How can i get a 2011 mustang engine inside a 67 fastback?

im interested in dropping a 2011 engine in from cjpony.com but am wondering how much labor this would involve, and what else besides the engine of course would be needed? thanks!

You would need every single part of the drivetrain, from the engine, transmission, wiring harness, computer, fuel lines and tank assembly, and exhaust system back to the catalysts.

not likely , the engine you are talking about most likely would'nt even come close to fitting in the engine compartment , then you have the transmission which is larger , then you have the exhuast . and and the original radiator in a fastback would not work with the new engine . you also have quite an array of engine wiring and computer moduals as well and lastly,,, even if you could fit that engine in that car , the suspension and brakes would not handle it . it would rip it apart

Well... this almost as hard as asking change the chassis of the 67 to the 2011 mustang chassis.

You can use a car performance simulator to virtually do the swap and see how the fastback is going to perform after, try at http://www.nxgtrsim.com

It can be done, but how much work depends on the v6 or v8, the six will phycialy fit, but the v8 will take a lot of surgery to the engine bay..

It will not fit without cutting the shock towers out and replacing the front subframe and K-member. Its a ridiculous amount of work.
