I love it.
It's a Project car.

But the right way too.
I'm prolly gonna drop around 6-8 grand in her.

My cousin is a mechanic and has one like that. You wouldn't expect it to be anything special if you looked at it but he has every possible thing done to the engine, its supercharged, ect... He laid down some rubber for us at a family reunion and I swear he spun the wheels for a 1/4 of a mile.

Congrats have fun hookin it up. If you ever need any help or tools let me know and I can help.

Well Im gonna make this car really nice.

For starters the Enginbe in it is Going to be fun to blow cuz I'm getting a 351 to throw in it.
I'm gonna Go the whole nine like Edlebrock heads and stuff.
My dad Is a Master Bodyman and a very accomplished mechanic.
Plus he has worked on thousands of these models. He was Working for a ford repair shop when they came out.
He knows them top to bottom.

I'm leaving it white, and I'm gonna Do a white and black theme.
I'm putting the 351 with stainless exhaust and all the good stuff Under it.
And I'm gonna Gt body kit it.
It's Gonna be fast.
I might Super it, cant decide I really like turbos too.

Just as a Concept, not even close to colors I want but this is a good Idea.

firstly, you have an LX with the inline 4. Putting a V8 in there is gonna be more trouble than it's worth. secondly learn how to put a paragraph together.

Not true....Fox bodies came with a 5.0 stock too in the same compartment.....a big block will be tight...fun project though.....
My sons is a turbo 4, cammed to the max wih an exhaust I built from scratch.....still looks like a stock LX on the outside!!!
Secondly, If putting a proper paragraph together is required to share here we are all in trouble except Vike.....

I dont like notch backs... I honestly dont like that era of mustang at all. I might have to settle for one.. but I dont like them. I will be looking for a 70's- early 80's Firebird/Trans Am, Camaro of the same age, or a NEW Mustang, or before the 80's Mustang.


Have fun with it though, they are good cars. But what ever you do... please dont throw a turbo in it... That sounds like **** on a muscle car. Takes away the roar/meaness/rough feeling to the car. Makes it feel like a Japanese sports car. Eh.. Supercharger yes... turbo no.

mAN you Must be a car expert huh.
Well I Will have absolutely No problem building it.
I'm getting the Engine for close to 1000$ and The machanic Portion is a breeze when Your family Owns a Shop.
So more trouble than its worth I say Hell No.

As for Putting together a Proper paragraph i really Don't Give a $#@%
It's A forum Board If you cant read what im saying then don't look at it.

I'm just letting you know in advance you're gonna have to do a lot more than just put a motor in there and call it good.

Do you just sporadically hit the shift key or something? It's the only thing I can think of tO caUse soMEthing likE this to hAppen.

He said his Father was an experienced bodyman and technician....
I am too and my kids and I get into doing those kind of auto projects...
And for me, it IS like put a new powertrain in there and call it good, so I'm sure his father is as capable of it as I am......

you might want to do some fact finding on the swap that you want to do before you think about talking smack to me about not having a clue.

This is a final warning to both of you. You are both walking a fine line and I will have absolutely no problem banning either or both of you. So take your problems off this forum or you yourself will find yourself off this forum.

enough is enough. I don't care if I get banned for this but you've failed to address half of the concerns needed to perform a swap like a 302 or 351 into a fox. look here and educate yourself: http://www.jason.fletcher.net/tech/v8/v8.htm

with spending about 45 secondss on google and googling "fox body 302 swap" I have effectively proven that you are the one who doesn't have a clue.

Ban me. I don't care. It was honestly worth it.

Staying on topic means you go back you read the first post and you post about that. If you can't understand and follow that simple rule maybe we can help you find a different forum. This thread is about twitch's new car, if you don't have anything to say about it then don't post, period.

I'm getting New Speakers For it soon.

I have the donor 5.0 for the suspension and Idk If I wanna Go as Big as a 351 anymore. It's Controversal Cause I have a 5.0 at my dissposal. I could have My friend Eric Build that. It all Injected and Crazy fun. Then The best Part is it has the After Market ECM so I don't have to Search around for that. Kinda Found It by luck.

Oh yah, He Baller-59, I don't to have beef, I never said that You didn't have a clue I just didnt feel Like getting into detail. You just Jumped On my case about how I can't do it when All the things you were reffering to Were takin into consideration Long time Before I bought the car. I understand How the Swap works.

I understand the wieght difference mount difference and the Obviouse ECM.
What I was saying is that I don't have to worry About any of that. My dad Has done Hundreds of them and He is Going to "TEACH" me Cause I'm no pro. He has been Telling me what to look for parts wise and what it's gonna do.

On behalf Of Twitch's Alternate Personality I Appologize. :-P
Sorry Mods.
