Terminator swap

I recently purchased a 93 4banger. Posting here since the 2.3L section seems to be a ghost town. Anybody ever done a terminator swap here? Whether you had a 5.0 or 2.3L? Did you swap everything including IRS, interior, etc? Or just the motor?

I don't think that anyone who is active on this website even has a modular fox swap let alone a terminator swap.
It seems to me that the engine and transmission and maybe the front seats are going to be the only major components that are practical to swap, but with enough time and money anything is possible.

Google it, lots of Fox terminators out there, more than you'd think. Pretty much, what you need to do is find an entire wrecked Terminator and a clean Fox, preferably a notch. It doesn't matter what model the Fox is because you aren't keeping anything. You swap just about everything from the donor car to the fox.

A clean donor will be between $6k and $8k if the seller is reasonable. You will not be able to piece one together for less than that. As far as the rearend it all depends what you want to do. You can use the IRS or an SRA.

Any particular reason you are set on this swap? If you are looking for a boosted motor with OEM reliability, and trying to stay in the Ford family... have you thought about a second generation Lightning motor?

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.

Oh. Didn't know Ford neglected to change anything internally when they slapped the blower on top of it. Yeah, forget that nonsense, then.
