If the 5.8/351 were the easy option that a 5.0 is, that would be a good alternative. The reality is that a 351 is just enough bigger that it's a giant pain to swap in (header fitment, etc) where all the engineering legwork was done for you ahead of time on the 5.0 swap (just need a donor Explorer).
