I have been thinking about a 347 stroker, but have come to the conclusion that maybe i would be better of with a 351 windsor. Retro fit all the goodies of my current 5.0 and whammo, 5.8 liters of pure goodness. My question is will the intakes and serpetine belt arangement bolt up to an old school windsor, or should i go looking for and injected 351 to start with. Also is there any clearance problems within the EF engine bay. I have read that the 351 is 1/2 an inch taller in the deck height. So food for thought 351, or 347 stroker. Cause i could always stroke a 351 to 427inches, then i would have a 7.0, not a 5.0

AU XR motor is not going to make anywhere near the power a good stroker will make (especially one with AFR185 heads). Brett wants to go faster...
The BA motor would be an electrical nightmare as well as a close fit to everything. Have you seen the physical size of those things?

wont supercharging the 5.0 be cheaper and simpler???
having said that, there are plenty of aftermarket inlet manifolds to suit the 5.8L/351. (they are different to the 5.0L). as far as i'm aware, the serpentine belt spins the water pump the opposite way. at least it does on the 5.0. timing covers are different on old school too, no mech fuel pump on efi. may be easier to source the parts by getting the efi 5.8 to begin with, as you said.
dunno bout bonnet clearance, scoop (ba style) may be the go.

As far as your clearance goes, take a good look at the extractors clearance in the 5.0 enginge and then imagine a wider engine. I suggest you get a tape measure out or you may find that the custom extractors and or body mods themselves may go to a couple a grand.. Tread lightly , move slowly.
