i found my 302 on Facebook market place, but any fox body mustang and some older ford trucks will have the engine, check pull a part places, when you do find one, check the engine code to see what year, because that will come in later in your build.

You'll need a new transmission too because a 6 cylinder trans will not work behind the SBF V-8.
