I dont think we have anything on that yet :-\, I do know you will need the entire wire harness and all the tid bits that go with it.
 
easy... sell it and buy a 94-95

engine
computer
harness
bellhousing

custom fab all kinds of mounts...

they are 2 completely different engines...

you could sell yer 96 and might be able to buy 94-95 and make a few bucks...

yea I honestly don't think it's worth the hassle....if you were building a 351 stroker on the other hand it might be worth the hassle.

are you guys scared of doing a little work :hammer:

Well I'm gonna fix my car... gonna put on a whole new front clip...

Its not about work... Its also about money...

Its not worth the money... Spend money for a 302 swap when you could possibly make a few bucks and get one... why would you do that...

Thats like me saying... "here brian... You can have this playstation, i don't want any money... in fact... here 100 bucks to go with it"

then you replying, "Nah... I'd rather buy one for 600 bucks"

yea it would be based on money for me too. I would say if you want to put a bigger motor in with pushrods go 351 and up then it'd be worth it for sure. but 302 I know I would rather one BUT if I had a 4.6 I'd spend that money either beefing that up or adding little bits to it so It'll be worth more when I sold it to get a 5.0

in general

MODULAR to PUSHROD engines
(OHC to OHV)

are alot of trouble and expensive...

I suggest if you want to do a swap... swap over to a 3v

thats a great swap... theres 50 pages of info here if you want to sort through it all http://www.mustangboards.com/modular-4-6l-tech/9452-anyone-intrested-5-4l.html

i agree with the redneck, just buy a 94-95....you have to replace the harness, bellhousing, k-member, and tons of other stuff...including the brake system i think.

If you had VT Stage 2 cams. ported P.I. Heads and a PI intake in that 96 you sure would feel different about going with a 302.

yah...

just build your engine... the 281s have plenty of potential... it'd be a waste to buy a new one...

If I was you though I'd do the 3v swap

a 3V swap would be awesome. I've read alot about the newer motors and they can flat out run and with so many parts flooding the aftermarket with performance parts they're gonna be alot of screamers cruising the streets soon/
