well the heads on the 91 are single port. The heads on your stang are split port. So you would be goin with an inefficient head design.
You would have to transfer the whole top half of the motor. I know of some people that have done it. However i would not! Its alot of work...

true...
just swapping to singleport heads drops you at least 40hp.
not to mention the tbird SC's only make 210hp/300tq.
that'll add some nice torque, but only add 20hp.
it's a waste of time, imho.

They can be modded to make fairly decent numbers as well as coming with a forged rotating assembly. But the supercharger and head design leave something to be desired. I would do it if you were a single-port, but split-port you can find something else to better spend your money on.
