302 engine swapped into a 67 coupe sixer?

Discussion in 'Classic Mustang Specific Tech' started by Boostedpimp, Feb 12, 2004.

  1. Ha Ha. You want to continue it in private but you want to try to look like some tough guy by posting what is probably some bogus address and try to make sure you get the last word. I'm in Texas City, Tx. boy. Next time your around Houston, just let me know. I'm not far from there. Way to look out for the thread by taking it private instead of posting one more time here. My guess is you will keep posting as many times as someone will post back. And your a disgrace to the human race. Your about a waste of a good nut. The world would have been better off if you had run down someones leg or been squirted into the toilet. Raise your right hand boy....see ya. :lol: What the hell is wrong with the ignore list around here, maybe I did not get to it before this cumstain had a chance to respond. :rlaugh:
  2. You say you want to do it yet you run away. :nonono: Who's the coward? :nonono: Its my real address and if you ever get the balls to back up your mouth, you know where to find me. I see you stopped trying to twist my words, guess I reached you in that respect. I guess you see I was right, because you decided to just attack me rather than look at the facts of the perivous posts. It must really hurt your inflated ego to be wrong oh so many times. I think everyone one here can see the truth about you now. The weak mind of a child trapped in a a body that can't cash a check his mouth writes. Keep calling me names, go ahead, it just shows what you truely are. I do not beleive you're 39, if you are you are the worst example for a Mustang owner, no wait, person I have ever had the displeasure of being in contact with. Grow up.
    I will not respond to this thread again (to answer you're childish comments anyway). You know where I live, you can send a pm, whatever. I'm waiting. I'd love to not that chip off your shoulder. You're the kind of punk that would bring a gun though aren't you? coward.
    Btw, isn't saying that someone shouldn't have been born the ultimate personal attack?
  3. This is exactly what I expected from a 23 year old college student who probably has mommy and daddy paying his way. Its funny how you can look at people's profile on here and see how old they are. Not 39 huh? Whatever boy. "Keep calling me names" huh? No denying that this boy called the first names. Worst Mustang owner ever huh? Let me give you a direct quote from his mustang page. "This is my 1967 Ford Mustang I bought a few years ago". I owned my first one when you were ten boy. And its funny how you got so smart about mustangs in a few years. Lets look at that aspect, that you claim to be so knowledgable about the I6 and its power potential. A direct quote from this boys site. "From what I've heard, 200hp is easily achieved from a 200 cid with this setup". Are you kidding me. This guy thats giving advice on this site and claiming to be so much smarter than me is quoting hp figures from literature that he's read or worse even, by word of mouth. The ultimate magazine racer. When he was shatting his pants, I was a professional mechanic for AAMCO transmission. I never give advice on this site about how to do something if I have not done it myself. If I use another source for information, I always give that source so as not to fool anyone about my own knowledge. Reading a few mustang books and articles does not make an expert son. Now he's spouting about being so brave as to give me his address. I emailed this assclown to take it private like he wanted and never heard back. I get on here and take him off my ignore list since he obviously wanted to keep it on the net. Bottom line is this kid has a mustang for a couple of years, has done very little in the way of mods, but wants to get on here and profess to be the know all about mustangs and I6 performance. Spend your money, mod your six and then you can talk about it from experience instead of quoting mag's or websites. Grow up boy. At least when I disagree with Dave its cause I think he is a little closed minded about modding mustangs sometimes, but at least he speaks from experience. As for not responding anymore, just like I said earlier, he will respond everytime. Cause thats what 23 year old boys do when they get called on their BS.
  4. Just to clear up a few things. I am working my way through college. I stand by what is on that page, if anyone wants to see where I got the information, email me. You know nothing of me, I sent you an email to show you something, I have been around and worked on cars for much longer than you think. You keep trying to bait me, and so far its worked. You know you're wrong about my posts and you're trying to save face. I don't care how old you are, you're just working from a mold.
    You keep jumping around, and running. I prove you wrong about the posts-you change the subject, you say you're ready to fight- you run, I call bs and then you try to make fun of me. :nonono: :nonono: True I should not have called you a moron, I would have said I was sorry, but you seem to like to prove me right. I suggest you don't talk about my family again unless you are ready to fight.
  5. go for it

