Hello,

I have a 1966 Mustang Coupe with a V8 289c.i. with a 4-speed top loader transmission.

I'd like to do some freshening up by dropping in a modern engine. I'm looking for something that is still easy to drive around town, hit the highway from time to time. I'm interested in trying fuel injection if its an option. I'm also interested in something that's relatively "drop-in" so I can get a better idea on cost.

Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

crate 302 would bolt in place of the 289, and you can top it off with something like one of the four barrel carb style fuel injection systems on the market today. that would be the easiest way to go.
