Who will be the first? 5.8 DOHC

With the new Shelby being bad *** despite being a heavy car, the 5.8 moves that car in a hurry. With the new 5.0 becoming a popular swap for the New Edge stangs, I wonder who will be the first to install the 5.8 in one of our vehicles. I believe the previous Shelby motor has been installed in a NE.

Talk about major $$$$ but I see this becoming an amazing swap if it can be done. Dream car right there! How much do you guys think something like this will end up costing? 30k?


I know some will say the 5.0 is a better platform. Let's discuss!
