Welcome. Cool, a Fox with a Cleveland. I want to do this with my Fox. Which route did you go for the engine swap kit or piece together parts?

I did not use a kit, a lot of research and made my own. I used moroso pan but will be switching to kevko this winter. 2”d&d headers, 5.0 motor mounts. It’s hooked to a c4 with 4:56 gears. Needs a lot more stall.

Cool. I heard one can use an oil pan from a truck that had a 351m-400 but those are suppose to be hard to find now days. Also heard 71-74 Mustangs with Clevelands headers will fit but with some mods to the divers side for steering shaft. A few piece together tricks out there people say work so that's why I was wondering how you did yours.

What stall do you have now and what do you need? What tire are you running for them 4.56 gears? I have a 70 Cougar. 359c also with a Brent custom Bullet solid flat cam. c4 with 3000 stall, 4.11 gears 27x11.5x15 tires. So far best 1/8 are back to back 7.2@95 mph. Best quarter is a 11.56@117 but my 1/8 time on that run was a 7.38@94 so I'm guessing it will go 11.3-11.4 in cooler weather. Was 105 that day. I too need a higher stall. I have a brand new 5000 one my buddy built for me but I have been redoing alot of stuff on my car since this covid crap. Put it to you this way, I just finished rewiring the whole car. I put rear adjustable shocks and different front shocks and 2 degree pinion wedges and need to get my Caltracks dialed in again before putting that 5000 stall in. You have any videos of your car running?

I think he's running factory heads and fairly low compression.

Ya Fox Mustangs are easy to make quick with the weight, wheel base and 4 link "Chevelle copied" suspension. Funny Ford copied the Chevelle for the Fox 4 link so Chevy copied the Ford FE to make an LS. That's why I want to put my Aussie 2v - .060 cast piston 362c with the c4/2500 stall I pulled out of my Cougar in my 88 GT. Ran 12.75@106 in the Cougar. Im sure it will push the GT to mid/low 12's. Want to build this for my girls to play with. Plenty fast for their first race car.

Yes I also heard you can use those parts but I didn’t want to experiment and find out that you couldn’t. Currently it still has the factory k member and that makes it extremely tight and hard to get headers in. I do have a tubular k member to put on and that will make things a lot easier. I am running a 3-3200 stall now but it will only hold to 2000rpms I’m thinking I need like a 4500-5000. Something like that. I give up a ton in the 60’, you can see in the videos it’s right at the 60 where it comes on. I am running 28x10.5x15 Mt’s right now. Also Brent is correct it’s only 9.5:1 compression with factory 4v cc heads with no port work. I do have some videos that I will try to upload.

easiest way and clearest way is to upload your videos on Youtube then copy and paste link to here. Ya talk about 60' , my best 60' is a 1.65 on a 7.24 eighth mile run. The 11.56 quarter mile was a 1.68 60' My old motor best 60' with that 2500 stall was a 1.71 That engine about 325-340 hp but seemed to be matched well with that converter 4.11 gears and 26x9 Hoosier QTPs. The current engine dynoed 520hp@6300 and 450tq@5600. 3000 stall is not the best for it. Little doggy out the hole too.

Best pass of the year. https://youtu.be/eSyfNqdXxcc. 11.80 at 118
Just put mufflers on to drive to work. https://youtu.be/E_dfhd9sAYQ
Hope that works.
My 60 was a 1.9 almost every pass, I hope to get it down with the new stall. You had a good 60 for what you had there. I hope to get there eventually.
