1994 F150 engine transplant

Im wanting to put a Mustang 5.0 in my 94 F150 which I drive daily. I understand that the roller motor is timed like a 351W. So heres my question...How do I get around that as far as timing goes? My truck is a 5.0 as well, hyd flat tappet I believe. Hey, any help would be appreciated!

I'm not sure why you would want to work around the firing order. Why not leave it like it is? Or maybe I missed something. If I were doing this transplant I would pull the whole engine out of the Mustang and use the ECU and things from it as well.

Well it is a 1985 5.0, and is a carb motor. Bummer I know. I figured I might find a roller cam w/a normal 302 firing order. The 302HO, is timed different than a normal(truck)302 right? If it is wouldnt this interfere with the computer?

Re: 1994 F150 engine transplant

I thought you were doing a swap with same year model engines. I think it would be ok because the computer only advances or retards the timing as it needs to. I dont think it actually reads a particular firing order. So, with your throttle body and intake inplace, the computer shouldnt have any trouble with it. I dont see any reason it wouldnt work out ok. I could be missing something but it seems reasonable to believe all would be well.
