For those of you who don't know I am in the process of building a 2V to drop into a foxbody... I have most, and yess I stress MOST because im far from everything, of what I need to do this build, my biggest issue is what foxbody do I put it in... I have a 89 2.3 with a perfectly fine running motor but its got some rust and body damage, I already have a door and fender for it so don't let that scare you. my problem is would I save money going a different route body wise
im really stumped
.. SO.... HERES MY THOUGHT Please give me insight
If I find a roller that use to be a 5.0 I don't have to upgrade the suspension and axel RIGHT away.. I still will at some point but it would at least be drivable
if I stick with the 2.3 I have now I wont be spending a money on a whole nother car. but if I keep the 2.3 its got rust and body damage. but the inter is in good shape probably a 7/10. but in the END I plan on swapping a 94-04 interior anyway... yes the 10 year plan
if I go with the red/black roller I would be spending 300 more but its in good shape body wise (ugly paint) but it is completely stripped on the inside.. and it used ot be a 2.3 as well so I don't know what would need done because the guy did have a 351 in it..
so stick with what I have and ruin a good 2.3, save money without buying another, but spend a lot in body work.. or find another 5.0 and Spend 1000+.. or buy this red/black and spend 1000+ on interior
I really don't know what the best route is.. ive been writing out pros and cons but the all kinda equal eachother out..
