actually, i did not buy the car to wrap around the parts, i have the car 6 months before the engine.the engine was a gift, and i figured... since it does make allot of power, and i love creating things and making things fit, why not go for it? it would make a neat show car huh? and i was actually looking for an opinion when i first posted this topic,but since then, i have been on a few other forums and make some blue prints and talked to some professonal mechanics who would like to help me do this cause it will be a very unique car and they want to see how it turns out. and when i first posted this topic, i wanted an opinion on wheather i should put in a 350 chevy, or the srt-4 engine.i never actually got that...i got a bunch of stuff about selling the car of putting a 302 in it. that was not what i was looking for.

let me get this straight. you want more pep in your 88 mustang so you want to put a dodge srt4 motor in. WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING SON?

AND ITS EASIER BECAUSE IT HAS MORE THREADED HOLES?

this is not something you should realistically be considering. ghettos right sell it find a nice 5.0 5 spd mustang. goto hotrod heaven with that.

if you like chevy why didnt you put money into a chevy?
why put a 4cylinder turbo from dodge when you have the 2.3T avalible?
both when built make similar power? unless you just want a stock srt4 motor in there? then thats not making sense either. just start makin payments on a new srt4. would be cheaper, than fabrication/customization.

i want to leave some of your *** unchewed.
bottom line- YOUR A LITTLE CONFUSED, SLEEP ON THIS ONE!
maybe sell your pieces to recoop your losses

it will be easier because it has more holes in it, this means i wont have to drill any. and i will NOT sell the car. i have done to much work to it already.

o and also, i know most people do it, but its not motor, its *engine*. the word *motor* comes from Britain and it is technically an electric *motor*. gasoline *engines* should be called *engines*. sorry, but this just bugs me.

hey punk, i was workin at dealerships before you were born.

you should pickup an english dictionary.

we're in the US, in the US we speak english, english is made up of words from the dictionary,the meanings of the words you use can be found there.

Dam, I guess I better start saying enginecycle instead of motorcycle, enginecar instead of motor car. And I better stop using that dam motor oil in my "engine" before I ruin it.

Come on now, he is only 15. This is a good time to help educate him rather than belittle him.

I personally also dislike the use of referencing an engine as a motor but this comes from my line of work and my hobbies. Just a technicallity but it can make a big difference in some circles.

Come to think of it...why do we park on a driveway and drive on a parkway????????

oh well

o and also, spinn. does that say that you are 30? cause if it does, then that means before i was born, you were either 14 or very early 15. now i talked with my dad, and he says that in his day (he's 36) you could be a lot boy at the age of 14.i dont really consider that *working at car dealerships* so that means you were either a lot boy, or you were not working at car dealerships.


and lonestar, i thank you. not sure if you were backing me up or what, but i think you know what your talking about.

Aw, I'm just jabbing a little fun at the kid. I knew 30 years ago the technical difference between engine and motor, but the English language is a living thing and meanings of words change. It's kind of like calling a pickup a truck. It is more of a car than a truck these days but everyone has a big boner for their "truck" and nowdays we have these 4 door "trucks" with the teeny little bed on the back. Now that annoys me some, but not enough to get into a p**sing match with anyone over it.

I'll back you if you knock of the insults...if not your on your own. Remember that most everyone here has a lot more experience than you and you had better listen.

When you say that the engine already has a lot of bolt holes so you won't need to drill any more, how is it possible that you know they will line up?

Do you have any idea how much work and thought goes into basically re-engineering a vehicle?

If you look back I asked a question in regards to the sump locations between a Ford and a GM.

What is the answer?
