I am looking to put a motor in a 1983 Thunderbird and i am interested to know if a 351 Winsdor motor(5.7L) High Output motor would fit and bolt up in this car?
yes. might need more then your thinking but yes.
You may need to look up some Mustang Forums. I'm sure it's been done but I don't know what it takes.
Check height clearances. The 351 is a taller deck engine than the 302. Done right, it will be fantastic, as the 351 can return gas mileage that makes you think it is an economy car!
