for starters, global apology from another thread, brother has been silenced and passwords have been changed to protect the innocent. :x

aah, now.

looking for informed opinions on the viability of converting either ol xt or late 60's stang to run newer generic ford engine, economy oriented for stylish daily cruiser. :?:

only in very early stages of pre plan but will appreciate opinions or ideas. anything helpful will be greatly appreciated and duly acknowledged.

thanking in advance

Are you looking at a 6 or an 8 mate?
If it's an 8 then post it up in the V8 forum.

there is a lil clue when he states "economy orientated cruiser?" so mayby "Hrdcor" is looking at a six?? An AU-I6, BA-I6 or BA XR-turbo motor would be fun.. :wink:

Yeah, 4.0 SOHC/DOHC should go in without to many problems. The biggest problem with the conversion seems to be the gearbox. The 4 speed auto wont fit without mods, and I have even heard that the 3 speed borg warner boxes have trouble fitting into the early falcons without trans tunnel mods.

You could also modernise the origional engine. It wouldnt be hard to get a EFI 250 2V or similar up and running which would be something a little unique and very cool.

have a carbed 250 xflow but yeh.... enough said.

would i be able to make some reasonable gains for cash without losing out at the pump? or better to start later and pay more to get it in. as for boxes i hear the manual 5 will fit???
