Got the new Mustang from Lem today

In a few days, we'll start taking it apart. We're installing a 600" Boss 429 with our new heads and parts. I will be asking for help along the way. I'll post pix of the progress. First question: does anyone make motor mount adapters to put a 460 in the 2005-2008 Mustang?
We could build something but I'd like to use as many available parts as I can. To be continued ..... Kaase

Jon, as new as that model Mustang is there's probably not anyone making swap mounts yet. If I may suggest, call http://www.rcmotorsports.net and get one of their motor mount kits that they offer for their cross-member kits. They have different sizes available and I have use one when we put a BB in a '72 pickup my nephew use to have. It will eliminate some fabrication work and should be easily adaptable to any kind of car or truck. This photo is for a SB but they do have a BB kit.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take and post lots of pictures. I think this project may fall into lots of guys 'dream car" project when they see what your doing.

As far as mounts, have you thought about modifying a set of Fox style swap mounts? I dont know how close they would be in the new chassis. Its Basically the same chassis design, just some stuff moved around.

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

When I started to look for a used Mustang I was surprised that the 05-07 cars were still worth so much. A good 05 with 50,000 miles was going for $18,000-19,000. For about 5000 more you can buy a new one. Also the financing on a new one has cheaper interest than a loan on a used one. Now there's 2500 cash back. So the way it worked out is it costs $470/month, and I put nothing down. Also we have a new engine to pinion flange combo to sell. Engine, clutch, bellhousing, trans, driveshaft, everything new to sell. ... Kaase
