1987 302efi swap with 460efi

Greetings to all members. I have a 1987 full size with a 302 EFI. My best friend just gave me his 1991 F250 with a 460 EFI Banks power pack. Looking to swap parts from the F250 to my 87. I'm looking for any tips and suggestions to do this swap over. At the same time we're looking to swap the axles front and rear and possibly keep the four speed tranny in the Bronco. I wanting to do this to make a crawler out of my Beast thanks in advance to all who reply and they're willing to help me out with this significant project I look forward to showing it off on the trails of Colorado

Sub'd. I had planned on doing this to my 93 w/ 302 years ago, as I had a '89 460 EFI in a Super Duty. I stored it at my buddy's place and he moved it with forks on a loader and punched a hole in the base pan after he misplaced the keys. He then found them and ran it without oil, so it never happened.

When I was fourteen years old, I was amazed at how unintelligent my father was. By the time I turned twenty-one, I was astounded at how much he had learned in the last seven years

The banks headers really wake up the fuelie 460 engines. I have them on a '96. That should be a great combo in a Bronco. Tons of low end grunt, the stock cam runs outta steam a little early but Id run it to see what you think first. Seat of the pants feel it is almost the equivlent of doing a gear change from say 3.55 to 3.73...

With a whole parts truck, you should be golden on the parts, you will be able to use the facotry double studded 460 mounts as well. These are some of the best ones available. I'd ditch to air pump stuff and go with a modern 3 way cat.

Sounds like cool project, be sure to keep us posted on the build

It's a construction yard; dirt and oil everywhere. He moved it with a loader, surprised he didn't move it with an excavator!
