It isn't all that complex.

I posted my writeup on the thread linked to above, but the version on my site is more current.
My site is listed in my sig.

Down here in the Seattle area a complete long block will go for about 5-600 for a non-roller, and 7-900 for a roller block.

Don't hesitate to ask questions, it is a great swap!

You won't have any problems finding 351Ws, but you will have trouble finding 351W roller blocks. A lot of trucks and vans came with them, just look under the hood at any stickers. The intake manifold will say something like "Ford 5.8 EFI."

What!? what do you mean no mustang came with a 351!?[>:]

In 1969 the Ford musrtang came with two versions of the 351 the 2 barrel version was rated at 250hp while the 4 barrel was rated at 290. Both were built at Fords Windsor plant thus making them 351 Windsors and both were standard issue in the mach 1's (opptional on other models)right up until the original mustangs demise in 1973 (although power figs varied)
