Engine swap/project car idea

what would you do, got t boned and my 2011 totaled, have done the fox bizz multiple times, had a mach, looking for a swap this time. Money doesnt really matter, something along the lines of an lsx 2nd jen rx7. Would go the miata route, but they cant fit a decent sized tire under them (hard top on it only)

LSx swapped rx7 is played out.

There is a ls2 swapped br-z that's pretty cool.

Crazy one that I've wanted to run-

4.6 DOHC swapped 240sx. They're actually fairly similar platforms. Overall I think a crazy poked and stroked 4.6 DOHC build with a T56 would go great in a 240sx.

LSX swapped Datsun 240z. I'm planning on swapping a 5.0 into one in the next year or so.

Your train of thought. Do you follow it?

I feel like I just read a telegraph translated from Morse Code.

What would you do. Stop.
Got t boned. Stop.
2011 totaled. Stop.
Done fox. Stop.
Had a mach. Stop.











69fastback is going to have an aneurysm when he finds this.

Also OP, why come to "Modded Mustangs" and tell everyone you don't want a Ford engine in your ride because they don't have enough power?
A 351 base is a good way to go.

Didn't see this but not a good reason to not run it, IMO

There's plenty of people on here that no longer have a Mustang. I love the Blue Oval just as much as the next guy on here but the LSx is a better motor for power to weight ratio. It's also easier to fit into most engine bays. I doubt a 351W would fit into a rx7/240z but I could be wrong. Either way for a engine swap build on a car that will probably be used for more than drag racing the LSX is what I'd choose if I didn't have a budget.
