Default 351w Crate

Ive got a 94GT looking to swap my 302 for a 351w. I was wondering how simple this would be? And Id also prob be ending up with a carb. My budget will only be about 35-4k at most. So I though a crate would cut cost and time plus Im very green although I have a friend right now helping with my 302. In all honesty would it be best to do a crate, or start from a long block with my budget? Keep in mind it is a 94 not fox

here are some crates Ive been looking at

Even with these crates what would I need to add, or replace? Please help

Your engine bay is designed for a 302, so it will technically be the same as a standard foxbody swap correct? Just have to find correct headers for your year?

I have read I would have to change oil pan, intake, heads, headers and pully assembly. And even motor mounts for clearance, or a cowl hood ..And timing chain cover. Im confused though cause others say everything bolts right up

The heads for a 302 and 351w are the same. The intake is just wider for the larger block. I was able to fit my stock hood on until I got a tall intake, then had to go to a 4" cowl. The A/C, Power steering bracket is different for a 351w. You can probably find one on ebay, otherwise the 302 and 351w have basically the same setup.

Post 351 swap

Isent the brackets the same on the 94 and 95 as the cobra R? If so you should only need a longer belt I would think. I know that on the Fox you need to change the bracket and FMS make's them, but they do not make it for the 94/95 were the P/S and A/C are not the same as the FOX. If Im am rong please tell me. I am working on a 351 swap in my 95.
