But with car at 2700 lbs both should work out good for a weekend car. And DAM the Chevy and Ford people are ruff on each other on here lol, remember only little boys wear bow ties lol, just kidding I own both and a Jap car lol. I just want to run a all motor car to with out spray or turbo also. So any guys out there that have 331 or 408 let me know please.
    I would go with a junkyard f150 coyote. A few bolt ons and they are 450-480whp. Price is about the same as the pushrods. Nice car btw!

    My combo is estimated at/around 450 hp at the flywheel. It's a D and D Motorsports Comp Hawk 500 long block. Basically a 302 sportsman's block stroked to 342 with AFR185 heads, forged crank, Holley Systemax II Plenum intake with a custom ground cam. It's a fun car to drive, but not near as fast as a lot of the cars on this site.

    LS swap and be done with it. You can get a 6 pack of them at the yard for half of what you are planning on spending.

    if mainly drag and automatic then you have more of a case for staying with the ford
    i'm really not sure on this, but i'm fairly certain all cop Mustangs were autos.

    no offense, but have you actually weighed the car to confirm that? my good friend had an '88 LX police package car when i first built my car years back, and IIRC his car weighed right around 3100 lbs. his might have had an amp and sub in it, but it was still pretty spartan at that weight. just curious.

    cool car, looks pretty clean.
