Thanks IC and Mr P. I know they will fit, as my friends have done it. What I should have been more clear on is a late model 302, say 2000 or up. They are lighter and a little smaller than the modulars? From what I,ve been reading, there should be no problem wringing 300 hp out of a 5.0. It would seem the modulars are more plentiful and cheaper up here in N WI. Hard to make a choice. Right now I have the rails deriveted, boxing plates ready to be tigged, 63 T-Bird 9" rear narrowed to 56". Getting a triangular 4 link from Paul Hortons. The front has not been ordered yet, but it will be the Heidts superride.
Pros and cons - 5.0 vs Modular?
