I have a 76 with a 302. I have seen a few comments about adding EFI to older cars. Has anyone pulled the EFI off a later mustang like a FOX body and added it on to a II?

Not yet, but my plan is to transplant a 5.0 HO & AOD from an 88 Lincoln Mk VII into a 74 2+2 V6/c4. The project will be similar to what you are talking about. I havenít started yet; both cars are currently running with original engines, maybe later this summer. Have you done anything yet?

I think the EFI is a great addition. If youíve started already, let me know what kind of stumbling blocks youíve uncovered, when I start mine, Iíll do the same.

First off, welcome to M&M!

The EFI project is pretty intensive from what I have read.

And OHD, you will have fun with a V8 swap into your 74. There will be additional issues that you will need to deal with. I'll have to see what links are still alive in my bookmarks of folks that a pretty decent write-up of what all need to get done.

I am just looking forward to getting mine back out on the road after an almost 4 year break.

Anyway, keep us posted with your progress.

Thanks for the welcome, and the heads up on the 5.0 install. I've done a little research on the swap and have some of the issues covered, but any additional information is appreciated.
