Heads, cams, intakes, distributors, headers, all work on any small block Chevy (they started to get away from this in the mid-80's and the new LSx motors have abandoned it completely). It's a beautiful thing.
i agree 100% with the money in change I could find walking a mall parking lot I could build a 500hp chevy 350...but id rather walk 3-4 parking lots and build a 351C

And how many cams does the 4.6/5.4 have compaired to the LS1?

You want to get into engine swapping, lets see an iron block 6.0 version of the LS1 dropped into an f-body. Then compair it to this swapped 5.4 in a mustang.

Thats right, you cant compair it.

Re: If you could...

It never ends lol. I dont care if the LS1 is faster. Good for it being faster. I like Mustangs. End of story. That is all that matters and all that should matter. Speed is nice and the Mustang has speed...

yea but whats the cost of the 5.4 swap? thats a ****load of money "to be in ls1 territory" Id rather have a new H/C/I on my outdated pushrod motor and be more then "in ls1 territory"

Exactly my thoughts. I have built several very fast Camaros but I have a V6 stang!!! Why you ask??? Well I like the stang. I like the inside cockpit I like the stance. Sure I looked at the Camaros and Firebirds but they seemed dated. I will always think the Small block Chevy is really the greatest hot rod engine ever for the best bang for the buck and ease of maintenance but the Chevy cars themselves just weren't getting it.
