460 swap in a fox

Post  69F100 on August 4th 2012, 3:27 pm

What all is needed to put a 460 and c6 in a mustang 1989 couple this will be a stock 1986 carbed 460 running cast manifolds out of a motorhome. I have a guy at work going to buy the 460 and c6 trans I have out of a motorhome.I know he will have to change the oil pan and get motor mounts what easle does he need.He just wants to get it in and driveable and get a feel for the car with a 460, we will up grade the factory intake,timing chain to the early model,and cam change.Then he going to upgrade the heads to aluminum and build
some more hp later on after he get the car setup for a bbf.So right now he just want to get the car setup not going with header until the next up grade on the motor and he decides on what heads he wants.

I helped a friend of mine a couple years ago put one in a fox body for his daughter to run street class. We set the engine/c6 in as low in chassis w/truck pan as possible.made the engine/tranny mounts and beat up on the trans tunnel abit.Kept the stock cast manifolds and I bent some 2.5 to 3" exhaust for it. He bought a cougar xr7 scoop for carb clearance issues. Installed a set of sprint car rear tires and 3.55 gears and she went racing. bone stock 76 pickup 460 other than a 750 vacumn advance Holley. 13.90's off the trailer and let it shift its self. Good lil bracket car.
