A 351C is a project on its own to get it right...... and this is over any fitment details in a fox body.

the cleveland fits and fits very well, all youll need for the swap is a oil pan and swap headers both are readily available, i recently completed mine and am extremely pleased with the results, and it all fits under the STOCK hood with a drop base air cleaner assembly. im still running the 4cyl t-5 and its still holding up (saving for the g-force conversion) driveshaft is a stock 5 spd piece. hedman makes headers, expensive yes at 600 bucks but fit very well, moroso makes a pan and it too fits very well although the dipstick that comes with it is crap. no cutting or modifying of the suspension or body is needed it drops right in. if you need any more info on the mighty cleveland just ask.
