Engine Conversion

I have recently purchased a 5.0 NC fairlane engine. I was wondering if anyone new if the engine would fit into my EB.
I would also like to find out the engine spec's. if possible. The engine wasn't intended for my falcon, but i thought why not give it a try, i would run thye engine on gas, so a gas conversion price would also be good. Thanks

Hmmm... may i ask how much you paid for it?? The EB came with that same engine so i dont see why you couldnt do it...
I asked the same Q a while ago and most of the reply's were that it would cost big $$$$ coz u gotta change the tranny, suspension and engine mounts, etc...

i dont think that suspension would b that different, porb someting like stiffer springs, since the engine is a bit heavier

The engine cost me around $1500, just had a full rebuild. Got the computer and everything. The people from where i bought it from said today, i have to just put in stiffer springs, because mine is an ex-copper car.

ive got v8 front springs in my eb 6, sits super low, just the springs are more heavy duty so it is more pleasant to throw aroud corners
