BBF 532 vs Ls motor

Looking to get some insight.
I have 1990 trunk car mustang. Its completely gutted and besides the sterring wheel dash and suspension. The future of this car is a track only drag car, to go as fast as possible on a limited budget ( the american dream).

I am looking at two options. One is a big block 532ci short block ford that i can get for 1000.00. The only part i have at the moment for the swap is a msd distributor.

The next option would to do a some sort of lsx swap. I am open to any and all variations of this line of motors. I can get a complete 5.3 with 110xxx miles for 600 or less.

Thanks in advance fellas!

There's no replacement for displacement

Well..it's hard to beat starting off 200c.i. ahead of an LS motor!! IMO a Pure Drag car (on a budget)where streetability,handling,mpg's don't matter= BBF with A460 heads/intake,solid roller,PG trans..and 2 plates,or a fogger(whatever the rest of the car can handle). 1,000 h.p. has been done many,many times with stock blocks. I know of one making an itsy bitsy bit more than that,with a fogger on it. Can an LS can make it to that level with a BIG turbo...or maybe a boat load of N2O?? Sure,but I can't see an LS being as durable at those power levels..and definitely not as cheap,but hopefully some of the hardcore LS guys will chime in..
