a lot to do with it can't count how many times i seen cars at car shows,You see with a hell of a engine and rims but the body looks rough and a crap paint job and interior looks rough.They look like they spent 3/4 of there budget on the engine and left the rest to chance.

I too am looking to put a mod motor in a 1971. I have been doing a lot of measuring and I think the 4.6 and 5.0 will fit between the shock towers. The power steering is a problem. The steering box is directly in the way of one of the exhaust ports. I will try to post a picture of my full scale drawings.

Why not use a diesel?A 4bt cummins is small enough weights about what a big block does.But can make a ton of torque and get better mileage then a gas engine.

If there was ever a unibody engine bay in the Ford universe that was "designed" to cart around a modular V-8, it would have to be the '71-'73 Mustang and Cougar. That is because Ford had planned to shove the Boss 429 (which measures out at 34 inches long x 30 inches wide) into the car, as well as the mammoth 429 Cobra Jet. The engine would require the Canton front sump pan and pick up. The T-56 six-speed is another story, as it still causes issues in the tunnel.

Top of shock tower width: 29¾ inches
Bottom of shock tower width: 27½ inches
Framerail width: 30½ inches
