new project

so here in the next few months im going to be starting my new project, i bought a 1997 shell, no engine no tranny no nothing, someone had bought it and was going to use it as a project but never started, anyways i also bought a R34 motor and tranny and rear end from a skyline from japan, now i dont have it yet shipping company said it could take a few weeks, now im not sure if the motor is even going to fit but im going to try it and see if it will work, now i know the rear end is going to take more modding then i really wanna do so im going to have a pro do it, there will also be a crap ton of mods done to the body and trim.
the name on the motor is neo 6 and its a twin turbo setup that said it has roughly 660 horses, but if the motor doesnt fit then ill try something else.

---------- Post added at 02:41 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:31 AM ----------

Ill get additional info on the motor in the next few days ill have to update yall at that time to see if my numbers are correct

This will be an enormous undertaking. I'd say its blasphemy to put a Japanese anything in a mustang, but to each his own. If it all works out you will at least have one unique mustang....

It would be different to drop in a hemi, or LS motor, and at least it would still be American. And sound better, and get way more torque, and give you a better base line for more power, and look better.

I will take that into concideration, I just bought everything and was like now what do I do with it, thought about building a drift car but there is no drift tracks around were I live so I thought just build show car but we only have one show a year so I didnt know what else to build so I thought about putting them together and see what I came up with, maybe I can sell the R34 and get a different setup but idk

You'll find that a ricer will pay big $$$$$$$$$ for that set up. R34's are like the holy Grail to them. Could make enough to drop in a coyote 5.0 with harness tranny and all if you play it right.

Re: new project

its been done I am sure, being unique vs doing something fun vs budget vs not doing something stupid is a fine line to walk sometimes

So if I get the R34 setup sold ill try another setup, what motors will fit in the 96 stangs and the coyote motor I dont know if ill have enough to buy that, I bought the skyline whole but because of the year I was unable to have it imported so im only getting the front half of the car and the rear end and I only payed 2000 for the entire car

Your importing it..... The ricers will give everything they got for it just cause it's a skyline powertrain..... You can make anything work but simple drop ins will be ford engines... I always thought it would be cool to see a 4.0 in a stang. Only downside is that ohc with it's double timing chains. Right now I'm researching head designs to see what out there has the same bolt pattern as a 3.8 to maybe have a dohc set up or just something unique but retaining ease of install to a point

So you've spent 2k buying a Neo 6 (which is a steal) and a couple hundred bucks on a mustang. I would scrap the mustang and drop that motor into an S13/14. It'll save you a bunch of money and headache. And you'll still have an highly respected car.

Did some looking around and some forums are sayin a 96 tranny will bolt onto a 4.0 but there is a guy selling a expidition for 600 bucks with a 5.4 in it so im wondering if that will fit also

Don't see why it wouldn't work. Check the specs of the 5.4. Also make sure the spark plug holes aren't stripped out. If they have never been changed or never-seized then you may run into issues there.

My first truck had a 5.4 and It blew out the rear driver side spark plug and the coil pack was in 3 pieces I looked it up and it seems to happen to a lot of 5.4's

Just watch those aluminum heads they have a bad habit of stripping out the plug holes. People think they can just slap in the plugs and go on but it's not that simple.

I don't believe so I looked it up when it happened and a lot of 5.4's did it. It cost me 150 to fix it tho 60 for coil pack $3 for spark plug and $80-$90 to actually fix it but was done in 30 mins

They put a heli coil in the head. Cost them like 10 bucks give or take.

We just did one at our shop. All they do is tap the hole then thread in a heli coil and put the plug back in. It's more time consuming than anything.
