351w in a 67 mustang??

What should my concerns as far as swapping out 289 for a 351w stroked engine? I heard the shock towers are a problem? i wish i had read the posts on a previous question i had posted...i already picked up a 77-79 long block...and trying to find a -71 block is hard here in Mexico!
Where is a good place to find stoker kits at a decent price?
I might go with the 390 crank as they use stock rods and pistons as told to me by Max Kieth(thanks GUYS)!
Any advice?

Ford enlarged the engine bay in 1967 for the Mustang. This is the year they started putting 390 FE big blocks in them. A 351W will fit in your 67 Mustang without any problems. The 393 Ford stroker is a 351W block, with 302 pistons, 351W rods and a stroker crank. BTW the 393 is designed for 71 and later 351W block with the taller deck height.
