Exclamation mustang with a little lightning

Hey guys I am about to buy a 2000 mustang gt and I was wondering if a 351 Windsor in it with what kind of engine mounts and what 6 speed manual transmission goes behind that and would it be easier to make the 351 fuel injected or keep it carburated

You can put any motor into any car as long as you have the know-how, tools, money, and time.

351 will fit no problem. Carb will be ALOT cheaper than fuel injection and I'd go with a tremec. The torque from a 351 would probably give a stock T5 fits.

Don't know if you have inspection in Illinois but it won't pass it with a carb...
A T5 behind a 351 should last about a week.

I'm doing a carb swap this spring when I go to the dart motor. From everything I've read you can keep your gauges and use the portion of the engine harness that operates the gauges lights etc. As far as the sensors go your going to have to do a little research. But you'll need an old school ignition system. The pcm will be useless once a carb is installed. Google is your friend.
