Question Ford 6.8L V10 engine specs needed

Ok people. I have tried searching all over the web and all I get back is non related #&$@. Some one out there has to know where I can get a ford engine spec sheet or something like it. I would like to know the dimensions of 4.6L 5.4L and the6.8L v10 and their variants, as in height - length - width - weight - etc. I am trying to decide what to put in my 64 XL fastback GALAXIE . I already have 2 429SCJs but would like to be a little diff on this project. I went for a ride in the company E350 w/V10 and was amazed at how this thing pulled a super size box down the road. any help would be appreciated. if you cant help then please keep it to yourself. thanx

Let's see.. Ok, the ford racing book has a 10.0787" deck height. The 5.4 has the same height, so there is your comparision for width, but no known length dim. Having supported many sbf first gen swaps, I do know that you will have a problem with your shock towers,because the ohc motors are substanbtially wider, but if your other choice is a 429 motor, it may only be an inch or so wider. The length, I think, will be the dealbreaker in that chassis, more than anything, as far as fit. That said, we go on to the issue of electronically making it work. You are looking at paying a shop like ours about a grand to convert your existing donor harness, AND, you have to import ALL of the security system components into the car, and each vehicle's system is VIN specific, meaning no getting some from that truck, some from this truck, and the PATS security system module IS the instrument cluster. Identifying the PATS equipped vehicles is by checking the igntion key. If it is the FAT-headed, 100.00 key, it does, if it has the home depot, thin key, it does not. May I suggest running a 5.0 or 5.8 EFI, with a custom fabbed induction, for the looks? Being different costs exponentially more than working with simplicity, fer sure.

Found the 4.6 specs, for your perusal.

SOHC
28.625" wide
26" high
28" long

DOHC
30" wide
30" high
28" long

The most popular conversion we do here is the 4.6 SOHC, but have not done so in the 1st gen mustang. Break our your tape measure.
