How feasible would it be to put a 352 into a 1972 Mustang coupe that has a 302 now and what would the advantages/disadvabtages be power wise and drivability?

For simplicity I would use a 302 or 351 because of ease of installation. Transmission and radiator compatibility motor mounts etc..

It would be far easier to use a 351, which is a bolt in, and has much more aftermarket support. However, if you wanted to do it, you would need to make motor mounts, swap transmissions (or bellhousing if 4 speed) make up clutch linkage if 4 speed, and then just mix and match throttle cable brackets, hoses, etc. I would advise against it as 352s are only 200-250 HP depending on how set up stock, a nice 351W or 351C would be infinitely easier for the same or more power
