pondering another swap....uh oh

so ya...im kinda pondering another swap

3.8 v6 mustang with a 4.3 ranger crank.

i can get one super cheap with a rear end and all...

id build myself a twin turbo set up...my buddy and i are tossing around the idea...

anyone have any suggestions or ideas on this subject?

remember that building a car shouldn’t come from parts it should come from deep inside your soul. let the car speak for all the emotions, memories and experiences youve made and the car will take a life of its own. truth over fame.

Good luck fitting the turbo's in there. the motor isn't much narrower then a mod and if you look @ any of the modmotor foci, they're really restricted to what headers they can use because of the tight fit.

Plus cost is a factor. Sure you say you can get the motor and stuff cheap but building the bottom for boost and the turbo kit (assuming you can get it to fit) is not going to be cheap.

Boost your SVT motor you'll save yourself time trouble money and you'll have a hell of a sleeper.
