95 mustang 302 HO swap

I found a 95 302 HO with 67,000 miles including the wiring harness, headers, and sensors, and possibly the computer for 625. Everything I've read says to go with an 89-93, but this seems to be too good a deal to pass on. It seems the biggest issue with 94-95 is a smaller pool of salvage parts to choose from and a different wiring harness.<br><br>I can possibly get the stuff for a serpentine conversion as well. How hard is this to do. <br><br>It will be a daily driver with a c4 auto trans. I'd like to hear other's stories on efi and what the biggest problems are, hidden costs, etc. <br><br>What about throttle linkage and the kickdown rod?<br>Do motor mounts line up?<br><br>I know this topic has been discussed indepth before, but I haven't been too interested in it until now.<br><br>Any and all advice and opinions would be much appreciated.<br>

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

Your biggest prob will be how wide the motor is. You may need to chop out some inner fender <br><br>If your good with tools, do it

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

From what I hear, it's the little stuff that gets you (fuel pumps, wiring harness, etc.) I have also heard it is too wide (like Henry said), but if you can figure out the wiring and pick it up for cheap, go for it.

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

A 95 302 is a 302, a 5.0, whatever you want to call it. It is not a modular motor therefore it is no wider than a 75 302. The modular mustang motor is a 4.6 and started in 96 if im not mistaken.

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

It comes with the wiring harness and I can get the control box. How much harder will it be to wire that an 89-93 if I have the harness? 95 was the last year for the 302 so I don't think width should be an issue. Wouldn't the fuel pump and plumbing be the same as the 89-93 swap?

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

Go for it! Its an easy install! The main difference is the electronics. Worst case senario You get a 89-93 wire harness and computer. Sell the 95 harness &amp; computer on ebay. A 5.0 is a 5.0! The 4.6 is the wide engine. I have installed two 5.0 and one 5.8L EFI and have really enjoyed the challenge. I just wish I knew about this site when I did it.

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

I was wondering if I could use an 89-93 harness/control box if problems occurred. Would I have to use different sensors then that were compatible with that harness? Also, what are the pros/cons of the serpentine belt set up? I read that the 94-95 required the use of an electric fan? I also read that the EGR? sensors were different in 94-95? I'm wondering about that. I'm hoping to install a centech harness at the same time and hoping this will make the install easier. The bronco is completely apart - an empty tub sitting on the frame with no drivetrain. This should be the easiest time to tackle this job.

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

Go for it. That engine should have the short Explorer style belts. This would let you put an Explorer waterpump and fan on it.<br><br>I think they started using the stubby waterpump on the last body style T-bird. Then it was carried over to the Stang. At the end of the 5.0 days with the stang, it went in the Explorer, gaining the fan.

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

Can the 94-95 harness and computer be made to work?

Re:95 mustang 302 HO swap

If you get everything, go ahead and use the 94-95 harness and ECM. It is all one big happy package. It is pre '96 so you don't have any of theos damn OBDII issues to take care of.<br><br>The question is - did it come from an automatic car? if so, did you get the transmission as well? For the 94+ it should be a computer controled transmission. The ECM may not be happy if it doesn't see a transmission that it expects to be there. On the other hand, a dumb transmission (not ECM controlled) should work fine behind a stick shift computer. and of course a stick will work fine with a stick.
