Does anybody pump up the V6 fox bodies???

The only one I've ever seen is the 10 second one from SSM.

I would love to get one of the 4 eyed fox bodies and drop in a carbed 4.2. just to be different.

I'm thinking I could buy a cheap fox GT and swap the engine into my sn95 then throw the 4.2 that I have right now into the fox.
If this guy still has one rusting away in his back-yard I might try work out a deal with him.

What about the motor mounts and the drive shaft? I am sure there are several complications for a every day person to do a conversion.

I think all the motor mounts were the same from 84-95 for the GT 5.0.
So the 84-98 V6 motor mounts should be the same. if not, I'll just purchase some motor mounts for the 3.8, for whatever year I have.
I think there was a slight difference with how long the transmission input shaft was. Which means I would need a correct year bell housing. I'll just keep the transmission change the bell housing then I won't have to mess with the drive-shaft.

Seems to me that there are many more things that are cheaper, and less complicated one could do to be different. If you really want to be different drop a small diesel in it, or better yet convert it to all electric. That stuff would be different and worth showing off.

Just get a V8, if you for whatever reason don't want to do that then go with a 2.3 turbo. Really it doesn't make sense if you getting another car to not just get what you want right off the bat. V8 fox's are everywhere, and cheap too if you don't mind doing some work.

Swapping v6's between mustangs sounds like an incredible waste of time, but to each his own.

Find a nice notch and a decently built V6 would put you in the 12's N/A, granted everything is set up right, they are stupid light cars.. Hell that 278rwhp one of SSM's runs 11.8's on motor, if I took the motor out of my car and put in one I would be running low 12's (with proper suspension/weight reduction)

Notch's are pretty rare where i'm at, I've seen probably only 3.(2 of them were on craigslist in nearby counties) I was thinking of buying a cheap fox hatchback GT, swapping the 5.0 into my 1995, and the 4.2 into the fox.
Then I could have a V8 in my 95, and the V6 in the lighter fox.
Then I could achieve two goals, I could have a V8 and with some money I build the V6(maybe make it faster than the V8) I mainly want a V8 for the beautiful sound that it makes.

The engine wiring harness be changed and the c.p.u. be flashed for the 5.0. Is that it to put it in a 95 body? Kind of noob in this area. I don't know if the 99 5.0 was fuel injected.

the 99 didn't use a 5.0, it had a 4.6 in it, I think a 3v, might be 2v. I don't keep up with the 4.6's. I like pushrod engines better.

Almost all engines used fuel injection(TBI or multi-port) by the late 80's. IF you wanted to be unique though, I think they do sell carb kits for the 4.6L.

The 99-04 GTs were 2v, the mach 1 and cobras were 4v, i think only the newer engines are 3v
