1983 t-bird

My 83 t-bird has a 3.8 v6. I am looking to swap in a 302 with fuel injection. I am looking for any information on this swap. I have been told I need to change the cross member but otherwise the new engine should fit. Will a new 302 work? Any information or material you can give me is appreciated. this was my late father's car and we are looking to fix it up.

cool Re: 1983 t-bird

It is a Fox chassis vehicle just like the Mustang of the same year, so by at least changing the motor mounts and changing the front springs to start.
