What about into a sn95 stang? I have a 95 gt with the 5.0 and want to go big block. Do all these rules apply?

The same stuff applies, but the hood clearance may be different.

Maybe someone with direct experience with the sn95 351w swap can chime in now?

I have seen these forums and many like it and the only item I never see brought up is suspension. A 351w is many times heavier than the v6 that was in my 87 lx that weight weighs down the 90/10's. For the motor not fitting under the hood is that efi only because I fit mine with no problems I run a carb

Its actually not bad at all going from a 302 to a 351w in a 94-95 car. I have been ableto fit a complete take out motor from a 94 Lightning into my 95 and still use the stock hood. There are a few tricks. The swap is different form the Fox body cars. The front accessories from the 94-95 are reused for the 351. They don't present any clearance issues either. The only thing that becomes a hassle is the headers. If you want long tubes and don't want the hassle of making them work by clearancing or denting a tube or two then buy a set of Kooks or accufabs. If it is making over 500 rwhp do the same. If you use shorties you can use most sets of fox headers. You cannot use equal lengths. Warning: they won't fit. I hear people complain about the computer and say that it won't run right. If your car is already running ok and has no issues then a chip won't give you much more power. I swapped in a Cobra R model computer that i had and it didn't make anymore power. It was a little more responsive down low but, didn't offer anymore on the dyno. This was done before and after a cam swap. The A9L swaps are also a waste of money for the 94-95. You have to buy a fan controller and change the pin programmingwhereas you could by a tweecer and be done with it. I do quite a few of these and own a few S-351 cars. If you have any questions on the swap or need special parts let me know. Send me an e-mail to [email protected]. Don't pm me from here. I won't get it.

is it possible to use the stock eec that came with a 1990 GT mustang with an EFI 351 conversion?

Yes, you can use the same eec from a 90' mustang as long as the motor in the 90' is an H.O. motor. If the motor in the 90' is not an H.O. the firing order is off. I had my car dyno-tuned with a twEECer. I would recomend spending the $500 on dyno-tuning and getting a custom burned chip it will make all the difference in the world on how the car runs!If you dont have a dyno-tunedcar you might be dissapointed with the performance of the car.In other worlds budget the $500 for dyno-tuning into your budget. I didnt even try to start the motor without new parameters on the EEC because of the supercharger and methonal injection. If efi was cheap everybody would be doing it!

everything that i've read so far on the 351w swap is for an older body style. i've been searching and search but can't seem to find this. what would it take to go from the manual 2005 v6 to the 351w? it's a huge project non the less but i'd love to make it happen. is this possibly too big of a project though? am i looking at upgrading the entire drive train, suspention, engine compartment? if not the 351w how about putting in a 302? thanks!

found this crate engine from a company that's not too far of a drive for me: on ebay Item number: 220137194143
