Default 1965 mustang engine swap. Inline 6 to 4.0 v8

I'm wanting to do an engine swap on my 1965 coupe. Right now I have a 200ci inline 6 and I'm not satisfied. My mechanic told me that instead of putting a 5.0 in it I should pull a 4.0 302 out of a 90's ford expedition. (If I do so ill be changing it from fuel injected to carbureted.) I know this kind of swap isn't easy so please don't lecture me on that. My concern is weather or not the 4.0 will fit in my engine bay without modifications to the car. Is it possible? Please help

a 302 engine is a 5.0 liter, or more precisely a 4.9 liter but they call it a 5.0. I would think a 302 would fit into a 65, since that was one of the engine choices offered back then

If you're pulling a V8 from an explorer, it'll be a fuel inject 5.0 302. If you pull a V6 out of an explorer, it will be a 4.0. You can convert the 5.0 to carb status and run it like that, all you'll need is new motor mounts and a different transmission bell housing in order for it to fit.

Ill pull the 5.0 and convert it to carbureted. Thanks for clarifying for me. Is it possible to pull a transmission from a modern vehicle to use?
