i have a windsor for sale, and yes it will fit no problem in your car, you will not need to swap anything else as long you arent running an EGR line. If you still have you EGR line on the car you will to weld a about 2 inches to extend it! my motor is complete minus valve covers and oil pan and pick up! ill send you more info if you want it

i hear stock 302 manifold/headers will not fit with a 351 in an sn95. Also, the intake will be sitting higher, which might not clear your hood.

You need to change the intake, oil pan, distributer, and headers. And like Ear Rak said probably the hood for clearence issues!

What is this 351 out of? A truck? if so, i wouldnt bother. Buy a bare block and start from scratch. Granted, you could put a car friendly cam in a truck motor and be fine in theory but truck motor = used and abused.

tho he wants to make it a "cobra r" replica so that would work well since it would most likely fit under the double bump cobra r hood.
You should also change out the heads (unless the engine comes with them), what ever you do, do NOT put the 302 heads on the 351, you will choke the crap out of the thing!
I think you may need a different flywheel too, unless your running a auto. Cuase the 351 is balanced differently then the 302

I really appreciate all the input. I was planning on getting the cobra R hood for clearence issues and was also planning on getting a new trans set up. My trans has seen its last days I think.

Yeah I am in a toss up right now between the TKO or a T-56. Money is really the issue. I think I could settle with a TKO 500. Thanks I really appreciate all the input i can get.
