Hook,

Yup, we did that. Put a 514 Ford Crate Motor into a mustang.

A lot of banging on the sheetmetal to make it fit but it wasn't too bad.

If you intend on dual purpose (street/track) then crate motor is OK.
If I had it to do over I would have asked one of the many engine builders on this site to build a motor for me.

It will cost more than a crate motor; but in the long run it is a lot cheaper because the guys on this site build good stuff that lasts a long time (many passes at the track).

Just my 2 cents worth.
