For the 351W swap, you don't need to swap the K-member. You just need 93 5.0 tbird/cougar motor mounts, and even at that, if you can't find a 93 5.0, the top plates are the same, so you can use 93+ 3.8 tbird/cougar lower brackets and mounts, and the 91/92 5.0 tbird/cougar top plates. That being said, I would stick with the mod motor. The 351W will require changing the trans as well due to the different bell housing, and then you will also have to either hack job it by going carb'd, or completely re-wire the car to run the Windsor motor. Honestly, I would stick with the 2V motor, and get a supercharger for it.