    Go for it , we all had to cut our teeth at some time.I looked for a v8 for a year everyone I found had been molested. I finally gave up and bought a 68 coupe 6 cyclinder auto with air in great shape and cheap, have been driving it for ten years. I did put headers on it with duals and up graded the engine a few years back.The one thing I found out that the Mustang is easy to work on and thier is alot of help out there from fellow enthusiast.
  6. Please boy, enough with your internet tough guy act. I emailed you my town and state, with my cell number. If you think your so tough as to travel down here then do it. Otherwise, layoff the tough guy act. You may stand by the information on your sight, but you portrayed it as your own knowledge in your post. If you can't see the difference, then you need more college. I don't have to save face with you, I have my experience to stand by. You keep wanting to talk about twisting words, read post #35 where I explained why I would take my 302 over an I6 and why the bench seat did not make the entire car worth anything more, without using profanity, or getting nasty with anyone. Then read your tirade back where you spouted off like a child and started all of the name calling. You can't change the order of the post, so the proof is there. So stop your internet threats about how I better stop talking about your family, cause I don't care.
  7. boosted pimp, my dads friend swapped a 289 with the 6 cylinder in a 65 coupe. its a pretty nice car once it was finished but it took so much time and so much money, but if that's what your willing to do than you can do it.
    p.s. i dont even know if you are still reading this thread cus its just those two guys arguing :notnice:
  8. You really don't look at the order at all do you? #35. You quoted me, why? It didn't have anything to do with what I said. Did I ever compare an I6 to a moddified 302 like yours? No, I did not. You tried to take what I said and twist it, thats not ok with me. So yea, I got mad. You posted to stroke your own ego and you know it. Each time you bring up a post # you can not support your claims. Its there in black and white. Keep trying until this thing gets locked, its actually getting funny.
    You know I had calmed down a little and was going to edit the origional post or say I was sorry but then you posted and proved my 1st reaction to you correct. Again, I am sorry for this everyone. I'm trying to get out, but he keeps baiting me back in.

  9. The order was that #35 was the one you responded to by name calling, which I was stupid enough to do back. You did the baiting. You compared a I6 modded to a stock V8. I never said you compared it to a modded one. My point was that the same money spent on the I6 to make it perform like a stock v8 would net you more performance when spent on the V8. That is my claim and the posts support it. One undeniable, indesputible fact on this thread is that you started with the name calling and ranting. For arguments sake, I'll say I posted it for my ego. Was there any profanity in it. Did I call you a name of any sort or say you were dumb about cars. If I did post it cause of ego(which I did not) you could have simply pointed it out instead of acting like an ass.Like I emailed you, you must take a lot of sh** about your six, so you took it out on me. So this time I'm putting you on ignore and leaving it. Don't email me again either, you have my address and number if you want to use it.
  10. Only if you count "crap" and "moron" as profanity. Yes I said that first, never denied it. I called you that because it didn't make sense and wasn't relivent to what I said. You did a lot worse than that. When I prove you wrong, you just keep trying somewhere else, its not working. Think I'll give this cell # a try.

    Edit: I called, tired to apploguise for the moron comment and he just decided to cuss me out. Aw well, figured as much. I hearby drop it until he shows up at my door. MP67 if you didn't do the ignore thing yet, don't worry I won't call ya again, theres no point trying to talk calmly and rationally with people like you. Have a good day.
  11. Funniest apology I ever heard. I only got irritated cause I told you to call me monday through friday, and you caught me right when I was putting my kids to bed. Anyway dude, we might as well just let it go. I'm a grown man with wife and kids. Do you really think I'll hop a plane and come up there. Its a lose lose for me no matter what was to happen. And your a college kid who would be better spending your money on your education than a plane trip to get here and not know whats in store for you. Bottom line is if you don't agree with my posts just point out why without ranting on me, or ignore me, and I'll do you the same. Cause when I'm attacked, I attack back and always elevate it. I'm going to bed and I guarantee I will not give this a second thought, and I advise you to put it to bed and concentrate on your studies. My wife told me I was a weirdo for all the yelling anyway. Looking at it from her point of view, I think she is the only one making sense here.
  12. If you'd have let me get a word in edgewise before going into your rehursed rant, I would have. But like I said this is pointless. You're too stubbern :bang: to listen to anyone and just want to make up stuff. A child trapped in a 39 year old body is really sad, I pity you. You're now on my ignore list (and I am telling the truth unlike you), so feel free to bash me here all you want. You don't know what you're talking about and I'm not going to let it bother me anymore. So go ahead and get yourself off here all you want. If you grow enough balls to come here and cuss me out like you did on the phone, then we will settle it. If you do not, this ends here for me. :spot:

