I have been thinking of doing the same in my 67 with a 351w. I am about 80% sure that the stock 5.8 intake is too tall, how much too tall I don't know, but it is too tall. Your other option is to buy aftermarket upper and lower intake manifolds for the 5.8. Only problem there is that they are VERY expensive, figure $500-$600 new for both intake manifolds. I am planning on using the stock lower intake and building a sheet metal upper intake that will fit under the hood.

I have done a lot of research on this EFI creation stuff, so if you have any questions send me an email or PM.

Ask around at corral.net

Several of them have 5.8L in their Stangs.

I think you'll need 5.8L lower manifold, then the rest of the Mustang EFI will bolt on.

You wouldn't want to use a 5.8L truck EFI, it is not high performance.
