1971 Boss 351 Engine into 83-91 LTD Crown Vic?

A silly question this might be, but I would like to ask: has anyone ever felt tempted to use a 1971-vintage Mustang Boss 351 V8 engine for a 1983-91 LTD Crown Victoria PI model?

The '71 Boss 351 engine produced 330 hp (SAE gross), while the 351W used in the 83-91 Crown Vic PI made 165-180 hp (SAE net). Both were carbureted applications.

rear gears may hold back the car from the power it will make along with transmission...
