Engine swap in a 95 F150 4x4

Has anybody swapped out a 5.0 for 5.8?? I want more power and I know a gear change would help but I could do a engine swap faster. Truck is a daily driver and I want to know want changes had to be made ie..injector and sensor harness etc.. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Ford Fans Windsor660

The best thing to do is purchase a complete 351W engine out of another truck with low miles w/all
the brackets,pulleys,intake,etc.If you can't find
one w/low miles then just get one and rebuild it.
The 351W should fit right in place of the 302.You
might have to make some adjustments on your exhaust where the pipes connect.Also try it with
your existing computer.You may have to change it
out to one for the 351W.One more thing your gas
mileage will suffer as in 2-3 MPG less.I have a
93 and at the present time I'm changing the gear
from a 3.55 to a 4.10 to accomidate my 32" tires.

I don't think the 5.0 computer would work on a 5.8 engine, unless you replace the distributor with a 5.0 one. I don't know if that is even possible. The tranny should also bolt up fine. If you have the smaller radiator, you might want to replace it with a larger unit. Otherwise, it should be a easy swap. My guess is also around 3-4mpg less than the 302, but you'll have a bit more highend than the 302 would have.
