V8? Why Not?
« on: 10:27:44 PM / 03-Sep-06 »
I'm seriously considering getting a carb - v8 for my s-12....
pick-n-pulls have these in abundance im sure.
Any input? What do you think would fit? im almost serious about trying this, i would have to buy a new DD because im sure it would take a while..

pick up a 302 and a C4 tranny.  it WILL fit in there.  grab one out of a fox body stang and brab a set of econoline heads (i hear they flow WAY better, good junk yard performance).  it will fit in there way nice, take up less room then a VG and way about the same.  hell, get some aluminum heads if you're concerned about the weight.  the after market for the 302 is SUBSTANITIAL so getting high numbers will be cake.  not to mention the sweet low end tq.  dont listen to anyone that says they dont rev like a 4 cyl.  thats some gay bullshit.  ive owned well over 30 cars now.  anything from 4-8 cyl, straight to v's.  a properly setup v8 will rev just as well and provide a much nicer hp/tq curve.  good luck.  lemme know if you need direction of some forums for info on the swap or just general ford/chevy/chrystler info

I'm all for the V8 idea.
I don't know of anyone on this forum doing it yet.

Yup that's very true Premo. A buddy of mine has a 68 stang with a .030 over 302. That thing can sling 8500-9000 all day. It's rather insane to hear it. hell....I watched him stand that thing on the rear bumper last year. Bent up the rear liscence plate in the process. He had to move his battery cutoff switch because when he was doing that before it was shutting off the power to the car...lol

HUH?

anyways the 302 will fit but there's one thing premo left out, your firewall has to be doctor'd to accomodate the bigger engine. once done you are about to subject a 4cyl to rigours of a powerful V8. It'll be like taking your car off-roading without the off-roading. If you ever visit Rio Grande valley in south texas theres alot of hybrids running around. the most impressive is a Pinto with a 351W fully blown. His car's chassis and basically everything original was reinforced due to the vibrations of the engine.

Good luck with the concept and the idea if you need some Silvia-Stang body design I got a few from when I was thinking of this.

If your going to get a ford 5.0 get a model 1989-1993 mustang 5.0. You want the mass air system used on these motors and not the bullshit speed density system on earlier models. Also they came with a ford AOD automatic trans or a tremec t-5 5 speed from the factory, never a c4. I'd say go with the t-5, but both trans will take tons of punishment and ford 5.0's are some of the toughest motors ever built. I have a lot of experince on these motors and transes.....Ive owned a 89 t-bird and still have my 91 GT stang. If you have any more questions or need more info pm me. I have a project in the works for a 5.0 HO and an aod into my 85 celica coupe.

There is no manual transmission that will bolt to the VH45. A 5.0 Ford or small block chevy would be easier to swap in because they are much smaller that the VH45, which is almost 30 inches wide. The VH will hit the brake booster, so something must be modified for it to fit.
