Do you find offensive putting an Ls motor in a mustang? Do you think if you put an Ls motor in your mustang, are you a true Ford Mustang guy? Thank you for your input
So if you had the money or the 351 complete, you still would or would not put the Ls in the mustang?My brother has a 6.0 already built sitting on a stand, and a 4l80e all ready to go. I don't have a rotating assembly or valve train for the 351. All we have to do is fab some motor mounts for the Team Z k member.
If I had the cash I would probably do the Ford motor. It's a tank of a block. The C4 is built. But after some health problems and a job change this project has been on hold for about 3 years now.So if you had the money or the 351 complete, you still would or would not put the Ls in the mustang?
I understand that is your car and you can do whatever you want with it, personally I would never put a Chevy motor in a mustang or ford motor in a vette. Maybe because I was around when Fun Ford Weekend came to New England Dragway and off course you could not race a mustang with a Ls engine. I don't know when Ls swapping became so popular.
If a Ford trans could be built to take that kind of power, I would have used it. So while I bleed Ford Blue, the reality of the build required the use of a "GM" based trans.
If it works better than what you have I am all for it. I just do not see the need to LS swap a Mustang when there are plenty of Ford engines around that would do exactly the same thing performance wise. It is hard to beat the durability of the 9" Ford rear end. So people use it. Same with the Glide, it can handle way more power than any Ford trans can. And the only reason for that is the after market support on the Glide based transmissions. Mine has a Reid Case and Bell housing ect. Nobody makes a SFI case for the 4R70W or AOD. If they did, I would have one of those transmissions in the car. Even if it costs more. Lord knows I spent enough on the 8.2" deck SBF in my car.How do people feel about using a 9" FORD rear in every other brand vehicle? Or 8.8's for that matter?
