    i just came across this thread and thought i had struck gold but none of the links work any more. do any of you know where the original links lead to? i'm trying to get as much info on this as possible. i printed out rougly 15 pages of info from another thread but still looking for more :nice:

    do any of you know of any books or sites that have an actual swap documented with pics? i've never done this (and probably bitten off more than i can chew) so i'll be needing a ton of help/advice/input as i go along so i'll take whatever info is available.

    So I know its been a while since this has been posted in, but, I have a question regarding the serp belt system, i own a bronco right now with a 351, and plan on taking it out and putting in a stang im getting. i have thought about it and decided i dont plan on having P/s and just getting a manual rack from flaming river, and could care less about A/c. my question is since i already have all of the serp belt system from the original 351, would i still have the get the adaptor stuff for the 5.0 set-up and get 5.0 stuff, or would the original 351 belt set up fit in there and not hit anything. I plan on getting a tubular k-member. and also, is it possible just to use a MSD 6al Box with the stock distributor (its a 92) or if i get a non-TFI distributor, would that work with the 6al set up and Street fire coil i have now

    The belt will work fine you will just need a shorter one,i have a bracket to remount the alt.So no reason to use the 302 stuff.You can use a TFI dizzy you will just need to put a flat tappet cam gear on it.Then it will be plug and play for the fox harness.peace

    Well, i was gonna switch to carb intake instead of the EFI, the car originally has a 2.3 in it, and i just dont wanna deal with finding a 5.0 harness etc. So, since i wont have the ECU in the car, i was wondering if a MSD 6AL box works for ignition control purposes, since, any wiring stuff etc, i can do, if it requires a different ditributor or getting one makes it easier that not a problem, just curious, i got quite a project ahead of me, just those few questions i had.
