Ok, now I'm just looking for a set of headers and motor mounts to swap a big block into a Fox body Mustang. Just got my tax return back so I'm looking to deal. If I don't find any soon, I'll just buy new. Thanks, Brandon

Right now I'm just putting a stock engine in to get the exhaust, fuel system, etc, setup and I'm hoping that by next fall I can start building the engine I want. Probably going to do a stroker with aluminum CJ heads unless I find something else before then that I'd rather have.

By drop rack, do you mean just drop the rack and pinion or the whole K-member? Also, what is the best fitting headers and motor mounts for this application? Thanks, Brandon

Just the rack. It allows you to lower the motor farther down for hood clearance.

Motor plate and one off customs, only way to go, imo.

Looking for headers and motor mounts. I've found a Motorsports swap pan locally but if I can find a good used 7 quart oil pan (Moroso, Milodin, etc) for a good price I'd be interested too. I'm looking for a lot more parts to set up an '87 Mustang for drag. Thanks, Brandon

Thru some parts collecting I have both a steel front motor plate and a set of the swap mounts. Your choice, $ 50 plus shipping.

What rear / trans are you using ??

I'm still a little unsure about which transmission and rear I want to use. C4 or C6. 8.8 or 9 inch. C4 is lighter, I can use a SFI approved bellhousing, and it takes less horsepower to spin but they cost more to live at the horsepower levels I'd like to see someday. 8.8 I have already and are under many Mustangs running faster then I ever plan on running but if I can setup a 9 inch for close to what I'd spend on modifiying my 8.8, I may go that way. I'm still comparing prices between leaving the factory type rear suspension, mini-tub it, or just back halve it. Use motor plates or motor mounts? Basically, the entire project is going to be a cost analysis. I'm still doing a lot of research.
