A good friend of mine has a complete 351w pulled from a Gen 1 Lightning, he said he'd sell it for $1,500.

I understand. I was just throwing that idea out there. I'd actually like to possibly use that engine in my car someday. Does anyone have pics of a fox body with a Gen 1 Lightning motor?

vristang posted a big article on 351w swaps and all thats involved other than the motor , but it seems worth it for the increased hp and torque, heres the link to the thread: https://mustangforums.com/m_1918745/tm.htm
