I vote 5.0L, cheap to work on and for parts, can make fast fairly cheap, and you could stroke it to 347 later on. H/C/I and make 300+HP

How is that so? A 351W, and 302 are a direct swap in also. They'll be just as easy or hard how ever you wanna look at it. I personally would go with the 351W. That's my next engine hopefully in my next mustang. You can use some parts from 5.0's as well. 351W aren't as common or as cheap so I would go with a 302 if money is a factor and stroke that thing. Parts are so common for 302s that I'm willing to bet Wal-Mart is going to have them soon.
