I wouldnt swap a 300,000 km 5.0L for a 4.9L. Not worth the effort.

money wise, not much, maybe 2-300, if that(i paid 750 for a new 95 5.0l efi HO out of a 95 mustang gt, with wiring harness and everything, so that should give you a rough idea)

Ya know, just cause it has high kms, dosent mean it is junk!! My buddy has a 94 F250 5.8L with a little over 440,000 on the ticker ( we think, it hit 399,999 then went to 300,000 again!!,rebuilt once maybe?), but not in the last 250,000 we can tell you!! That thing will WALK all over my 03 5.4 with 56,000 kms on it! Pulls hard once I hit the speed limiter at 160!!!:(
He just keeps going and going and.............. you know the deal!!:dontknow:

oh I know they'll last a long time.. I had 345,000km on my 5.0 mustang and she still ran 14.1s in the 1/4 mile... pulled hard and bagged hard... the guy who owns it now beats the crap out of it
As for what a 302 worth, depends on what your gunna sell with it a lot of the time too..I'm just looken for one right now and starting considering takin my old one and putting a $200 overhaul kit in it and let it keep goin

Im assuming your asking about my 72 highboy? It has a 460 out of a 75 Lincoln Mark IV. It originally had a 390 with a 4 speed, then went to a 302 with the 4 speed. Now 460 auto. Want the 4 speed again!! Or try to get a ZF in there!

yea thats the price i thought and its multi port efi, i could maybe take some picks later, it ran good when we drove it from where we bought it, i dont think it was rebuilt.
