yeah right you can find a block but you will have to build it yourself. not many have crate boss motors any more. i am still tryin to see if my girls step fathers brother has two. but i don't have much hope for it. might want to start looking for a cleveland engine bro. That should make you happy

I stuffed a 460 into a 71 just fine, except for some high compression starting issues with a possible starter overheating. hauls ass. its like putting your 4 cylinder on a go cart.

And its not heavy, just "bigger" than other stangs! :)

the mph's rise faster than the tach....kinda weird

The car is large. yes. But there is no fuel injection less wire and less over all steel and safty parts. air bags and so on. This info is coming from 3 diffrent books I have and the wait was a coupe 71 302 to a fox 5.0, I could not find the waight for a fox coupe just the gt.
