406 chevrolet in a 90' LX Mustang!!

I am currently involved in this swap, you know "built Ford tough with Chevy stuff". I was wondering if anyone has done this swap before, and might have any suggestions??
Thanks in advance

pretty much any camaro header will work we used 1969 camaro headers. the passenger side is a near drop in, requires just a litte work. the drivers side is a pain. we had to cut the headers up and custom fit it. they now make a set to fit this swap but cost $$700-1000.00 , it is worth the money to also get a tubualr cross member , they make them with chevy mounting points, and a flaming river sterring shaft helps. all that was on the seond car we did, the first one we did was a backyard shadetree swap, i forgot which year of manifold we used , prety much any year fits the passenger side, i think it was from a truck with rear exit 2 bolt flange for the drivers side. or if you want to go fast just use a ford motor

Ford tuff not Chevy stuff

Why would you want to ruin a perfectly good car by dropping a boat anchor engine in it?
