Any 94 and up, some 93 models also but not all, f250, lightning, bronco will be roller cam blocks. Any 351 built before then uses a flat tappet cam. They can be converted though with special lifter but they are fairly pricey.

I wouldn't run it as is though. Those motors are built to make peak power down low in the rpm range since they are for trucks, the lightning motor might be better though. I would run the 5.0 and build the 351 on the side, better h/c/i ect.

I used conv fox motor mounts, crown vic oil pan, shims on sway bar, ford motorsport dist gear for roller cam, custom built h-pipe w/ 5.0 headers edelbrock intake under stock hood and cut n welded p/s and a/c brackets back in 94 in an 85gt similar set up in 97 for a 94 gt!! u will love the torque!!
