    Post Mustang Engine Swap

    I finished this over a week ago but heres a nice photo progress thread on my engine swap. Overall it took me about 5 days to complete. Old engine was a stock 94 Mustang H.O. 5.0. New engine sports 3 bar GT40 heads, GT40 lower intake, Ford Motorsports SVO upper intake, FMS F cam installed straight up, Summit shorty headers, offroad H pipe, SLP catback, and I deleted the EGR and smog equipment. Sorry about the video at the end, I need to edit it but my software is not working.

    Just starting, stock engine.

    Some progress.

    About ready to come out.

    Engine out.

    Sounds mean, 5.0 always sound great with a cam. I wouldn't mind finding a 94-95 Stang GT

    Thanks. I am not going to lie though, this project had me pissed off most of the time. The car seemed to be working against every aspect of the teardown. I am glad to be done and enjoying the car but have no intention of doing much else on this one for a good long time.

    I'm not going to make any huge claims on this combo since it is basically a stock cobra engine with a cam and better exhaust/intake/ port matching. The engine in stock form is rated at 240 fwhp so I am going to guess somewhere in the neighborhood of 260-270 fwhp. Still most likely a low 14, high 13 second car. The car does feel a lot more powerful than before but the butt dyno is never a great indicator.

    Heres some pictures. Unfortunately since I go to kirkwood someone did a hit and run on my drivers door while trying to park or so it appears so my drivers door is jacked now, and someone also stole the center caps from my rims. Just cant have nice things here. Right now I still have the stock waffle rims on from when it was in storage but I eventually plan on putting the 17s back on. I also have smoked headlights on my car now too.

    tell her it will be "more efficient" with it. it sounds like it'll be a money saver, but as we all know, it'll just be "more efficient" at making power.

    Nice, I was thinking of playing the "I allready have a blower cam installed so it will not run right without one" line. Maybe a nice combo of the two will work.
