vote to remove ls based builds from this forum

I know this is a mustang and ford forum. but I don't see why it should support ls based builds. So I say we should vote to remove them. Let alone why all the chevy guys put a sbc in a 32 ford. Just gay.

only issue there is that it will make the average ET 2 seconds slower if you do that.

Plus kick out people who infer that a Ford is inferior to a Chevy.

Ford could have spent millions to upgrade the SBF and use aluminum blocks, titanium rods, and variable valve timing. They could have actually developed the Cleveland head, which basically powers all NASCAR engines. But Ford didn't do any of that, and we have bigger than SBF OHC engines now. It's about apples and oranges, but I still prefer to use the proper engine manufacturer engine in any car.

If cars were as cheap as about 20 years ago and I was rich, I'd build a 70's Corvette with an EFI SBF stroker to play with at the track, just to piss off the biased Chevy people. I am not prejudiced, but I do have a bias against people who are biased for dumb reasons(like people say, "because everyone knows blah blah blah.")

Have fun with this, but I'd leave it alone and let good examples stand up for the SBF.

I had to run a Fox with a big block Chev with 300 horse of nitrous in the final last week.

I moved myself voluntarily from true street (which I fit) to middleweight so the race would be closer.

Middle weight was anything you want to run as long as it was back-half only and 28/29 tires. Heavy weight was full chassis car.

So got my 3210 pound 8.2 deck Ford with quiet mufflers and full interior, on tires that fit inside the factory wheel wells, in among "race cars" with fire shooting out of fender exits. LOL

I gapped every one of them, and my data log shows I was full throttle for 2 seconds against the big block Chev power stang in the final, then 30-60% throttle the rest of the way.

I told the Chev Stang driver I was sorry he made a mistake that cost him the race. He said "I din't make no mistake".

I said, "You sure did. You put a chevy motor in your Mustang." We all had a good laugh about it, and then they changed the rules. Now I have to run my street car with quiet mufflers in unlimited class against full chassis cars, because all the Chevy-stangs are all butt hurt by a 302 deck height Ford with mufflers.

Video of me back peddling to not gap a BBC / nitrous / back half car too badly in final round. He should have stayed SBF power.

hey we can become like the 4 eyed forum and kick everybody out who even thinks about modding one of the 4 eye cars. Unfortunately forums have been slowly dying out with Face book being what everybody is on. Which I do not like as its so hard to find a good group. Most of the Mustang guys with LS based cars are on LS1 tech as they have a whole bunch of conversions and hybrids there. To me it's just Hot Rodding, whether it's a Honda, Camaro, Mustang or even the lowly Dodge. we need to keep the sport growing as the next generation seems to be too buried in their xboxes.

Damn those defective mouses and keyboards...making people go out of their way to click on things they don't like and then talk about it.
I feel really guilty that I didn't get the support of wywindsor before I decided to spend my own money on my build.

I honestly do not understand why everyone gets so bent out of shape over this. Big deal somebody put a LS motor in THEIR car. I mean honestly do you stay up late at night worrying about it?? lol who cares

FYI nobody would care if this section was removed....its not like everyone is running to corral to learn about ls swaps

The problem with any forum is there's fan boys and there's enthusiasts. Just wish the fan boys would go away. Build your car any way you wish. Stay out of this forum if you don't like what's being posted.

only reason I went LS was because my 302 came with 2 bolt mains, and to achieve my goal hp/et I needed AM block/internals/heads etc... I spent 1/2 the price I would of on a BARE dart block on a complete running 6.0 with trans that comes with aluminum heads, just my .02

I also think as we see more 5.0 coyote's at the yard we will see more of them being swapped. A much better platform then the old 302. I've already seen a few and they do look good.

It's their car, they can build it their way. Did you give them any money to help fund the build ?

A lot of people have put the 9" in many different makes for decades.
People put sbc in old 20-40's fords for years and still doing it. Where's all the complaints about that ?
Is it ok for for someone to put a powerglide in a ford ?
A few are putting import motors in fords, You didn't mention that.

We all have things in this world we don't like or feel is sacrilegious. Would you like someone to tell you that you can no longer post on here because of how you built your car ?

This whole Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge crap is getting old and stupid. All it does is show that persons level of stupidity.

The whole part of hot rodding is to build what YOU want and enjoy it.

Make sure you get your information from the internet gurus that haven't built ****, they did sleep at Holiday Inn last night, and we have a few of those gurus right here on this forum.

If they bought a GM motor, yes. As a taxpayer, I helped fund the manufacturer.

I think a little controlled hating goes a long way in making people motivated. I'm 65 years old, and I've been racing since I was 16. In 1970 I was on the AMC factory race problem.

One reason I bought an AMC was because I could irritate Chrysler, Ford, and GM owners, although the main reason was because my car faster than almost all of their cars and cost less.

Stopping the controlled punishment between car people is like not bringing a whip to a bondage party. Rather than ban whips, less just use the safe word "LS". LOL

Is this yellow bullet or a mustang forum. I know you can put what ever motor you want in a car. good for you . I see there are some of you not brand loyal, fine.

That's why the guy that put up a referral to a. Don't post if you don't have something good to say has problems. if you don't like some one else's opinion go away. I'm not here to bust asses just to help the guy who want's to build a ford.

the guy who put's together a mixed platform generally does it because of price and has no real input as to why and how he picked this combo.


is this not fun. so if you don't like what I post I don't care

I am still trying to figure out why LS guys are on Ford forums talking about their builds. What? LS1 tech not kissing your ass enough? Yellow Bullet not tickling your balls anymore? Just trying to get a rise out of someone...anyone? If your going to build one, at least be kind enough to thank me for helping fund your build. And yes, Tesla owners....this means you too.

Thats OK, you will need that $3 for the next JY motor when that one blows up. I am glad someone is keeping the JY in business. Good luck with the install in the trailer park. I hope it does not rain on you.

I don't get it, If someone wants to install a 5 hp Briggs and Stratton in their car, it won't affect me 1 way or the other. I like Ford engines. I like Chevy engines. Hell, I like some Chrysler engines, and air cooled VW's kick ass. Hot rodding has always been about going as quick as you can within your given budget, and engine swapping has been the way to do it from the very beginning. If your car is quick, I like it. If it is quick and different, I like it better. Quit being butthurt about what others do with their cars and money. And lets face facts, none of the very quickest Mustangs out there are Ford powered. That should incite a riot, lol
