I have an 89 fs Bronco with a 302 and was wondering if its a direct swap to put heads and cam out of a 5.0l mustang. And would it be worth it?

No it's not worth it at all. The heads on the Mustang 5.0 are the same as truck 5.0 heads (E7TE's) As for the cam...it won't even work as it's a Roller cam with roller lifters. This won't even fit your block. Different firing order anyway.

Might as well swap in a Mustang engine, or have yours rebuilt with the parts you want.

Easy way to give it some guts? Swap in a set of 4.10s.

Best way to give it some guts? Swap in a 351.

Expensive way to give it some guts? 460 swap. :D

I don't think a Mustang motor will be worth it; they're not designed to push around a big heavy SUV.

the HO will make more power at alot higher rpm, but it also makes more down below.
