The 455 makes more sense.

No trans brand engine swap goes right, and usually is abandoned. If you have to struggle to make it fit and spend time /money , is that your fun. I like bolting creations together they are made to fit and perform as expected. It usually costs much less to stay in brand. I know a couple of money pits that were abandoned.

A 350 is not boring . Do you know how many times i rebuilt those different ways?

I like to see what others can do with it. It is a comfort and familiar to me.

Any domestic V8 can be built to have a great time. Never boring with a 8 cylinder.

haha yeah i know they cant be ive always wondered what it would cost and how long it would take to do a 429 swap in it. but i guess since im already 5000 deep into my 350 might as well use it. so i looked up conversion parts and costs to put the 429 in a 89 mustang thoughts and views about that?

There is a guy here in town that did exactly that.429 in a Mustang.A sleeper times 1,000.Clean looking to the core and actually runs around with hub caps on sweet looking wider rims.When he opens the hood at first you see a super clean engine compartment,everything looks factory installed with the A/C hooked up and everything.Then you take a second take and say hey wait a minute,that's a 429.It does have a slight rumble to it.Runs like a scalded rabbit.And nope,it's not a stock 429.................He just wouldn't tell what he done to it.

So yes,I have seen one before.
