Default 351c to 302efi swap

I have a complete donor car that runs and shifts. Im quite sure the 302 will drop right into my 71 mustang with no engine mount issues but tranny might be dif story. as far as wiring, I have the donor car so as long as I am careful removing it all, I should be good correct?
I am also aware of fuel lines and tank which I will use from donor car as well, or fabricate if needed.

What "oh craps" am I missing???
thanks

why not just convert the 351c to efi? just pick up a 351 intake with injector bungs, an elbow... and a distributor out of an EFI 460 truck and youll be half way there to making it happen

someone else suggested that locally, but ive got some blow by, its got lots of miles, and other issues. this donor car has low miles and it free.
but I appreciate your ideas..
the aod will be great also cause I drive the river road a lot so mpg is also a reason as well. Im not lookn for a fast car as much as I am a reliable one these days. ive had the car since 87 so ive had 22 years of decent power out of the 351c. 351 cam is 499 300. not huge but gives it a little more than it had when I got it years ago. now im looking for easy cold starts and not having my wife complain about smellin like fuel when we drive it.lol

Then put better heads and a custom cam in the C and make a 500HP stroker.

that AOD will find behind the 351c you just need a FMX flexplate to make it work
