k, quick question, what years, if any, did a 351w come with fule injection and 4bolt mains, i knew a few had extra meet on em if u wanted to add the extra bolts, and some had partial 4bolt mains but i wanted to know for a future upgrade.

All 302w and 351w have 2 bolt mains except 302 BOSS and the SVO blocks. Fuel injected blocks never had 4 bolt mains as they were mostly used as truck motors in the US and were not really considered by Ford as a performance motor especialy since the release of 4.6 and 5.4 modular motors.

As for all you other questions read this thread

You can use the fuel injection just get a manifold to suit your application. Which roller rockers you get will depend on your head selection and engine combo, it has nothing to do with the block.

sorry...my mistake i didn't read it properly ..... anyways you can use roller lifters in them...comp cams & crane both produce the conversion kits to suit solid roller & hydraulic roller...

Std roller lifters WON'T fit as the bores are too short and lifer pops out.The hydraulic roller lifters are somewhat longer...Why pushrods are so short..
An aftermarket cam/ lifters can be fitted but they have a small bass circle.Not realy optimal for hi performance, but o/k..
