Default LS1 into a Fox body??

I was looking at a few 5.0's Fox body style ealier today on the net that had LS1 or LSx motors. I wanted to get your "opinion" in regards to that swap. Like do you like to do it, hate it, also if any one here has done one let us know...any disscusion regards to it is cool. Thanks!

it's kinda like a girl who used to be a guy.

if you never found out, it might be ok.
as soon as you find out, it's really bad.

I think it's stupid. Keep the LS1 swaps to RX-7s.

Oh sh*t it's the same one I just posted up. I know all you here are against that cool it's all your opinions but I wouldn't mind doing that swap. I did own a WS6 before and that motor is bad *** and I'm a huge fan of Fox's which I have know. Damn I can just imagine that power of that motor on that Fox. LS1 motor are light and Fox's are light as well. Sweet combo.

Terrible idea, but I'm a purist. Ford makes lots of good engines too, not just the 5.0 HO, like someone said, the Cobra engine would be awesome.

Funny thing, I was going to say it's almost as bad as putting a 350 in an RX-7, but I guess that was covered. If anything put that rotary in a fox lol.

I don't think its horrible, I think its ok. I just don't understand why someone would go out of their way to do it because you can get plenty of great motors from ford. 5.0L cammer
and others.

But say you came across an ls1 and had a fox... like I said, I don't think its bad, just not something I would do.

Now what I am against is putting an import motor in a domestic vehicle [:'(]

I honestly believe if you put an LS1 in a Fox (or any Ford for that matter) you should be shot......Kinda like the guys on Pinks that put the 355 in the Fox.

And........Lucky......the women in your signature makes me warm all over.......damn she is HOT!!!!!!!!
