if you want it to be easy find another 5.0 and do the swap, if you cant find a good motor look into a 5.0 short block have youre heads redone "valve seats" and then put youre heads and intake on the short block. itll be practically a new motor then. but if you still want easy find another 302 "5.0"

You could stick just about anything in there from a 2.3 4 cylinder to a 460 big block with the right swap kit. Just decide what engine you want and go from there. If that Interceptor is a 5.0, it'll be a direct bolt in.

fords, lincolns, or mercurys should all have the 5.0 ho on the intake. which would be a direct replacement. the HO just means that it has the firing order of a 351.
