Guys (and gals), i been thinking on going EFI on my 1971 Mustang Grande, it's got a 302 2BBL and 3sp tranny original.

i found a good deal on a 302-EFI 1988' with everything included, motor, tranny, computer, harness etc.

in your expert opinion, am i driving into a pitfall? how easy would it be to replace the original 302 carb'ed with this new engine for a monky grease crew (that's my kids and I). is it worth it?

please shoot.
regards

its totally worth it, if you ask me. the motor will drop right in, as well. the hardest part will be the wiring.

You know, I've had 2 65s with carbs and a 66 with a carb, all of them 289. It's nice to have the simplicity of old school. I'm in the finishing stages of a 5.0 EFI/AOD install. Old school is nice, but there is A LOT to be said for just turning the key and VROOM! the engine roars to life. The wiring can be a real challenge, but once you have it figured out, it is very nice to have instant starts and smooth operation.
