im guessin shes carburated. you could always do a fuel injection swap type deal. its a kit that you can get from summit and/or jegs that turns your carburetor into fuel injectors and they make fuel injected supercharger kits.

I imagine you already measured to make sure that motor is gonna fit. The 351 is pretty wide.

I had this on my comp for comparison..

221-351W* 24" 29" 27.5" 460 lbs.
351-400 C/M 24.5" 29" 28.5" 550 lbs.
429-460** 27" 30" 29" 720 lbs.
352-427 FE# 27" 32" 29" 625 lbs.
4.6L SOHC 28.7" 28" 26" 600 lbs.
4.6L DOHC 30" 28" 30" 576 lbs.

All of these engines have the oil sump in the front, and starters on the right.

Also: You'll prob need everything on the bottom of this list.

351 is a lot of meat...add a stroker crank and ur at 387 ish cubes...plenty of power. top it off with some good heads, cam and long tube headers if they fit.

what trans u plan on running with the 351? rangerpowersports has a nice v-8 swap section...check them out.

the trany im getting is a AODE i like autos. and the 351 will fit in perfectly i already measured it. and that Kauphman website helped alot they have all the kits and stuff. i was just wondering about keeping fuel injection. because i dont know what electrical stuff im gonna need. the website says grab all the stuff from the donar vehicle but i wasnt able to because i got the engine from a buddy. i was just wondering were i can find info for fuel injection kits.

A Windsor will have pleanty of room. The hangup will be with the heaterbox and the seam on the cab where the firewall meets the floorpan ( 8lb sledge fixes it ).

A suggestion ( not that its worth anything ) . Find a 92-95 F150 ( effer ) that had a Windsor it in. Steal its ecm, upper and lower intake's and serp. belt system/accessories brackets... wiring harnesses...

The Longblocks are about the same ( small ford ) with minor differences on roller cam modles ( mostly lifter valley changes ) .

If you install an engine like the 92~95 F-series, you will need to somehow convert the returnless fuel system on your Ranger to a return type to match the EFI system of the engine. You will also need to delete the Ranger PATS system. Returnless fuel and PATS are not compatible with the F-series PCM and wiring.

AODE...not the best trans, hope it isnt stock.

pulling an engine from an 87-95 effer would be a good place to look for the wiring, PCM and engine. the intakes for them are REALLY tall however so hood mods may need to be done.

another thing to be aware of, no effers came with a 351/AOD(e) combo. all 351s recieved the E4OD trans. so if using the PCM u'll need to get a tWeeCer or the like and cancel it out as the E4OD is a computer controlled trans. u can probaly use a Mustang 5.0 A6L PCM and be ok.

i think thats it for now...
