I have a friend with an old 351C engine, I am not interested in putting it into my car (mainly because I don't think it would fit) but I was wondering if any of his parts from the engine could be used in mine?

The cleveland engine is a totally different puppy, you may be able to use the carb but thats about it. Putting the heads on your motor would require a special intake manifold and it would be cost prohibitive...

1. There is nothing off a 351c that you can easily use on your windsor based motor. The only think people have used historically is the heads, but with the aftermarket choices in aluminum heads, you don't want to go through the hassle of putting c heads on your motor.

2. Off course it will fit, and if you opt to just tramsplant the motor, you get a great mod to the total car that many people never expect. This is not a mod for the faint of heart though and requires money to be spent ($500 for headers, $200-500 for radiator, $50 for motor/frame mounts)
