A 351 CIN A FOX will have to be custom done, get the build right will be a chore as well as install, they don't make an install kit to do such

It is easily doable, you just have to be patient and not rush. I have seen one fox with a 351C in it and it was BAD!! I would think a tubular K member would be a logical first step to help with clearance. If you can weld, you can make the oil pan fit if it is a little off.

yes the 351m pan will work BUT it must be modified so if your not an expert welder dont attempt it, the 351c swap is cake hedman hustler has the headers that fit extremely well , i strongly suggest usin a swap pan then you can get the matching pickup also. the swap is not cheap to do the headers alone will rock you 600 bucks! yes there are other headers that can be made to work but again if you not a welder forget it. i recently completed my clevo swap and let me tell ya the power and rpm capability of these motors is awesome! if you need any more info just ask.
