Which guy? Definitely not the one in the article that spent $150k on the swap.
No you're right, the guy in the article didn't really show all that much common sense now that I think about it (and read it )... But in general from what I've seen the statement still stands about the price difference for the "common man" lol.

Bmr4life, I don't see how the amount of posts correlates with the amount of knowledge, or say that someone has in this forum.
Anyways, I think the build is completely logical, considering a 4.6 takes more work to get power out of; but I think the fabrication it takes to put an LS in a non-GM vehicle isn't always logical.
Ford boys, don't get me started on how overly confident ya'll can be in your engines, the only reliably powerful engine ya'll have came out with is the new Coyote 5.0L which I STILL think is under powered.
I am swapping an LS2 into a 1967 Mustang Coupe, I am also using a Super T-10 4-Speed transmission out of a 70's GM. The power-train choice is completely logical due to the fact that I will be participating in both trans am and autocross races. I am also using an 8.8 rear end, which I will say is very strong.
Lets face it, this build was just to get attention, Not smart!!! The amount of money and work that went into this project does not make sense. Aside from motor and trans swap and the not so fancy yellow interior it looks like a mustang!!!!!! so Why not build a ford motor and go that way, for sure with that kind of cash it could be ordered and purchased, easier to install and no contraversy everybody would say job well done.
Someone has too much time and cash on their hands.
Unlikely or Ungodly Union: 1000hp Vette Powered Mustang
I have to say that I have hated Fords for over 40 years, that is until I rode my sons 98 Cobra SVT convertible, which my wife and I now own. I am a GM guy at heart, I have owned about 14 cars mostly Pontiac, 2 Opels, a Charger and my first car a '65 Mustang.
Hey WHY NOT!!! The Mustang has to be the most loved American car and the Corvette the best handling American car. My best friend just passed this July. Anyone who lived around Manassas, Va and wanted to go fast must have meet him or hear of him " FAST EDDIE". He had 2 cars in "HOT ROD" magazine, a yellow '34 Willy's and a fox body called "RED ALERT". Any way he had a '94 Viper with over 1100HP to the wheels and the point is that it doesn't much matter to me what engine is under the hood, but how quick it gets to the finish line!!!
