Thanks Bro. You are right but sometimes we have to stand up and put people into their right and deserving places. I will keep all up to date once I review and get some great knowledge for most of the cool guys here.Don't let some folks get to ya. It ain't worth it guy!! It's your car and it should make YOU happy not other folks!! I would like to see this too (newer motor install), especially installing electronic box and change-over to fuel injection and even a turbo. Even for my Six Cyl. I'd love to have a fuel injected six out of a truck with the stock cast alum headers and a strong cam. I feel this would give me more "seat of the pants" torque off the light--What I like about big blocks but a six cyl economy. Keep us posted please, also lots of pics. (Best for me!!)
I'm sorry you feel that way, as you mis-read the intent of my post. I praised you for your move to modern, and for doing the swap because it's different, or you just like it. I am not raining on your parade at all. But beyond those reasons, and knowing what I'm talking about; equal or better torque, HP and MPG can be had from various and often less expensive pushrod combinations. That's a fact.TO DAVID.....
THIS is why I hate forums like this. JUST like you said not to be harsh.... really. All you like to do is rain on someone else party by posting something stupid like you did.
I want to put the New Coyote engine and tranny to get yes BOTH MPG n HP..... that is the only reason to upgrade to new technology.
Why would I just put a new high tech engine and an old FMX or C-6 tranny... just plain dumb no stupid right David!!!!
I would use the computer out of a modern mustang with either a boss or shelby programming. Again to increase HP and get above average MPG. The old Galaxie with a HiPo 289 anf FMX tranny combo only get about 15 to 18 mpg'sss at best u dumbass.
With the new technology combo I should be able to get close to 30 MPG with the correct new gearing in the rear end. AS you can see I have thought about it and this is the reason I am looking to a true EXPERT that loves FORD's and has some knowledge it make this a great PRO-Touring type of car.
hmm thx for the info- when the time comes, I'll definitely check them out... had been kinda tossing around in my mind a AOD with gearvendors unit, but my 06 is a stick, and soooooooo much more fun to drive than the wifes 07 automatic... I'll check out American Powertrain- thanks!Actually ford4v429 i have a 6 speed in my 68 that was up against a 500hp / 450tq 460 that held just fine..the new t56 magnum is rated to 700 tq out of the box and trust me it shifts great! I got mine from american powertrain, you have to be patient they may take some time but they do complete kits and stand behind their work and are a great company...grey frederick really knows his stuff....with that motor in 6th gear i was getting around 20mpg...believe it or not. Overall their was some floor modifcation needed and trans support rails. I have a huge thread on it. Overall any backyard mechanic can do the swap.
Actually, that was not my main point, but rather that he could do even better. The whole contention was that he wanted to use the mod motor because it is a "better modern platform way more flexibility to build better HP and MPG". If he were doing it because it was "cool" or "different" that would be just fine - but that's not what he said.i understand what PSIG is saying. That is a TON of money to be spending on top of what you would on an old tech engine to make the same power, just to try to save gas. Seriously, thousands more upfront. It would take a lot of driving for the mileage to finally be the reason to make it worth it. ...
