302 in a 1965 Ford Mustang

I am looking for an engine that would suite my mustang well and I've settled on the 302. How difficult would the 6 cylinder to the 302 conversion be in my 65 Mustang Coupe? Do you have any other suggestion regarding engine and transmission size.

The conversion is not all that difficult but it does involve many other systems to support the swap. Your choice of the 340 HP Ford Racing Crate Engine is a good one but that is not all you will need. The transmission , driveshaft and rear end will also need to be upgraded as well. At the same time the the front brakes and spindles should be upgraded to the V-8 versions as well. This is a popular and often done swap on early cars and much can be found on the web regarding this swap. A great forum for this is mustangsteve.com. That forum is full of good information and helpful tips on making this conversion. We can hep with many of the parts as well with making this swap.
