Dear bobbyusmile-- According to my own personal guru, Tom Fahy of the Newton Street Garage in Brighton, Ma., you can swap engines as long as the motor mounts and the transmission line up. Of course you will need to customize wiring and controls and for that you would have to have some mechanical talent. Have fun with your 1996 Ford F150. Good luck from Bovan.

1975 ford head will it fit on my 1990 ford both have a 300 6 cylinder
