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)

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.

LSX swapped Datsun 240z. I'm planning on swapping a 5.0 into one in the next year or so.
had a 280zx turbo, will read up on weight.

and no hate on 9.5 deck ford stuff, just dont want to sling the stupidly heavy crank to any rpm.

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.

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.
