5.7 swap?


Well I was looking around and heard you can put a 350 LT1 or LS1 into a V6 mustang. Apparently AJE sells the K member for it.

This has me interested, exactly how hard would it be to do this swap?

I imagine i'll need all the under hood goods, but what about linking it to the transmission or linking the chevy transmission to the ford drive shaft?

Is the swap really worth it or not?

LS1 isn't a 350


Either way its prob not cheap once its said and done.

suspension -> rear end -> t56 -> wiring -> k memeber -> ls1 -> misc parts.

if your gonna drop in a ls1 besides the engine youd need the t56 to go with it, the driveshaft, a 9" rear end, computers, wiring harnesses, the aje k-member you mentioned and im sure plenty of other stuff and fabbin up a lot of parts.

the only way this swap would be worth it is if you also did say h/c to the lsx motor first than dropped it cuz than youd be looking at 410+ at the wheels n/a wit a nice setup and supporting mods.

Actually LS1 Camaros come with a 7.58 inch rear end in the back.
My friend just blew his out, mainly cause he drives it like he stole it everywhere.

Key words right there. 9 inches is the way to go for strength in the rear end

a bone stock ls1 can blow a rear end like your turbo 6 did. just about every lsx guy pushing power has either a 12 bolt rear or a 9"

lsx is different
theres no need for a 9in rear unless your doing mid low 9s
or have a rediculous amount of low end torque such as nitrous off the line or a roots/twins screw

You quoted me with this why? Did you not comprehend the fact that I was telling Chris the guys who don't want to worry about their rear ends (LS1 guys) put in 9" rears?

walk around to the back of ur car and look on ur trunk lid, it should say "FORD" in a blue emblem, read it, learn it, and say it outloud if you must. Dropping an ls1 chevy motor into a v6 mustang is like fucking your sister, it just aint right. unless im missing somthing and doing this kinda shit is accepted?

an ls1 is in the lsx family still. bone stock camaros and firebirds blow the rears and thats why most guys will upgrade as one of the first few mods if they wanna build the car right the first time. sure the 9" may not be necessary unless youre running 9s but the 7.5" stocker will blow w/ a stock low 13 pass so theres really no inbetween
