The second generation Lightning motor is a bone *** stock 5.4L 2V that Ford dropped a M112 onto. Not only does the Lightning setup not fit in a Mustang without a SERIOUS cowl hood, it is a ticking time bomb and the Lightning owners are well aware of this. There are all sorts of tricks to keep them together, the most common one is to always leave OD off so it can't go to WOT in OD which almost always results in a blown motor.
What I'm saying is, that is a completely and pointless boneheaded swap. If one was going to go that route one should just grab a dirt cheap NPI 2V donor car and a cheap 4 banger fox, do a modfox and run a 150 shot or a small blower.
