Re: V8 conversion for xp
It's pretty straight forward.
There is a publication by Graffiti publications that takes you through the step by step of converting an XP to a V8. As for a motor - go for a 302 windsor, fits nice and snuggly in the engine bay. Parts (both mustang and falcon) are readily available.
Cost will depend on what you can source a majority of your parts for. Do you have space to buy a wrecked windsor powered car and strip parts off that?
'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!
