Gotta disagree with that one, love the RX-7 with Z06 engine swap. Also saw one with a Lexus V-8, I thought that was different. Also like the rotary in a 510, or other old school ride. Just saw someone with a rotory powered first generation I-Mark Isuzu, you know the rear drivers.

I am putting my chevy 350 out of my dragtruck into my 89 mustang notchback. I have caught some crap about it but the project goes on. The reason for the swap is I allready have thousands in my Th350 trans and 350sbc which has 400-425 HP on motor and when it goes in the mustang it will have a 125HP nitrous plate kit. So you figure 525-550HP in a notchback that will be driven on the street to me that equals FUN. So to me the swap I am doing will be one I LOVE

Yeah, purists get that way. I look at it this way you're looking for a car to go with the engine. If you think you're catching flack for that imagine if you had a Ford engine and located a Camaro or Vette to put it in, you'd catch soooooo much crap for that. I've seen it done as a guy had a twin turbo 5.0 stroked to 347 then was set to put it in an 80's stang, when someone offered him a 67 Camaro so he took it. He already spent the $$$$ on the engine so decided to put it in the Camaro, and every Chevy fan who saw it went Ape shit.

If anyone has done this before or knows someone who has and you have ANY information that might help I would be greatful. I already know alot about this swap but someone might know something I don't. EVEN IF YOU THINK IT IS SOMETHING SMALL I MIGHT NOT KNOW IT. THANK YOU

I'm not a fan of any swaps(or engines) in FWD cars... a sideways engine is just.. wrong
u can get the LS7 as a crate engine now
and yes the ls1 into a 69 camaro is awsome. there was one in PHR that had the ls1/4l65E with paddle shifters. u know how awsome a paddle shifted 69 camaro would be.

Saw that, the paddle shifter set up is great. Would love to put the new Z06 (LS7) engine (427) in a 69 Camaro. Friend of mine has a 69 C10 pickup he wants to put the Z06 in but might just use an LS1 as the Z06 is an expensive engine.

Go to JTR or jaguars thet run I think that's www.jtr.com or www.jaguarsthatrun.com they can help you put a SBC in almost anything. I have a couple of friends (they're cousins) one rolled his Lightning and he unfortunetly let his insurance lapse. His cousin has a 71 Chevy truck and I'm trying to get them to put the lightning engine in the Chevy truck. The engine has been pumped up to over 500hp and in a chevy pickup that should be fun.

Re: Engine swaps we like and hate.

A v8 swap into a RX-7 is shitty at best, but a 5.0 swap into a miata... GOLD. lol

Actually I've seen a 5.0 in a 1st gen. RX7, same dimensions as the Miata almost. I agree the 5.0 (specially a stroker) is pretty raw. A rotary in a Miata is cool too. I've seen LS1 GM engines in RX7 and there OK, I'd like to see an LS7.

Re: Engine swaps we like and hate.

Whats wrong with an LS1 or another V-8 in an RX-7. The LS1 only weighes 60 lbs more than the stock iron 13b. And it gives the car something its never seen before. Torque.
