Will this engine fit??

I'm gonna be saving about $500/mo and it either between saving up for a new car or putting it towards the 1969 mustang to make it my daily driver. If its gonna be a daily driver, I want to put in a fuel injected engine and upgrade all the steering, suspension and brake parts.

I heard the a 5.0 engine will fit pretty good without much modification, and that the 4.6, 5.4 and bigger engines require much more modification.

How hard will it be to put this engine in my 1969 coupe?

And what else am I gonna have to remove, buy and do to make this conversion complete?

Thanks,
Cody

Lol yeah I don't think a 1996 would be worth putting that much work into.

So anyone got any ideas on this?

Say goodbye to shock towers and re locating your sway bar due to clearance if your running power steering. The engine is roughly the same siZe as your 4v mod motor . This swap has been done and it takes some doing but he payoff is big. If your not a skilled welder with a lot of time on your hands its going to cost ya

Whole bunch of info online about this exact engine switch...easy? No. But then again you didn't get a classic for easy convenience. When it comes to a classic you get what you put in and the payoff is always rewarding.

I've seen one with a 460 so yeah a coyote will fit but the towers are going to be the main problem since they are the ones that take up a lot of space.

If that 4.6 is pushrods, it'll go right in with the right bracket as well as the 302.
