should be real easy I am putting one in a 98 and its fairly straight forward. the 302 and 351 are virtually the same block so all your accesories will still work. the only things you should have to get are a new lower intake and bigger injectors the 5.0 efi will still work with that motor. i forgot headers they need to be taller than the 302.

When installing the 351w in a fox body you have to change the front accessory brackets. I know atleast one of them has to be changed. Otherwise it is simple. Ford Motorsports ells the bracket in their catalog. Not expensive either.
