I'm not an authority mind ya .... but, I see a lot of Ford 385's in Fox and SN95 platforms. Most I've seen look pretty neat and simple. The "newer" engine bays seem to offer adequate room for most "older engines". The "overhead cam designed" engine bays are huge compared to some.

Not much help, just an observation,
Dave.

Talked to a guy at the track yesterday with a 96 who said it was no problem... Not sure if you can buy ready made headers .He built his. They are pretty heavy.. 3300 or so lbs.

Sure can, I have a 95 with Skinny kid motor plates and a Racecraft K member Canton pan and Kooks headers A heads. I'm sure you could use motor mts if you wanted.

Motor should fit pretty easily with minimal issues. Header and hood clearance are probably the biggest ones. However....the tunnel might need a little "massaging" or "persuasion" if you will, to fit the c6 or whatever kind of tranny your running.

If this is not gonna be a street driven car,its a no brainer imo to use a front plate instead of mounts.You can set the engine lower,header clearance issues are less and lots of room for accessaries.
