If you find a thread that has some good info, post it here. I'll add the relevant posts into this thread, and we'll keep a more up to date reference of swaps.

For 93-94 rbv stock tachometer to v8 conversion - that works

Though id add a lil info. This is from my 351W swap in my 1994 Ranger. Using these headers on a 302 would work so much better

1990 Bronco shorty Flow Tech headers fit nicely. They are a ball flange as well so no gaskets at collectors.

Driverside needs one tube massaged a lil to clear shaft on the 351. Hugs block tight and aims down along C6 tranny with alot of room to easily mount exhaust.

Passenger side angles out above the frame rail. Im going to take a small pie cut to make running exhaust better but it could work without cutting it.

Pics are thumbnails linked to my photobucket

The '88-92 "aluminum" slave uses the "black" coupler and the line used on all Ranger/Bronco2/Explorers up to the end of 1992.

in 1993 Ford switched to a glass reinforced plastic slave cylinder that
I believe is better than the earlier ones, but this requires a different
clutch line, one that uses a "gold" colored connector (they aren't compatible)

The later gold colored quick connectors are slightly larger than the older black ones. I read a post a while back on TRS where someone in this situation simply filed down the end of the gold quick disconnect to make it fit. I'm not recommending this method,but there it is for your consideration.
