You just want to drop a motor in? Then you can drop a 351 stroke them to a lot bigger.

If the sky is the limit and you have the money, you can put anything in one!

Well if you're rich and have money to blow the largest engine, to my knowlege, that can reasonably fit into an Sn-95 Mustang is a GM LS7 motor. You'll need to do a nice deal of modifications, but it will fit, and you'll be bad as hell afterwards.

i think vcs hit the nail on the head when he asked how much he wanted to spend. if you want the LARGEST engine, ive seen people fab vette engines into rx-7s, 5.0s into focuses, etc. however, it will not necessarily be the best bang for the buck. for the amount of fabbing to drop the "largest engine possible" into a v6 stang, itd probably be cheaper to just sell the car and buy the one the big motor originally came in, with no downtime.

i wonder what it would cost to get a nice 351 and tranny installed--i assume a tranny would be needed..

well unless you want to have it carbed there is going to be a huge deal of wiring going into it.
Probably the easiest wiring would be a FAST managment system.

The 5.4L is a good base to work with and mixed with a 3.75" bore with its stock 4.165" stroke you get a nice 368 cubes (6.0 - 6028cc's)

Also if you waitRoush is working on a new 7.0L mod motor to add to their line up. On E85 alone it produced over 700rwhp. It was in one of the MM&FF magazines.
http://forums.musclemustangfastfords...-v8/index.html

I have to say though, its pretty sad when MM&FF stick to their guns on a sinking ship, any idiot can look at those pictures and know its a mod motor. They just tried to save face is all. The last post killed itfor good.

It depends. You may be able to find an engine you can rebuild, which is what I would do. Find one that is blown up and rebuild it. Yeah, def. a new transmission at somepoint. Once again, hit up a junkyard to find one. I know guys that have used old 5.0 John Deere motors. You could pull a 5.4 out of a Navigator w/ the wiring harness. But a 351 you would probably want to Carb it, which I rather have a Carb over EFI because of simplicity.

As far as 5.0s in Focuss... try twin turbo 5.4. There is one running around central ohio.

AND ISNT IT A SIN TO PUT A CHEVY BLOCK INTO A MUSTANG? AND YOU CALL YOURSELF A MUSTANG PERSON? [sm=icon_beat.gif]

If I had the cash I would dropa LS7 in the ol 93' 300ZX

I have an extra Mach1 engine that I will test fit later this summer into the 92' Z parts car we have to see if the 32V heads will clear.

If it clears then its getting a Termi motor MUWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Oh if you guys want to see LSx and LT1 converted 300ZX's then just search for Hybrid Z's and LS1 Z's and whatnot. There are a couple on youtube.com

Also a California company is making good money dropping 5.0's into Miata's
Just search for 5.0L Miata LOL

A. Chevrolet engines dont belong in mustangs
B. Mod engines are larger than their LSx rivals
C. In street applications, you fit a 385series(429/460) motor into an SN95 mustang, up to 557ci while remaining streetable! But in all reality, a 5.4L-based mod engine is your best large-cube option. Great engines, not hard to install if you know what you are doing.

Granted, GM engines don't belong in Fords, but he didn't specify brand loyalty.[8D]

so the 370/429/460 is saller than a mod motor?????? either a mod or an LS would fit far beetter and have much les suspension issues from weight.


only 3 engines would i ever swap into an sn95
mod V10
5.4 navie
termie
the 4th would be an FE bigblock cause nobody else has really done it except a small few. 360 truck block with 428 rotating assembly and 410 merc slugs and you have a 410" engine in the stang with a ton o power but even then it it would be a track car.

a cheap bigblock install would be a 370 schoolbus/dumptruck 385 series engine with a cam and intake and good carb but it would need federal emissions waivers

any engine could be made to work with money and knowledge. how about a 4.5L V6turbo diesel powerstroke?? or a 305 and no not a 305 chebby a 305 GMC big block V6 or a 351 or 400 magnum GMC V6 bigblock???


best idea is stick with the V6 factory engine and slap a blower on it

BRAND LOYALTY?!? That is a cardinal law! That is the biggest sin a Mustang Loyalist could commit. I feel bad driving a Grand Am when I own 2 Mustangs. I lose respect for anyone putting anything other than a FORD block into a Mustang. DO NOT PUT A NON-FORD MOTOR IN A MUSTANG!![:@]

Afford it? Chevy engines cost less to build than a ford motor. Ask people which is cheaper to build a 350 or a 302?But once again it is brand loyalty.
