1966 mustang need v8

I don't know where to find a 302 in decent condition (or new) for a good price. On top of that I don't know where I'd find a transmission either for it! Any suggestions and prices would be much appreciate and help greatly. Thank you!

You can get cars cheap like ones with that have been totaled or ones with a lot of dmv fees and then just swap motor and trans and youll have all the parts you will need

Find a fox and get the motor and tranny out of it. That's your best bet.

I bought a 91 GT for 500 bucks. Good engine I knew ran well and a fresh rebuilt AOD transmission to boot. Rest of the car was junk but I figured it was better than buying a junk yard block. Not that I'm knocking junkyards in the least, sometimes you find the best stuff there.

That's usually what people do for budget builds. My engine came from a 91 gt and I got the motor and trans for a total of 1200. You can get some really good deals.

How do you deal with the electronics and fuel injection on the newer engines? I have a 65 that I'm jerking out a Il6 and looking for a V8.

If you go junkyard, you've got to get the wiring harness and the computer modules for it to work.

Only of you are staying fuel injected other wise plug up the holes and slap a carb on it and you're good to go
