Thanks everyone for this information
The 351 is wider and the intakes are different.If you already have a 302/5.0L motor in your boat everything will fit a replacement long block from any parts house or engine rebuilder. Just transfer all the items off the old motor that are'nt on the replacement engine. You can also get a Ford 351 Windsor motor and all items will transfer to it also.
Same engine.. Nothing new out there. Get from a rebuilder.I see a lot about new 302 blocks not being available for re-power. Isn't a 5.0 the same block? If not what is the difference? Is anyone aware of marine conversions for the 5.0? Thanks.
I couldn't get a new 302 block in 2002 . got the last of the 357s PCM and put in my 20' cuddy. The increased HP was nice. Slight mods to the engine box ,raise 1,1/4 ". Amazingly it fit the width. 351 is about that much wider as higher.You can still get a 302/5.0L Ford Marine engine. 302 and 305 cubic inches both round to 5L. Chevy and Ford started calling them 5L a while back. I prefer the numbers. Ford still makes the old 302 block and refers to it as a 302 in their crate engine offerings. The 5L in F150s and Mustangs is the newer Coyote version.
Indmar is again marinizing Ford Engines using Ford Ecoboost technology. 2.3L and a big block 6.2L. The 6.2L has a Roush supercharger creating 580 lb-ft. Think I read the 2.3L was rated at 310hp.Do you know who's marinizing it?
