Question type: Car Customization

so i have a 1983 mustang gl running stock with a 3.8 v6. im pretty sure it can work but i
just want to make sure before i go get an engine to throw in. would it be possible to put in
a ford 302 crate engine? as far as i know everything points to yes, but i want to make
sure there are no major issues in doing so
