Some one will help but more info is needed; What are you planning on doing with it, drag, street, 4x4 trail or extreme? Are you planning a cage, different rear? How much time are you planning on?

Wouldn't "boxing" the frame be a personal preference? The frame without it should be able to handle even the 351 without any detrimental effects. Had to cut a part of mine to clear the headers on the right side. I did weld in the motor mount block on the right side to the cross member to make sure it wouldn't go anywhere.

depending on the headers you use some mustang headers need alot cut out of the pass side frame to fit but you should be good
