It's a late 70's Fairmont with a body kit..... Get over it folks. Go outside and throw a rock in any direction to find your own car to gay up with billet interior parts and the newest shifter of the month from the MM&FF ad pages.

To the OP I think your best bet is to try and mount the original ford sending units in the LSx motor. It would be kind of fun to figure it all out. You may have to tap a few holes out along the way.

put a 4v mod in a z06. i dont care. its not my car.

ill do what i want with my cars, and you do what you want with your cars.

you can start telling me what to do with my cars when you start paying for them....

Throwing a 2JZ-GTE in a Grand Natinal GNX would be a cool swap, as would a late model Firehawk, or Camaro SS 1LE with a built, big bore/stroker Windsor.

The point is that these are desirable cars that many people envy, and when you take them, and F they in the A many people think damn that sucks, why not use a Regel instead of a GN, or a base Vette instead of a Z, or a v6 or base V8 Fbody instead or the more rare, higherend ones, or a lesser Mustang instead of a Terminator.
We who are swapping don't give a #### what other people think of brand-x swaps.

The fact that you are trolling in here says otherwise. You brought no technical knowledge or help of any kind regarding the original question : gauges. You, like a lot of others cannot play nice in this section. Why don't you take your sh..t and and get the f..k out. We'll make sure to call you when we need an infusion of wisdom.

When you take the highender, more rare, more desirable models of these cars that cost a lot more to buy in any forum, and do something like this to them that's you looking for attention. A Terminator doesn't need help in the motor department, neither does a Z06, neither does a Viper, neither does a TT MKIV Supra.

I mean don't front man. Hell I like getting rises out of people too. Its fun, and funny thinking you're aggravating someone else. If I had say a 70 Chevelle SS LS6 with a new big displacement Boss 6.2 swapped into it I would flaw it, and laugh at all the people I would offend by it, but I can see where that would piss off some fan of classic Chevy Muscle Cars.

Look the OP can do what he wants to. I'm not going to loose sleep over it. I'm not pissed about it, it's just a dumb swap for any other reason than what I mentioned. Your average Mustang roller is a dime a dozen, a Terminator roller is not, and you've just taken the thing that made people love, and desire it over most any other Mustang ever built away from it.
You know absolutely jack #### about me. I'll fill you in on my outlook....Its plastic, composite, and metal...all of them. Nothing is sacred. Chop'em all.

Nobody gives a flying f..k what your opinion is/might be/ could be/ or otherwise. Do you know how to make gauges work with this setup? Yes/no? The question is simple. If no, go troll somewhere else. You turned this thread into a cluster f..k.

By the way what part of "mixed platform" do you not understand? Do we have to draw a pretty picture for your thick head ?

The RPM gauge get's it's signal from the ECU. How will the ECU work with the LS?

I think I have figured out how to make it work. Solution = Ford ECU/senders + LS motor. No GM ECU. That's how I'm doing mine. Should be running in the spring. Fingers are crossed.

If it was a 99-01 cobra or a fox,maybe no one would have even looked twice but the bar setting prodigy termi would not of been my first acceptable donor of an lsx. You will get some looks on the street but not on any mustang forums, you should have seen this hatred coming your way sir.

Had a friend that put an lsx in a sn95 v6 chassis and he couldn't get the factory pins to even come close to matching to the stock ford cluster. What he did was order all 6 gauges from Auto-Meter and made a custom A-M Cluster. Best of luck with the car and on here!
