You will probably have alot to change. Check out www.fordtrucks.com. They have tons of info. on swaps and what fits with what.
390s are pigs on gas, you better off to look for a 460 if you want to go big, if your just looking for a little more power bore out your 302, cam,headers, intake and youll be rippin just not your wallet
