302 install choice

I've found a few 302/5.0 engines in my local wrecking yards and was wondering whch one would be best. Maybe someone here has a better idea than I do.
The first I found running is out of a lincoln and has TBI. The second I found has the EFI intake. They both run great and the prices are in my ball park.(next to free)
What I was wondering was which would be easier to install into a 50's ford? Mounting it in is no problem. I'm worried about the fuel injection thing. I've never worked on one basicly and was wondering if anyone had a link that might help me out or some good basic ideas. Anything would help.

I would love to find a basic carberated 302 but those are a little hard to find around here. At least running ones are hard to find.

If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it. Or if you have an opinion on if I should stear clear of this fuel injected idea all together.

Thanks in advance.
