I put a 93 "L" engine and trans in my 92 f150, stock was a 302 w/AOD. the hardest part was the tranny conversion......had to swap all the wiring from the donor truck into my truck, for the tranny controls. Still having some issues w/the ECU, also the Lightning is only 2 wheel drive, so i have some shifting issues in 4 low, but other that that.......HUGE IMPROVEMENT!!!!!

351 is 5.4 liters. You would probably have to change everything, new wiring harness, the transmission that goes with it etc etc. It would be very costly.
