Ford Mustang Coyote 5.0L 4-Valve engine into a 1990LX?

I was thinking of picking up a 90LX that a CO-Work is junking. Does anyone know some who's made this engine swap? I will have to rebuild the whole car insideout becasue it's in pretty bad shape. good Idea, or bad idea?

I'd look for a '11+ GT that has been totaled. It'll have just about everything you'll need to do the swap.

Unless you stumble on a wrecked GT and get the motor for a grand, you're looking at a lot of dough.

A member over on s197 forums did the shelby GT 500 swap on his Fox Coupe, complete with dashboard and floor. Car is gorgeous!

I'm not too worried about the cost, it's a long term project to teach my 10 year old about cars so time and money invested has no vaule than that of preparing a boy to be a young man. I was reading that it's could be expensive.

I will keep that in mind. It's a great way to get a lot in one swoop.

I was really just going to buy a crate engine and build it the way I want. I am thinking a 6/7 year project. I think I'd top out at around 25/30K so the inital coust would be 18K to get the motor/trans in and mounted. I am however curious if it's a better cheaper way to get where I am going becasue I have no rush behind the project.

I immediately thought of that thread when I saw this one. Yes it can be done & this guy did an incredible job. Even swapped in the dash.

That's what I hope, and my daughter is 9 and she's interested too, but I am not sure how long that will last lol. My dad did the same thing with me and his Ford Bronco; so I'm trying to keep the tradition going.
