Figured some may be interested to see this swap/build... 1997 mustang with 80k miles, clean as hell texas car that my GF and I are building..i Originally bought for myself, but she wanted the car...so i gave it to her...and here we are, She's doing most of the work with my guidance and assistance along the way....anywho, heres the specs. 414" Lsx with 6 bolt ls7 ported heads borgwarner s480 billet wheel with race cover frozenboost air/water intercooler (front mounted) frozenboost heat exchanger (front mounted, since this will be street driven quite regularly) water storage tank will be mounted in the trunk, not sure on size yet, but it will be for tossing ice in at the drag strip or half mile/mile race events. fully built 8.8 rear 4l80e trans going with florida5.0 gauge bezel, with speedhut gauges Car will have full interior, interior is currently tan, we stripped a fresh 2004gt with dark charcoal leather and plastics from a salvage yard, doing a custom rear seat delete with a pair of sundown sv2 8" subs, using a pair of 1500.1 kicker amps, doors and rear deck panel will get kicker component rs65's with a kicker 650.4 powering them, and she wants a double din...so likely going with a pioneer as ive had good luck with them in previous builds. anyways, car should very easily make 1000 horsepower, and likely in the 1300ish range turned up on good fuel without trying to nuke bomb it... plan is to have the car out within the next few months(we just bought it) heres some pics we've taken just goofing around, we will take more now that there is a build thread involved. parts gathered so far... underside of this thing while we were taking the motor out... Engine bay is 100% stripped right now, we are in the process of welding in scott rod panels, and smoothing the entire engine bay, right now its going to be painted satin black...after this season of racing...the car will be getting painted house of kolors tangelo pearl Heres my gf making a goofy pose after we got the motor yanked out and started stripping the engine bay... There you have it...Ill continue updating this thread as updates occur...and i realize this LS swap isnt for everyone, just realize whatever you comment negative...its just wasted effort...nothing will change the direction of this build, We are going LS for several reasons...I've already got the motor and all engine parts needed basically, I can tune LS motors myself with HPtuners as i have it on my laptop...and im very very familiar with LS stuff...Really isnt worth it to try and stick with ford power, and spend the money needlessly for a motor that will handle the power we want to make....when i can put the money elsewhere in the car on nice parts.
