You can keep it fuel injected but the bigger problem will be swrapping over the wiring harness and PCM and what to do about the trans. Also upgrading the brakes, rear end etc. It's doable, just will take a lot of work. Frequent the Mustang forums, and ask questions. There is tons of info about motor swaps. I personally use www.corral.net, and wwww.stangnet.com.

thanks Tom. i wanted to put engine, tranny and all in the 86.
