Hello, Sure, any small block Ford will fit; but with that said, if you want to make it like stock with computer, few can do that well... An easier route is to go with a kit for fuel injection/spark, or carb/spark, and just use what you need from the OEM to make your car start, and gauges work. Good Luck, oh, it will always cost twice what you expect...Rule of Law...>)) Hope this Helps, AskTrannyMan


Better check your previous post again, there were 3 at last count.


Are you in the United States? We have been hot rodding V8s for over 60 years- yes, it is possible and has been done a million times before-