    Oh and I am soooo sorry for not being rich like you. Some of us have to earn what we have.
  13. Still not letting it go huh? Truth is, the boy told me he would come down here and take care of me, and then turned around and asked me to send him money for a plane ticket. What a child. When he called, I calmly told him I had said all I was going to say, he then proceeded to tell me he was wrong for calling names first but then said he had a good reason cause I twisted his words and it was my fault. Does not sound like an apology to me. What makes you think I don't work for what I have son. The year before last, besides my regular 2250 hours that I work in a year, I put in 1600 overtime hours. But another example of a child judging people without knowing their situation. You got a lot of growing up to do son. Mechanical engineer? I work with chemical engineers all the time. With a know it all attitude like you have, you won't get far in the engineering world. Good luck. Then I posted that we should both let it go, and did 0 name calling or flaming, and you get back on here and tell me to grow some balls. Its a tired act son. Let it go.
  14. I hear you guys.. I just picked up a 8.8 rear and a built up C4 but i'd like to go manual so Im looking into ideas for that currently
  15. Dude, I would go with a 5 speed. By looking at your sig, it looks like your used to that, and may not like not having that overdrive. I have a four speed in mine, and it sucks for any highway driving. I'm looking at a tremec with a conversion kit that will allow me to bolt up to my scattershield. Theres lots of info about putting a 5 speed into the classics and alot of guys on this board have done it. Try doing a search on the forum for that subject and you should come up with some good stuff. Good luck.

  16. thanks man and yah I've been digging into the many post that search gives geeez oh and yah I've got a turbocharged v6 auto.. so no auto in this thing.. I want to snap necks :banana:
  17. Boy has this thread degraded to crap. The original question was "what is needed for the swap". I was the first responder and posted a web site with the information. Unless that information is incorrect what more is needed?
    As the owner of a converted I6 car, I can tell you there are advantages. Firstly it is very unlikely that the car has been tweeked by a bunch of hard launches. Second the car I have had a good body and a blown motor. The previous owner, who did the swap, had a great V8 drivetrain, suspension, etc., but a rusted body. (Sound familure?) Hence the swap made sense. Most classics that have not been restored need rebuilt suspensions anyway so the differential in costs is not that great. Although you do need to change the rear end. Since the original poster is aiming for more that 400 hp, a 9" is in order, so even if he started with a small block A or C code car he would need to up grade the rearend to a 9".
    By the way I have a bench seat, not high on the cool factor but very comfortable, I drove it 3000 miles from Oregon to West Virginia and was very happy with the comfort. I do suspect that a bench seat, although "rare" is one of the few options that does not increase the value of the car. It may even hurt value. No big deal with a restomod - just swap in some later model seats.
    I'm almost sorry for prolonging this thread with this post, but I think that not all is lost when someone wants to do this swap, as long as they understand what they are getting into and do the swap correctly.
  18. John, all good points. I was trying to point out the same things basically before I was ranted on and was stupid enough to rant back. Sorry to you and everyone else, especially boostedpimp for getting sidetracked. I'm into restomod myself on my car and suspect that is the direction boosted is leaning toward. Hey boosted, thought about a six speed?

  19. all valid points.. I've got a ton of info from this thread.. I thank all you guys again for it.

    about your six speed question.. that would rock but don't see myself with one
  20. I have been contemplating the same type of project are attempting. A few years ago, the GO FIND A V8 thing made sense. Today, you can't find a clean V8 car for less that $6k at least not around the Southeast. And that is for a standard 289 with the three speed, not a performance car. A nice fastback or GT coupe wil run over $8-10K.

    As for finding a beater V8, by the time you spend $2K-$4 on body work and paint to repair rust and typical damage plus replacing worn components, you will come out about the same as building up a I6 car. In addition, you won't be cutting up a real 289 car if you decided to add some modern conveniences. Plus, any of these cars that are up for sale typically have problems that need to be addressed.
