5.0L Conversion into Falcon Set-Up

Been many moons since I dabbled in 5.0L engines, but this spring I am converting the Falcon to a 5.0L engine from a doaner 88 Mustang. I’d like to see what you guys think of this of the set up I had in mind:

· Stock 5.0L short block
· AFR 165 heads
· Edelbrock 7123 Intake
· Ford X303 Cam
· 75mm Throttle Body
· 1.7 Roller Rockers
· Dougs 661Y Headers
· Aluminum Radiator (built for Falcon with corrected inlet/outlet ports)

I know I will need to run a return line back to the tank. I plan to use the filler neck for this unless I come up with something better. I have the Mustang’s wire harness and I plan on using a stock A9P computer. I plan on A/C so I am keeping the serpentine belt system with all of the pumps (minus the smog pump of course). Car currently has a rebuilt AOD with a shift kit and I run the Ford 8” with a 3:90 gear and a Detroit Locker. Do any of you see an issue with this combo? Plan is for a summer cruiser and occasional pass down the ¼ mile. Thanks!

1964 Falcon Futura
