5.0 into a 4 eyed 4 clinder

Discussion in 'Fox 5.0 Mustang Tech' started by Jarrell, Dec 4, 2003.

  1. Here's the deal.
    I have a salvaged 87GT that I bought for $1000. It has major left quater pannel damage and some other stuff that makes it not worth the money to completly fix with my budget right now.
    My neigboors would sell me their cherry four eyed 4(not sure what year) cilinder for $400.
    I'm going to buy their car and swap almost everything from the 87 to it.

    Is there any major issues in the swap or is it just a time consuming hassel that I hope it is?

    I know what I have to swap: Engine, Tranny, rear end,blaah, blahh blahh.
    I know it's alot of work but I'm asking if there is some strange reason that it wouldn't work?
    Any help would be greatly appreatiated.
