If there is a problem with the race starter, it will be with the number of teeth on your flywheel and the alignment of the gears when the starter is installed. The only way I know for sure whether it will work is to try it and if it doesn’t., take it back. Hopefully you could contact Ford at their hot line at (586) 468-1356 and they could tell you. I have one on my 302 and it works great with lots more room at the headers.
