Newb V8 swap questions
Been looking to possibly do a V8 swap on my 96 4.0 and am just starting the research part. Found this ad when doing a quick search-
i have a 1990 ford 302 out of a lincoln lsc for sale. its the same 5.0 ho that the mustangs use. i have all the accessories, an accel super coil, the full wiring harness, distributor, etc. complete intake manifold to oil pan. 91k ran great when pulled a couple months ago. asking $450 obo, email me for pics. i also have the flexplate, torque converter, and a set of headers to go with it.
Would this be a good swap? It appears everything is there, would stuff plug up etc as I have read. Any way to adapt it to current tranny? If not what tranny would I have to run? Would like to put a manual behind it.
Thanks for any answers.
